Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) (English: MARA University of Technology) is a public university based primarily in Shah Alam, the state capital of Selangor, some 28 kilometres (17 mi) west of country’s capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Since that time it has grown into the largest higher education institution in Malaysia by physical infrastructure, staff·organization (academic and non-academic) and student enrollment.
The university comprises one main campus, 13 autonomous state campuses and 21 satellite campuses. With 17,000 of academic and non-academic staff, UiTM offered some 500 programmes ranging from foundation to postgraduate level. It is home to some 168,000 students: bumiputeras and international students, in full-time and part-time mode. The teaching is fully conducted in English.
