The Quality Assurance Unit of Salalah College of Technology was established on the second semester of academic year 2007-2008, through the approval from the College Dean. After the establishment of the unit, new staffs were added to help implement the activities pertaining to quality assurance and accreditation. The coordinator was renamed to Quality Assurance Head of Unit immediately upon the creation of the unit, and staff experts on quality assurance and data analyses were added.
The unit is in charge of the full implementation of the quality standards based on the policies set by the Ministry of Manpower Quality Assurance Department, Oman Academic Accreditation Authority, and other governing bodies that concerns quality implementation and accreditation in the colleges of technology. To achieve its vision, the unit always bears the slogan "Quality is not an Act, it is a Habit".
