Sultan Qaboos University, located in Muscat, Oman, is the only public university in the Sultanate of Oman. Named after Qaboos bin Sa’id Al ‘Bu Sa’id the Sultan of Oman, the university opened its doors in 1986. At the time, it comprised five colleges: Engineering, Medicine, Agriculture, Education, Art and Islamic Studies and Science. It has reasonably expanded in the past 20 years. Nowadays, it has eight colleges: Engineering, Medicine, Art, Commerce and Economics, Education and Islamic studies, Science, Agriculture and law. The number of students enrolled has grown from about 500 in 1986 to more than 10,000 in 2005. Female students form about half of the total population.
