Students Activities

  • Mechatronics Engineering Society
  • Staff-Student Liaison Committee

Student-based societies provide students with opportunities to learn, promote 21st century skills, and offer a platform sharing of experiences and knowledge to develop academically, socially, and professionally. Ultimate goal of the societies are to promote research, industrial collaboration, and innovation in Oman, and assist in preparing individuals to become contributing members of the community and the world. The societies organize and host events such as seminars, conferences, exhibitions, and workshops. The program encourages the students to join such organizations and to participate in related events.


Mechatronics Engineering Society, MTES

The Mechatronics Engineering Society (MTES) was first established in summer 2005 by the first cohort of Mechatronics students, with the help of the academic staff. Nowadays, the society focuses on how to improve the skills of the students in the fields of robotics and automation. Moreover, the society gives the opportunity for creative students to introduce their ideas which include organizing new workshop, projects implementation, and organizing scientific competitions. Another goal of the society is to engage motivated Mechatronics students in different projects. This type of activity-based learning is considered to be the most crucial part of engineer education. Finally, the society organizes many events every year in order to nurture self-improvement for all society member sand Mechatronics students.

Chaired by the Head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Staff-Student Liaison Committee is responsible for selecting a designated number of student members in accordance with University regulations, scheduling meetings with them, and informing the Mechatronics Program Steering Committee about any problems faced by the students. At least two meetings are scheduled per year, and all meetings are minuted. The feedback received from the students is passed on to both ECE and MIE departments for suitable action, which is part of the continuous quality improvement process. The current members are listed below:
