Without any doubt they are making significant strides in that direction.

Located in the Kingston Metropolitan Area, the school was formally accorded university status on 1 September 1995. The institution actually began life in 1958 as the Jamaica Institute of Technology - enrolling just over 50 students between four programs.

Just a year later (1959), it changed its name to the College of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) before becoming an independent university during the mid-1990s.

By 1999 the school's population rose to well over 6000 and offering well over 100 degree, diploma and certificate courses!

The main campus occupying 18.2 hectares is located within the Greater Kingston Metropolitan Region in the parish of St. Andrew. The famous Hope Botanical Gardens lies east of the campus.

There are several bus that routes serves the campus with some buses going directly onto the campus grounds.

Many persons consider UTECH's programs to be among the best anywhere in the world! This is so because of the premium they pay on the practical aspect of their education.

And by the way (how can I forget), UTECH plays a key role in the development of Jamaican athletics as well..

Of course the institution is duly registered with the University Council of Jamaica as a tertiary institution whose programmes are eligible for accreditation under its aegis.
