It is a privilege and honor to welcome you to A’ Sharqiyah University (ASU). The University started its first academic year in 2010. Currently, there are three colleges; College of Business Administration, College of Engineering and College of Applied Sciences.


A’ Sharqiyah University (ASU) is committed to be a leading higher educational institute in Oman with emphasis on quality and excellence in teaching and research. The rapid and growing demands of the Sultanate require high caliber graduates capable of critical thinking to meet the challenges of the future. We endeavor to advance knowledge and provide services to the society based on the highest international standards by means of relevant programmes and the latest technology. At the same time, the University is providing the best possible teachers, professors and administrative staff to obtain high quality education and services to offer our students.

As part of the University’s future expansion, we will continue to review the current programmes and to add new programmes in line with our strategic plan. Furthermore, a new campus is to be constructed soon to provide more facilities to students, faculty and staff. With the on-going road widening and expansion at the A’Sharqiyah region, the University will be accessible to the other Wilayats and the city of Muscat.

On behalf of all the staff and faculty of ASU, I invite you to join our University and once again, I welcome you to A’SHARQIYAH University and wish you a successful academic experience.
