In line with Oman’s 2020 vision, Gulf College is committed to providing all the required grounds to promote the culture of research among its members. The Research Department is responsible for managing and monitoring all research-related matters in the College. Our foci are on quality research conduction which would benefit the College in particular, and the society in general. To this end, the Department is responsible for the creation of effective, transparent, and clear research policies and procedures in order to serve the need of the researchers.
The Research Strategy aims at highlighting the College’s unique strengths and goals, going hand in hand with its Strategic Plan. In line with Oman’s 2020 Vision and the Ministry of Higher Education, Research & Innovation’s sustainable development programmes, the plan consists of five key focus areas. These include research culture improvement through research awareness activities and recognition of research efforts, research output enhancement, multidisciplinary research, creation of research groups, and local and global market collaborations.
