Research at the University of Buraimi

Many of our faculty members accord importance to research in their academic activities. However, the implementation of research projects remains a challenge. Some of our faculty members wish to create a successful partnership with community organizations or academic research centers. The formation of research teams also is a priority for our faculty. The research Profiles of UoB faculty members show that many of them are actively involved in research. Table. 1 summarizes research activities of faculty members:

To support research activities, the department of research and innovation should continue the periodic update of the University research field by consulting faculty-researchers, deans of colleges and other relevant administrative units.

As stated by UoB Bylaws the research component in each structure has the mandate to promote and facilitate: fundamental and applied research;

  • interdisciplinary, inter-colleges and inter-university research plans;
  • conducting analyzes and evaluations enhancing the proper functioning of the institution;
  • research action plan and collaboration with communal organizations;
  • the promotion and dissemination of research achievements at various levels

Strategic Research Intentions

Developing research thrust will be based on the UoB strategic plan 2013-2017, the alignment to Oman 2020 vision, the Research Council strategic plan, etc. This will involve determining some intents with  examination of adequate resources, capabilities, support entities and development of policies/guidelines  as follows:

Intent1: Endorsement of research

Intent 2: Creation and development of cross-sector partnerships, inter-college and inter-university

Intent 3: Consolidation of community ties and creating new links

 

Research Thrust

The University continues its efforts to emerge ahead of academic universities in Omani communities in terms of innovative research, networking and knowledge mobilization. The research areas for each college in UoB are presented below (Table. 2, 3 and 4) are closely related to UoB specific studies fields, UoB strategic plan 2013-2017, and Research sectors and areas specified by TRC.
