Yesterday’s Foundations, Today’s strength

IUKL which was established in 1998 is the focus of Kumpulan Ikram’s tertiary education activities. Here is the chronology of events that have led to the formation of one of the most renowned tertiary education institutions in Malaysia.


The Research and Training Institute of the Public Works Department, Malaysia (IKRAM) was privatised and became known as Kumpulan Ikram Sdn Bhd (KISB). KISB inherited Ikram Park and IKRAM’s distinctive features and strengths.


Ikram College was established and made the focus of KISB’s tertiary education activities to nurture the leaders of tomorrow.


YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad (4th Malaysian Prime Minister) officiated the opening of Ikram College.


Ikram College had its name changed to Ikram College of Technology (iCT) to further strengthen its niche in the provision of technology and infrastructure based programmes.


On 13th September 2003, iCT was upgraded to a University College status with a new name; Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC).


YAB Tun Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi (5th Malaysian Prime Minister ) officiated the opening of KLIUC.


KLIUC is upgraded to a full-fledged University. With this advanced educational standing, only one name can reflect its strength: Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL), and the rest is history.
