Chemistry is an experimental as well as theoretical science where process and concept mastery are highly important. It is an important asset that is needed for the creation of a sustainable, more affluent and wiser society through the designing and synthesis of new multifunctional materials/substances, the discovery of new structures and the investigation of functions based on acquired knowledge. In the 21st century, the demand for chemistry have diversified and increased. In order to respond to these demands, it requires a diversified approach on chemical education and chemical research. In the modern era, we can only respond to the expectations and demands from the society when the fundamental chemical knowledge that produces new multifunctional materials such as water purification and separation membranes, energy storage and harvesting materials, optoelectronic materials, electronic display materials, biomaterials, artificial nucleic acid and neurons etc. is directly related to improving the efficiency and the productivity of devices. The industrial production of those materials is linked to chemistry throughout directly or indirectly.
• General Education Diploma or high school diploma. • Certificate issued from outside the Sultanate (need to be equivalent to the Ministry of Education in the Sultanate). • Certificate issued from within the Sultanate and under the supervision of others other than the Ministry of Education (need to be equivalent from the Ministry of Education). • High school percentage of 65% or above and 70 % or above in Physics or Chemistry. • The student must pass part of the foundation program (mathematics, computer, and learning skills) as a general requirement for all students before starting the program. Students who have studied in other educational institutions recognized by the University may be eligible to transfer if the transfer student has earned a grade point average of 2.0 or higher over a four-point grade scale; however, special cases may be considered if the GPA is lower than 2.0 provided it is at or above 1.0. The head or dean of the academic department in which the student has enrolled shall evaluate all courses taught at the former University in which the student earned a grade of C or higher.
