About UTAS Scientific Research Webinars 2021

Welcome to UTAS - Scientific Research Webinars 2021.

Knowledge is what differentiates a successful nation from the rest. For a country to become successful, a strong research and education system is essential. Higher education institutions play a vital role in the nation building process by discovering and developing knowledge, producing a substantial number of researchers and research output. At UTAS- Nizwa, research is one of the strategic goals and we aim to engage in quality research and produce extensive research output in various fields of national importance. In an effort to further strengthen the research interest of UTAS' staff and students, a series of research webinars will be conducted from May to June 2021.
