Our anticipated vision is that the College of Science aspires to maintain its standing as the premier national institute and to become a renowned regional academic institution for excellence in teaching, research, and community services. Concurrently, we are pledge-bound to uphold our mission to provide outstanding education in Science, to conduct high-quality research of national and international importance, and to support the scientific development of the Sultanate.
In the recent years there have been intensive efforts to implicate and execute the strategic plan, diversification and increase of our postgraduate intake in all 9 postgraduate programs. In addition, number of PhD and MSc graduates has increased compared to previous years. These efforts have been strengthened by many research collaborations and international research agreements. The College of Science research outcomes are at very good standard. Despite intensive teaching duties and other academic & administrative activities our academic staff members are involved with scholarly activities i.e. regular journal publications, conference & workshop attendance, research and project supervision, seminar presentations etc. In 2014, our research productivity has increased in comparison to the previous years. Our faculty members have been making proper use of the various grants they secured through His Majesty (HM) Trust, Internal Grants (IG), the Research Council (TRC) Grants and other venues. In parallel, the College has been putting all efforts to ensure proper use of its human and material resources in the most effective way.
