About UtAS (HCT)

Oman Technical Industrial College was founded in December 1984 during the reign of the Forgiven one, Allah willing, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos, may Allah rest his soul in peace. In order to keep abreast with developments, the college name was changed in 1993 to Muscat Industrial Technical College and was later renamed the Higher College of Technology In 2001 which grants a bachelor's degree in various disciplines. During the renewed march of the renaissance in the reign of His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tariq - may Allah protect him - and by virtue of the Royal Decree No. (76/2020) the University of Technology and Applied Sciences has been established by merging HCT and other Colleges of Technology with Rustag College of Education and other Colleges of Applied Sciences across the sultanate.
