A key element of this programme is the development of cutting-edge and innovative energy technologies that can effectively deliver a carbon-free future in the face of climate change. In the programme, you will gain an understanding of energy systems, trends, policies and actions that are transforming how energy is produced, supplied, stored and used across a range of spatial scales. In addition to the interdisciplinary nature of the programme, a strong emphasis is placed on learning how to conduct rigorous academic research and how it can be applied in the real world. A major objective of this programme is to produce highly employable graduates who possess professional and self-reflective skills.
Successful completion of GCET Foundation Studies Programme with a minimum of 60% in each component. Diploma Holders are encouraged to apply for advanced entry.
General Education Diploma – Science or Art Track (Pure or Applied Math), or equivalent, with a minimum overall average of 55%
One of the main distinctive features of this programme is that you will get a British award from the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK while studying in Muscat.
In this programme, students will gain an understanding of the state of energy systems today, from generation to distribution, storage to use. The programme is designed to be interdisciplinary in nature and will help students better understand trends, policies, and actions relevant to energy systems today. As well as being introduced to practical examples and several national and global case studies, students will acquire the knowledge and skills needed to understand the drivers, complexities, and innovations of each stage. This programme emphasizes the importance of taking climate action and outlines the wide-ranging shifts underway around the world to transition away from hydrocarbons and toward a sustainable, zero-carbon future. To enhance energy efficiency and improve demand-side management on a small and large scale, students will gain a better understanding of the approaches used to gather, analyse and visualise energy data (for example, through big data analytics). The course will introduce students to the current and emerging energy technologies, as well as the professionals and innovators that are involved in their development. It will not only provide students with an understanding of the science and technology behind this infrastructure, but will also teach them how to plan, deliver, and manage energy projects. Students will also be introduced to the importance of site design and location, environmental assessment, and stakeholder engagement since these projects can be large, complex, and potentially contentious. The students will also learn about the funding processes for projects, as well as the responsibilities that different groups and actors have for ensuring that the projects succeed (including the end-users).
There is an increased demand for Energy professionals who can develop, implement, and maintain strategies and policies related to Energy in the Sultanate of Oman, the region, and the world. With the intent to transform the energy system towards a sustainable and zero-carbon future, the programme targets many sectors and domains at various scales and across a variety of domains. A wide range of jobs is offered across the public sector with local authority departments, central/devolved governments, and private environmental consultancies as well. Opportunities are also offered in industrial areas, Energy generation companies, Energy Supply and management companies, Energy technology and innovations, neighbourhood planning organisations, transport organisations (clean energy), and utility companies.
