Welcome to the College of Engineering and Architecture at the University of Nizwa. Our vision, mission, and objectives are reflective of our commitment to the College, University and local and regional community.

The College of Engineering and Architecture was one of the Colleges that were established at the initiation of the University of Nizwa. The Engineering program offered in the College cover different Engineering fields, which play a vital role in the sustainable development of the Sultanate of Oman.

The College of Engineering and Architecture offers Bachelor and Diploma programs for those who wish to strengthen their knowledge and practical skills in the following fields:

  • Chemical and Petrochemical Engineering
  • Civil engineering
  • Environmental engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Interior Design

Our vision is to be recognized by Industry, Accreditation Society and International Educational Institutes as achieving excellence in education, applied research and community services. Our mission is to prepare graduates to be creative, innovative and capable of addressing current and future challenges, taking Oman to a level of advanced and developed nations.

The Bachelor and Diploma programs offered with strong degree plans focus on outcome-based education that will enable the graduates to perform competitively in the international arena and be able to pursue their study to higher degrees.

In addition to the formal educational program, the college integrates many site visits, excellent laboratory sessions, industrial training, and summer training programs into the teaching program to further enrich the practical experience gained by the graduates during their stay in the University. Part of this practical experience is the final year projects, where the students get the opportunity to work on real professional design problems as well as research problems.

The college has engaged in several student and faculty research activities supported by the University and The Research Council in Oman, which has a great impact on the performances and quality of our graduates. The College organizes an annual National Symposium for Engineering Final Year Projects which provides a platform for sharing the latest innovation and research in engineering technologies and sciences as well as their potential for industrial applications. 

The well qualified Faculty members in our college are our real strength. They are highly accomplished in their field and present a blend of international level teaching and learning experience to the students. I am extremely proud of the learners, leaders, thinkers, and researchers who make up the College of Engineering and Architecture. I am honored to be a part of a team of faculty members and staff who are committed to taking the college towards better development and goals to serve the Sultanate of Oman with higher vigor.

Every student coming to the College will enjoy with excellent services provided by the University and the College, such as; online registration, student advisory program, academic residential living and learning, internships, high-speed internet, well-equipped library, excellent supermarket, parking facilities and clinical services.

Finally, let me wish the very best for all our current students while looking forward to seeing the prospective students joining the college in the near future to allow us to help accomplish their educational objective of becoming a successful engineer.
