Welcome Message from the Head of Department

Welcome to the Department of Computing and thank you for choosing the computing programmes at GCET to pursue your higher education studies.

Computing is one of the most dynamic, diverse and fast growing disciplines. It covers a wide range of applications including games, social media, security, e-health, e-government, e-education, e-commerce, banking, manufacturing, multimedia; just to name a few. The programmes offered by the Computing Department will prepare you to play a key role in driving these applications forward in the Sultanate of Oman, the region and the world. Our partnership with the University of the West of England will ensure that you will be equipped with the state of the art knowledge and skills which will be crowned by an award issued by the University of the West of England.

After graduation, your chance to get a job is very high because:

  • The percentage of Omanis working in the computing sector is only about 30% and the rest are expats. With the Omanisation policy, there will be many opportunities for qualified Omanis, like yourself, to work in the computing sector.
  • You will be holding a British qualification, which is known for its quality and high standards.

Finally, I wish you all the success in your studies and to have the best experience while staying at GCET.

Dr. Mazhar Hussain Malik
