The Department of Applied Sciences is the first established department in the Sultanate of Oman. The department has undergone tremendous changes in the past 26 years. It started initially offering a diploma to School Laboratory Technicians who were taught basic biology, chemistry, physics and geology. Though the School Laboratory Technicians Diploma is currently being offered, the department saw a need of keeping up to date with the vast technological knowledge and competencies of the world around us. For this reason, an additional Diploma was introduced and this was known as the “Omani National Diploma” (OND) in majors such as Chemistry and Biology.
