IEEE worldwide membership is geographically divided into ten Regions. These Regions are further divided into Sections that serve as the centers of activity for professional engineers at the local level. IEEE – NCT Student branch was inaugurated under IEEE Oman Section On September 15 t h 2019, by the Department of Engineering at Nizwa College of Technology (NCT). The NCT Student Branch has been assigned a branch code STB 11525 with 15 students and 2 faculty members.
Our mission is to strive to graduate highly trained technicians, technologists, and professionals to contribute excellence to both the public and the private sectors.
We accomplish these through teaching, research and by converting innovative ideas and concepts to various technology applications. Our program has a strong tradition of excellence and success. Laboratory training and hands-on skills are emphasized throughout the program, which translates into the strong demand for our graduates from industries throughout the country. The strengths of our program are the quality of instruction, the commitment of our staff to each individual student and the training they receive in using modern equipment used in the industry.
Engineering Department offers five different specialization ; Electrical Power Engineering, Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and Oil and Gas Engineering. The courses offered by the department are structured as Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Bachelor of Technology. The Engineering department offers wide range of innovative, creative and real time blended projects to its students thought the eminent faculties from the department. The Department has state-of-the art laboratories which engrave the industry needs into the mind of young professionals. The department also conducts various seminars and workshops in areas of emerging technology for the benefit of students and staff members to meet the global standard.
Our faculty members have high degrees from various universities all over the world. They initiate and maintain research programs and technology projects and make every effort to involve students in their work. We have a strong commitment to encourage and achieve close interaction between the students and the faculty.
Courses are normally taught by faculty lecturers. Assistant lecturers assist in the conduct of the course, while technicians help in facilitating laboratory works and other related hands-on activities. All our faculty members are truly dedicated to their craft and are well-experienced in the various engineering specializations that we offer.
One of the main strengths of our program is the strong emphasis on laboratory training and the development of hands-on skills in students. Almost all of our courses have a laboratory component. This enables our students to better understand and appreciate the fundamental concepts of their engineering specializations. We offer the following modern and well-equipped facilities: Electrical Principles Lab, Electronics Lab, Communications Lab, Instrumentation & Control Lab, Electrical Machines Lab, Computer Networks & Hardware Lab, CNC Lab, Materials Lab, Thermodynamics Lab, Hydraulics and Pneumatics Lab, Fluid Mechanics Lab, Physics Lab, Chemistry Lab, Electrical Workshop, Mechanical Workshop and Welding Workshop. Also, several Computer Labs are dedicated for the use of various software such as computer-aided design (CAD), C++ and Matlab programming, digital signal processing, electronic simulation that uses Pspice and Multisim and word processing.
Linux workstations are also available for students, as well as fully-equipped PC centers and Internet laboratories. Apart from these, our students also spend time visiting partner industries for actual on-the-job internship training, as well as in field trips and out-of-campus seminars.
