The Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (University of Malaysia, Terengganu) or UMT, formerly known as Kolej Universiti Sains dan Teknologi Malaysia (University College of Science and Technology Malaysia) or KUSTEM, is a university in Kuala Nerus District, Terengganu, Malaysia. It was officially chartered on 1 February 2007.
It was formerly known as the University College of Terengganu (Kolej Universiti Terengganu, KUT) in 1999. The founding of the university can be traced back to 1979 when the Centre for Fisheries and Marine Science was founded in Mengabang Telipot, Terengganu. Over the years the centre moved on from its original role and diversified to become the centre for maritime and oceanography research and development. It was later renamed University Putra Malaysia Terengganu (UPMT). The Incorporation Order of KUT (Perbadanan) 1999 (PUA 292) was passed by the Parliament on 27 July 1999, enabling the inception of KUT.
The Malaysian government agreed to rename KUSTEM to Universiti Malaysia Terengganu in 2007. The name change was made because the term 'university college' (Kolej Universiti) tends to give a negative impression that the institution is of lower standard as compared to other universities.
Become an institution of generating, disseminating and applying innovative knowledge as well as catalyst for progressive human development and sustainable environment.
To accelerate the field of science, technology and natural resource management through the generation of excellent research and research programs towards human development that guarantees the preservation of religion, race and nation
