In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, Most Gracious…
Welcome to the Engineering Department, the largest department in the University of Technology and Applied Sciences, Salalah College of Technology. Its integrated function of teaching theoretical aspects in different courses, exposure to application of principles through experimentation, research and projects in pursuit of academic excellence, and training in the actual world of work in collaboration with numerous companies across Oman have paved the way to our Engineering graduates to gain more access to employment opportunities.
Our Department is composed of five specializations: Diploma First Year, Civil and Architectural Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Each specialization is categorized into three levels: Diploma Second Year, Advanced Diploma, and Bachelor.
With the University’s vision-mission of becoming a leading technological institution and producing competitive graduates prepared for a life of contribution and success, rest assured that our staff are imbued with strong sense of commitment and innovative capabilities. More importantly, the Department is gearing towards the modernization of infrastructures using the latest technologies in the field of engineering, continuous equipment acquisition-utilization and human resource development, and creative-active student-centered classroom instruction that would address the present and future demands of an ever-changing society.
As the world continues to evolve amid the challenges in embracing the new normal mode of online and remote teaching-learning, Engineering students are introduced to building their proficiency and skills through the use of various digital platforms utilizing Internet of Things ( IoTs), the 4th industrial revolution technologies including familiarization with artificial intelligence applications. I therefore encourage our dear students to develop a sense of responsibility by doing your best today for you will be the builders of Oman’s future.
