He is a Senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE), Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTTS), Jordan Engineers Association and the honor society Eta Kappa Nu. Prof. Khaled Gharaibeh is the winner of the Hijawi prize for academic excellence in scientific research for the years 2006 and 2007.
I have been involved in EU Funded projects which provided me with exposure to the higher education system in Europe. I consider myself advocate of the EU Bologna process and believe that the EU experience which funded projects have provided to the HE sector in Jordan has had a great impact on the attempts to reform educational programs, governance, policies in addition to improving the qualifications of academic staff which in turn contributed to enhancing the outcomes of the HE system in Jordan. In this context, I have acquired skills in outcome based curriculum development of engineering programs, quality assurance, internationalization of higher education and qualifications frameworks through my involvement in a number EU Funded projects, one of which I was the coordinator of. The Tempus project I coordinated was on Industry Oriented Master Program using the EU Approach. In this project and was the first Tempus project to be coordinated by a Jordanian university. The project was well appraised by the EACEA and I was invited to the Tempus Conference in Brussels in 2012 to present the project as a best practice of coordinating a Tempus project from partner countries. I have also had contribution to three other Tempus and Erasmus projects as well as a number of Erasmus International Credit Mobility projects. During my term as Head of International Relations Department I worked on promoting Erasmus+ program and on developing the proposal writing skills of academic staff at YU. I have also contributed as a speaker to a number of events at YU and other Jordanian Universities as well as the National Erasmus Days where I presented Erasmus programs and its benefits and guidelines.
I have also been heavily involved with the Higher Education Accreditation Commission on accreditation and quality assurance of academic programs at Jordanian universities as well as on the development of a National Qualifications Framework (NQF) for Jordan. Given my experience in Qualification Frameworks which I gained through my involvement in EU funded projects, I was selected to chair the technical subcommittee of the national committee of the Jordanian NQF which was formed by the prime minister of Jordan in Jan 2017. The NQF design was appraised by the government and then approved and is now in the legalization process.
