Caledonian College of Engineering (CCE), one of the reputed Institutions in Oman, is undergoing expansion with the opening of an additional campus at Airport Heights. Applications are thus invited from qualified, dedicated and experienced personnel for a variety of positions in academic departments. CCE provides outstanding opportunities for staff development and qualification enhancement and offers mechanisms to support faculty in undertaking research projects.
Now in its 16th year of operation, Caledonian College of Engineering (CCE) is the leading private higher education institution providing high quality technological education for the Sultanate of Oman and the region in general. The college has affiliations with Glasgow Caledonian University in the UK and Vellore Institute of Technology University in India and has produced over 1,300 diplomates, nearly 2,500 graduates and 33 postgraduates since its inception in 1996. Today, CCE is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious private academic institutions in the country with a student population of over 3,000 and over 300 academic, support and administrative staff. College operations now span two campuses with the opening in 2012 of a brand new facility at Airport Heights to house the growing School of Foundation Studies.
CCE is categorised as a ‘university college’, as distinct from a ‘college’, in recognition of the depth of study offered in this specialised institution. Over the years the Caledonian has become a hallmark of quality learning and teaching in the Sultanate, taking an innovative approach to programme design and to the delivery of programme materials. Modern facilities, including wi-fi, smartboards and new laboratories, together with an emphasis on independent learning, allow for a variety of teaching and learning methodologies in the classroom and also enable learning to take place off-campus.
Graduates of the college enjoy a high record of employability due to quality programmes that fully conform to the Oman Qualifications Framework. All CCE programmes meet international standards as prescribed by agencies such as the Quality Assurance Agency, UK and the All India Council for Technical Education. All programmes of study are periodically reviewed by independent audit and a full quality management system is in place to ensure that high standards are maintained. Features of this system include external assessors, Governing Council, Academic Council, Assessment Boards and international benchmarking.
CCE takes pride in developing all aspects of a student’s personality through a wide range of extracurricular activities that include creative activities, charity functions and sports. In addition, a comprehensive professional development programme enhances soft skills, building on principles inculcated during the Foundation Studies programme that conforms to national standards.
