Apart from their dedication to teaching, academic staff at DOMAS strive to maintain a competitive research environment resulting in scientific publications in well known journals and consulting contracts with industry.
In addition to the teaching of mathematics and statistics, the department is actively engaged in fundamental and applied research. Some of the research done is of direct relevance to Oman. Frequent visits of international scholars for collaborative research with DOMAS faculty and weekly research seminars by staff, visiting scholars or teaching consultants further strengthen the research environment.
