Peace Be Upon You,
I welcome you to the website of the Military Technological College. I hope that the website will be useful to you in providing a comprehensive overview of its various programs and activities.
The college was established to provide the Ministry of Defence and the Sultan’s Armed Forces with specialized technical and engineering cadres through academic programs that are associated with the University of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom and accredited by various international academic accreditation bodies.
This is to consolidate the various engineering principles and theories according to the disciplines offered by the college. Besides the academic programs, the college offers a technical training program that provides students with the technical and practical skills that qualify them for the fieldwork. This is also achieved by having more than 120 laboratories and practical workshops covering various engineering disciplines. These facilities are led by a charade of professional academic and experienced technical staff.
The college also develops the disciplined and responsible personality in students through training programs, military and sports education and student counselling that are held periodically. The Military Technological College provides, through its facilities, all the necessary services for students, such as housing, food, sports and recreational facilities, and health services, all on an integrated campus. I am sure that the experience of studying at MTC is unique and will remain in the minds of our students as the first stage of success in their social and professional lives.
We earnestly strive for the Military Technological College to be one of the most prestigious engineering and technical tributaries locally and regionally, by applying the highest quality standards in education and training. The academic and technical programs are updated with the requirements of technological and industrial progress in general and the requirements of the Sultan’s Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defence in particular. Our motto is “knowledge and Perseverance.”
