In the large institution category, ROYTEC shared first place for Excellence for an established Quality Management System (QMS) with the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business. The award was received by Mr. Earl Browne, Executive Director, who articulated ROYTEC's commitment to quality education as "a journey to excellence that starts with ROYTEC's vision as prescribed by the Board of Governors under the direction of Pro Vice Chancellor and Principal, Professor Clement Sankat".

In a video presentation to stakeholders at the awards ceremony, ROYTEC showcased its quality management system as an instrument of analysis that focuses on sixteen (16) standards for quality enhancement and continuous improvement. Moreover, ROYTEC promoted its QMS as an agenda for institutional strengthening through academic excellence in programmes, teaching and learning and the quality of the ROYTEC student experience.
