D. Teaching, Curriculum Development and Advising
Teaching and Teaching Evaluations
During the time I have been in SQU I have been involved in developing and
teaching courses at various levels in the Department of Mathematics and
Statistics. These courses cover both theoretical and practical aspects of a wide
spectrum of areas within Statistics and Probability. They include courses for
undergraduate, diploma and postgraduate programs.
My student evaluations have been consistently high. My overall rating as a good
teacher by students for any course has rarely dropped below 3, and the overall
mean score for the last three years is 4 out of 5. Details are in Appendix A.
Student Project Supervision
I have co-supervised and supervised more than 30 final year student projects,
probably the highest number by any staff member in the department so far,
including co-supervising one project in Mathematics, in addition to one from the
Department of Civil Engineering. Most of the topics for the projects are related to
Oman, such as analyzing data of Oman traffic accidents, Muscat Security Stock
Exchange, prevalence of cases of diabetes in Oman, the incidence of leukemia
among children treated in SQUH, to mention a few.
D.1
Postgraduate
The Statistics postgraduate program in DOMAS, which I helped to design, is still
at its infancy, and has only graduated a few batches of students so far.
Nonetheless, this has not hindered my active involvement with postgraduate
studies within the University.

Curriculum Development and Teaching Management
The statistics teaching programs in Sultan Qaboos University have expanded
significantly and undergone tremendous changes since I joined the
department in 1990, and I have been very much in the centre of every one of
these innovative transformations.
D. 3.1 Undergraduate degree program
I have participated actively in restructuring the Statistics degree program, by
designing new courses and modifying or phasing out old ones to meet
market demands and new challenges, and to allow for enough flexibility for the
student majoring in Statistics to graduate with a minor in Business Studies,
Computing, or Mathematics. I am currently involved in developing three new
degree programs of Biological Mathematics, Financial Mathematics and
Computational and Industrial Mathematics. I am also involved in developing a
degree in Bioinformatics.
D.3.2
B Sc. in Health Statistics
I played a pivotal role in the curriculum development of a new undergraduate
degree program in Health Statistics (1997), tailored to the needs of and
requested by the Ministry of Health. I subsequently became the coordinator for
the development of the degree program, which also involves the departments
of Biology in College of Science, and Medical Statistics in the College of
Medicine and Health Sciences, and to liaise with the officials of the Ministry of
Health on all matters pertaining to the program. The program is now running
and has already produced graduates now employed by the Ministry of Health.
It has become a very popular choice among students taking Statistics in the
Curriculum Vitae – Charles S. Bakheit
Page # 8/18
Department. I continue to serve as the College Liaison Officer with the Ministry
of Health for this program.
D.3.3 M. Sc. Program in Statistics
I have made significant contribution in designing the current M Sc. Degree in
Statistics. The Department has already graduated its very first batch of postgraduate students in Statistics, and has a second batch due for graduation this
year.
I have taught several of the M. Sc. courses on offer and have
supervised two MSc. Students theses.
D.4
Student Advising
Since joining Sultan Qaboos University, I have served as an academic
advisor to a large number of students.
In 1997, I was assigned by the
Department as the academic advisor to the first batch of students majoring in
Health Statistics, a task I continue to discharge up to now. The number of my
advisees has varied over the years from 10 to 40 a year. This year I have 40
advisees.

F. Scholarly Achievements
My research interests include stochastic modelling in the physical and the life
sciences, data analysis in the medical, agricultural and engineering fields. As can be
gleaned from the list of my publications, most of my recent research and project work
with the students is largely in the areas of Applied Statistics and directly related and
relevant to Oman. This underlines the great demand for statistical consulting in the
University, and my mission and endeavours in propagating sound statistical thinking
and the application of appropriate statistical techniques in some of the many
important baseline research work being undertaken in the University as
demonstrated by the depth and breadth of my publications listed below. Needless to
say, statistics is inherently an applied subject, of which data-driven model building is
a significant and integral part.
I have also contributed to the study on the limits
properties of Semi-Markov processes and their applications in Applied Probability,
and contrasted the application of Artificial Neural Networks techniques with statistical
methods, using Oman traffic accident data. I continue to do research in both the
applied and theoretical aspects of statistics.
I have collaborated with some
colleagues in the College of Engineering to work on modelling of air pollution and
traffic accidents data analysis. I also collaborate with colleagues in the department of
Biology to further the study of the ecology of Omani turtles. I am also pursuing
research in the theory of Semi-Markov processes. There has been a great deal of
interest in this area in recent years, particularly in the computational aspect of the
subject. I am also an avid interest in the development of higher education in my
country and worldwide.
