About the programme
The Systems Engineering programme, comprising several diploma and degree pathways, provides a solid educational foundation upon which graduate engineers can build, with supplemental learning and experience, to achieve their professional goals within the Engineering Military and wider industry in Oman. Classic and modern theoretical and practical engineering concepts and applications are delivered across 9 pathways. Each pathway offers a robust academic programme in parallel with practical training that is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to meet the Training Needs Analysis as defined in Ministry of Defence competencies.
All of MTC’s Advanced Diploma/DipHE and BEng programmes in Systems Engineering are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
Advanced Diploma/DipHE and BEng programmes in Electrical and Electronic Systems Engineering, Power Systems Engineering, HVACR Systems Engineering and Vehicle Systems Engineering are accredited by the Energy Institute (EI).
Advanced Diploma/DipHE and BEng programmes in Power Systems Engineering, Mechatronic Systems Engineering, HVACR Systems Engineering and Vehicle Systems Engineering are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (iMechE).
Students are awarded an Advanced Diploma on successful completion of Level 7 of the Oman Qualifications Framework (OQF) and a Bachelor’s Degree with Honours on successful completion of Level 8.
Students are also awarded a Diploma of Higher Education and/or Bachelor’s Degree with Honours from the University of Portsmouth on completion of the equivalent Levels 3, 4 and 5 (DipHE) and Level 6 (Bachelor’s Degree) of the UK Framework of Higher Education Qualifications (UK FHEQ).
Students also receive a Certificate of Completion of Training Needs Analysis on successful completion of all TNA requirements.
Delivery and Assessment
Courses are delivered through a variety of methods on- and off-campus, including lectures, tutorials, demonstrations and simulations, case studies, practical work (fieldwork, workshop, laboratory activities) and project development. Students are expected to work individually, in groups and to undertake self-study.
Course assessment is structured around reports, essays, portfolios, presentations and examinations.
A key element of each program is the development and assessment of Training Needs Analysis (TNA) competencies. TNA training may be delivered and assessed in academic modules, individual modules or during Department Specific Activities (DSA).
MTC, in coordination with the beneficiaries, ensures that its graduates have career opportunities after graduation in accordance with the accepted programme and the regulations.
