Research in key disciplines is coordinated and facilitated through nine centers which serve as focal points for researchers within SQU and the Sultanate and for interested international scholars. These include the Remote Sensing & GIS Center, the Communication & Information Research Center, the Oil & Gas Research Center, the Center of Environmental Studies and Research, the Water Research Center, the Earthquake Monitoring Center, the Marine Biotechnology, Research Center, the Center for Omani Studies and the Humanities Research Center.
Research output addressing issues of importance to the Sultanate and the Gulf region is peer reviewed and published in international outlets, including the following six SQU journals: The Sultan Qaboos University Journal for Science, The Sultan Qaboos University Medical Journal, The Journal of Engineering Research, Agricultural and Marine Sciences, The Journal of Educational and Psychological Studies, and The Journal for Arts and Social Sciences.
The University has a medium-range strategic plan that charts its path for the period 2009–2013. The plan outlines strategies for building research capacity and for nurturing research excellence to benefit Omani society.
This site is designed to assist researchers to find information on postgraduate programs and on research support that is available at SQU. I hope you find the website informative and useful.
