The aim of this programme is to prepare students to apply the archival laws along with technology they have learnt in different areas of archives and records management in real situations. In particular, this programme prepares students to practice their knowledge, skills in the design and implementation of records management and archival sciences.

MEC along with the National Records and Archives Authority of Oman provide the programme needed for the students and employees who are recruited for their higher education degrees (Diploma- Bachelor) in the field of records management and archives. Considering the requirement in the country and the region, a programme of this nature will be valuable.
