Welcome to the Deanship of Research and Graduate Studies.
The Deanship of Scientific Research and Graduate Studies forms one of the most important pillars of Applied Science University, Bahrain. This comes from the fact that research plays animportant role in any academic institution. Research has a major impact on ASU’s accreditation and ranking and for that reason a strategic research plan has been established in line with the Higher Education Council guidelines in Bahrain. We aim to increase both the quantity and quality of our research output and work hand in hand with the industries in Bahrain and GCC countries.
ASU offers master programmes in the field of accounting and finance and human resources management. These programs support the scientific research and can be considered as one of the main sources of research at ASU since teaching in the graduate studies should be underpinned by research. The Deanship of Scientific Research and Graduate Studies support scientific research, dissemination of research and provided financial support and deployed university resources to facilitate the task of researchers. There are efforts to prioritise research projects to have better community service and development locally and in the regions.
We encourage our faculty members to publish their research in international reputable refereed journals. This is very clear from the sort of different award for such efforts together with encouragement and support in participation in conferences, seminars, and workshops locally, in the region and in a wider afield. The deanship also supports the publication of research books composed by faculty members and this is very clear from the books published by ASU faculties, over fifty titles, available on the ASU web site.
