MUSCAT An academic information session for five new Master’s programmes was held at the German University of Technolgy in Oman (GUtech). The five Master’s programmes have received the approval of the Ministry of Higher Education in Oman: A Master of Business Administration (MBA) will be a double degree, conducted in cooperation with the prestigious Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), a Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Planning and a Master of Science in Applied Geosciences were designed in cooperation with GUtech’s partner-university RWTH Aachen. The MSc in Industrial Production and Manufacturing was designed in cooperation with the University of Brescia (Italy) and a Master of Science in Computer Sciences was designed in collaboration with Hasselt University in Belgium. The Master’s programmes include ample practical insights through internships and practical projects or modules. For example the MSc in Industrial Production and Manufacturing will offer six weeks internships conducted in Oman or abroad, e.g. at the University of Brescia and a MSc thesis and colloquium. Candidates of the MSc in Computer Science will have the opportunity to earn a second Master degree from Hasselt University, if they choose to spend one more semester at the University campus in Belgium. Scholarships are available for the first twenty Omani or international applicants and for all the Master’s programmes.
