The establishment history of Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia started off on September 16, 1993. The university was formerly known as Pusat Latihan Staf Politeknik (PLSP). The core business of PLSP then was to train and produce polytechnics academic staff to become knowledgeable and skilful in various engineering fields. PLSP was upgraded to Institut Teknologi Tun Hussein Onn (ITTHO) on April 12, 1996. This promotion is an acknowledgment to the institution that has excelled in producing human resources for technical education.On September 27, 2000, the institute achieved another milestone when the Malaysian government agreed to award a university-college status to the institute. This was to recognise its contributions in science and technology-based development as well as in helping the nation to achieve its aspiration. With the new status, the institution was known as Kolej Universiti Teknologi Tun Hussein Onn (KUiTTHO) .KUiTTHO continued to grow and progress, producing graduates who were skilful, knowledgeable and competitive. Consequently, the Malaysian government, on September 20, 2006, agreed to award the university-college a full university status and changed its name to Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia(UTHM) on February 1, 2007.Visit us at http://www.uthm.edu.my
