General Requirements Department
After Rustaq changed from a College of Education to a College of Applied Sciences in 2008, the Department of General Requirements was formed during the Fall Semester with Dr. Salim Ali Al Yahyai as the first HOD. Since then, the Department has grown and gradually merged with the Communication Department and, more recently, with the Business Department.
To prepare students for their IT and Design majors, the GR Department plays a vital role in equipping the Foundation Year students with Fundamental Mathematics. It also provides First Year students with a solid foundation in Communication Skills, Arabic, and Business Studies. The Department aims to facilitate a smooth transition for these students into their respective majors.
Under the leadership of Dr. Noura Al Hosni, the present HoD of GR, the Department continues to collaborate with other departments to carry out the various activities undertaken in the college.
