The college offers undergraduate and graduate degrees, including a master's degree in IT, engineering and business.

The group offers more than 200 MOHE approved courses of which 60 are fully accredited by MQA in engineering, quantity surveying, architecture, construction management, information technology, computer science, business, accounting, art and design and nursing. Degree and master levels enroll about 5,300 students. More than 30,000 students have graduated from KTG colleges since its inception.

The university collaborates with international strategic partners including, the University of East London (UEL), Coventry University, Leeds Beckett University (LBU) and Bolton University (UOB).
