“Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring true change while learning is more than absorbing facts, it is the ability to reason!” The Department of Engineering, University of Technology and Applied Sciences – Nizwa, inherently seeks and aspires to impart global standards of education via technology infused erudition, demonstration and practice. The eminence of the Department faculty is impressive with superior standards of experience in teaching and research. The Engineering department encompasses diverse specializations of study that includes Electrical Power Engineering, Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechanical & Industrial Engineering that includes the Oil& Gas specialty. All specializations offer three levels of study – Diploma, Advanced Diploma and Bachelor of Engineering. The students are exposed to the use of smart teaching aids and are trained to be versatile and analytical in their mode of learning. Elevated standards of periodic assessments, practical sessions, additional certified courses and job training sessions are conducted to ensure that all graduates of this department are prepared to face the fluctuating job market requirements. Diverse forms of team work activities, presentation meetings, project based group discussions and report writing practices are provided to the students to warrant their holistic development as graduates who are thoroughly trained to work in the technology sector. Many of our students bring laurels by their brilliant performance at Inter-collegiate project competitions and paper presentations. Most of our alumni are placed in highly reputed organizations while some have turned entrepreneurs who carve their own path to success. I would like to acknowledge the contribution of every staff and student to the success of this department and wish them the very best in all their future endeavors. As the world moves towards exploring the role of smart citizens in smart cities, as the Department of Engineering, let us unite and explore the unending possibilities for smart education in a smart world!
