UWI-ROYTEC is a private tertiary level institution governed by the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine. ROYTEC was launched in 1987 by RBTT Bank and in 2006 RBTT-RBC transferred the management and academic operations to UWI St. Augustine. UWI continues to support the philosophy of ROYTEC which focuses on the seamless transition of young adults from secondary school to tertiary education, the development of teachers to support national objectives of creating a knowledge intensive economy, and corporate training interventions.
Our programmes portfolio includes business administration, teacher education, information technology, real estate management, entrepreneurship, project management and financial services. We are a leader in the development of indigenous and industry relevant programmes at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Further, we are supported through academic exchange by our overseas partners, the University of New Brunswick, Franklin University, Advocis and Commonwealth of Learning.
Our academic standards and operating policies are quality assured through our internal academic boards and committees, the engagement of qualified and dedicated faculty and the integration of best practices through UWI and our overseas partners. Moreover, our transnational programmes and institutional processes are quality assured by the Accreditation Council of Trinidad and Tobago (ACTT).
Our investment in enabling technology facilitates access to teaching materials and student support through platforms such as our Student Resource Centre (SRC), Banner Student Administration System and Desire2Learn technology. We have strengthened our resources for student welfare and development to provide the most supportive social, academic and physical environment for our diverse student population. Our dedicated resources for academic advisement and student counseling are sufficient to address our students' needs.
Trend data from our annual Satisfaction Surveys (2008-2013) show that over 80% of students are satisfied with quality enhancement indicators for programme content, high quality of teaching, intellectual challenge and the knowledge and skills developed at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
In addition, our Tracer Studies show that the educational experience provided by UWI-ROYTEC is considered satisfying by approximately 75% of all graduates with a positive correlation with graduates' career mobility.
UWI-ROYTEC is registered under the Companies Act of 1995, Trinidad and Tobago and operates from two campus locations, namely 136-138, Henry Street, Port of Spain, and Naparima College, San Fernando.
