 In the College of Engineering we are striving to achieve our vision of being an outstanding educational and research college in the region. The College of Engineering is the top Engineering College in Oman and offers strong undergraduate programs in architectural, chemical & process, civil, electrical and computer, industrial, mechanical, mechatronics, and petroleum and natural gas engineering.  


The student should complete the course work requirements specified in the degree plan with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00. For the thesis, the candidate is required to conduct the necessary literature review, undertake the research, analyse the results, write the report and communicate the results at an oral defense. 

This work need not necessarily be original research, but should be a new application of ideas. The student should identify the research problem in consultation with the supervisor, which normally takes place in the second semester. 

The student should or can register for the thesis in the third semester after having completed at least 12 credits of the course work.
