In 2019, the University of Bahrain has become an Associated Institute in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the European Nuclear Research Center (CERN), adding to the University’s path of scientific excellence. This international collaboration is an important step for the Kingdom of Bahrain to achieve further global cooperation in science, technology and innovation.

One of the University’s main goals is to contribute to the global production of knowledge and technology development. Through the induction projects at the Colleges of Engineering, Information Technology and Science, the University has started to take part in CMS experiments conducted on accelerators.


The University of Bahrain has formed a team from the College of Information Technology to work on improving the current program to select the important data resulting from the collision of protons and a second team from the Department of Mechanical Engineering to design and build a special motorized jig for platform insertion for the maintenance of the CMS.
