Programme Overview

This Energy Engineering programme is underpinned by  “Sustainability” and “Technology” where the curriculum is designed systematically to provide students with a broad understanding of sustainability in various aspect related to Energy and particularly on decarbonizing the Energy sector. In addition, the aim is to provide students with state of the are Technology required for the 4IR where digitalization and Artificial Intelligence is the major part of Energy industry to improve efficiency and to develop new renewables and their applications such as electric vehicles.

“Energy Engineering” would be a promising programme to be offered as a response to the aforementioned needs in coming years. The focus of this programme is mainly related to renewable energy resources and the associated technologies while energy efficiency and the role of fossil energy and its contribution into the future energy-mix are also covered. It is believed that the near-term energy outlook is a mix of Oil, gas, and renewables. Students learn knowledge, thinking skills, subject-based practical skills, skills for life and work as global citizens.  The BEng Energy Engineering’s graduates will be capable to deal with all Energy Engineering aspects including energy systems design, operation, monitoring and system troubleshooting, project engineering, energy resource management, and a detailed understanding of a range of renewable energy technologies. The main objective of this programme is to prepare fresh, relevant, and innovative Omani engineers for the fulfillment of Oman 2040 vision, where those young engineers can create a balanced development, utilization, and sustainability of natural resources that is a priority to support energy security and the national economy.
