German University of Technology
Halban, Oman

The result of long-standing cooperation between RWTH Aachen University in Germany and the Sultanate of Oman, the German University of Technology, Oman combines design, engineering and construction that meets German standards with a superstructure that flows and fits seamlessly with Oman’s natural topography, and utilizes Omani products wherever possible. Designed to resemble an Omani village, the project contains all facilities necessary for the ease of the users from lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories, an amphitheatre and offices to residential, dining and sports facilities. The design was executed in 18 months and within budget. The university provides education in a wide range of subjects and welcomes Omani and international students.
