Faculty of Engineering

My name is Qasim Al Ghaithi. I graduated from Sohar University in 2015 with a degree in Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering and now currently employed by Minerals Development as a Manager - Asset Management. My studies at Sohar University helped me later, not only advancing my career but also enabling me to continue my master's degree in one of the best business schools in the world, HEC Paris in France, with an exchange programme at Cornell University in the US. Now I have over twelve years of experience in the Oil & Gas, Logistic and Mining sectors, starting with Halliburton as a drilling tools specialist before moving to OQ and serving multiple functions at different seniority levels: operation, maintenance, internal audit, and business development. Prior to joining MDO, I was Senior Manager of Financial Planning and Analysis at Port of Salalah, where I was responsible for driving performance management across the organization. In my current role with MDO as Asset Manager, I’m responsible for monitoring the group's diverse portfolio of investments and engaging with portfolio companies in strategic dialogue to drive value creation. As a graduate of Sohar University with a degree in Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering, I believe that the university provided me with the appropriate tools and knowledge and taught me how to maximise my potential in order to market myself with a competitive advantage and transform my prospects into actual opportunities.
