Sultan Qaboos University is the realization of the promise announced by His. Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said during the 10th anniversary of Oman’s National Day in 1980. Construction started in 1982 and the first Sultan Qaboos University students were enrolled in 1986. In accordance with the Royal Directives of His Majesty, the University commenced with five colleges; namely Medicine, Engineering, Agriculture, Education and Science. The College of Arts was opened in 1987,and a College of Commerce and Economics was opened in 1993.
The establishment of the Printing Press coincided with the inauguration of Sultan Qaboos University, in the year 1986. It was to function as a non-profit department, serving only the University and the SQU Hospital. The purpose behind that was to highlight the need of a good printing press, capable of meeting the voluminous requirements of the curriculum, publishing, and other stationery needs of the University. This includes the course books, periodical scientific journals, research books, and other books/booklets/brochures/posters, etc., to be printed on various special occasions, such as, graduation ceremony, University day, conferences, workshops, exhibitions and other occasions. The SQU Printing Press extends its best services, with high quality and capability in printing various jobs for all the Colleges, Centers, Deanships and other departments, according to its available facilities. In view of the growing number of students yearly in the University, opening of more departments in the existing Colleges, and the resultant increase in the number of printing jobs that we receive, we are looking forward to get latest facilities and new building, according to the University strategic plan, in order to meet future demands.
