December 12, 2019:    Sohar University, today announced that it has collaborated with Red Hat to create the Sohar University Red Hat Academy. Red Hat Academy is an open source, web-deployed and web- managed education program that is designed to provide turnkey curriculum materials to academic institutions to start and sustain an open source and Linux curriculum program.
