Accredited by

The German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) is the first private university in the Sultanate to receive international accreditation for its Bachelor of Science degree programmes.

All of GUtech’s BSc programmes were awarded international accreditation status in July 2009 by ACQUIN (Accreditation Certification and Quality Assurance Institute), ACQUIN. ACQUIN is a non-profit agency committed to supporting the enhancement of quality standards for teaching and learning in higher education worldwide.

The accreditation was awarded after a rigorous procedure that involved an ACQUIN peer group visiting GUtech in January 2009 and evaluating the academic programmes on offer. The group was made up of 10 experienced academics from four different German universities and two ACQUIN staff members.

Following their visit the group submitted a report to the ACQUIN expert committee who gave their stamp of approval. All Bachelor of Engineering programmes (BEng) and Master programmes will undergo the same process in the near future to guarantee a balanced and homogeneous quality level within every programme offered by GUtech.

All programmes at GUtech are also licensed by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation(MOHERI).

GUtech has successfully completed the first stage (Quality Audit)  and is currently working towards completing the second stage (Standards Assessment) in the institutional accreditation process of Oman Academic Accreditation Authority (OAAA).
