Overview

The University was constructed on an axis in the valley with one end aligned toward Mecca. We currently have close to 1500 students enrolled in master's and PhD programs covering medicine, engineering, science, the environment, agriculture, marine sciences, commerce, economics, education, information technology, and the humanities and social sciences. Postgraduate diplomas are awarded to students who satisfy certain coursework requirements only. In addition to acquiring world class facilities, SQU has promoted research activity by providing management structures, funding schemes, qualified staff, state-of-the-art infrastructure, regulations, electronic management systems, research centers and chairs. The University’s aim is to create a sustainable research culture able to contribute to the country’s development plans and to Omani society in general. Financial support may arise from HM Strategic Research Fund, The Research Council of Oman, University Internal Funds, External Contracts, Consultancy and Services. Research in key disciplines is coordinated and facilitated through nine centers which serve as focal points for researchers within SQU and Oman and for interested international scholars.
