The World Technology Universities Network are pleased to announce two universities from Oman and Thailand have officially joined the Network.
The new members are Majan University College, Oman and Thaksin University, Thailand.
Majan University College was established in 1995 as the first private sector College in Oman, and has continued to be at the forefront of higher education in the Sultanate ever since. In December 2017, Majan achieved full institutional accreditation from the Oman Authority for Academic Accreditation and Quality Assurance of Education (OAAAQA), and maintained its reputation as a trailblazer by being the first higher education institution in the country to do so.
“In light of 21st century challenges, technology and innovation are central to Oman’s Vision 2040 and MUC is delighted to have the opportunity to engage productively with universities across the world through the WTUN network to help in its efforts to support this vision. Data science and cybersecurity are growth areas for our research and we look forward to engaging with other members in these areas in particular” Dr Maha Kobeil, Dean and CEO, Mahan University College
Thaksin University was one of the first higher education institutes in the south of Thailand, initially called the College of Education, initiated by the Ministry of Education. This college replaced the High Teacher Training at Prasarnmitra Road, Phrakhanong District, Phranakorn, in 1954. It was established under the goals to develop a philosophy and modern educational concepts in association with a democratic society, including the in-depth development of education as a systematic career, respectively, to provide a degree in education.
Unfortunately, colleagues from MUC were unable to join us in-person at WTUC2022 in Thailand.
