University Malaysia Pahang (English: University of Malaysia, Pahang) (UMP) is a Malaysian government university. It was formerly known as Kolej Universiti Kejuruteraan dan Teknologi Malaysia (English: University College of Engineering & Technology Malaysia) (KUKTEM).

History

UMP was established as a public technical university by the Malaysian government on 16 February 2002. Incorporated under the Universities and University Colleges Act 1971 by the Royal Decree of His Majesty the Yang DiPertuan Agong, Kolej Universiti Kejuruteran & Teknologi Malaysia (KUKTEM) was set up as a technical university, specializing in engineering and technology. The university college operates on a temporary campus in Gambang, Pahang. The temporary campus was formerly an industrial complex owned by MEC. The university's permanent campus is located in Pekan, which is under construction.

On 8 October 2006, the Malaysian government agreed to rename KUKTEM to Universiti Malaysia Pahang. The change of name is because the words 'university college' (Kolej Universiti) tended to give the impression to the public that KUKTEM is a "lower standard" institution of higher education compared to other universities such as Universiti Malaya.[1]

The university consists of 18 departments/units and 10 faculties (some are known as centers).
