Universiti Teknologi Mara Machang

Universiti Teknologi Mara Machang, Machang is one of the ten districts in the state of Kelantan, Malaysia. It is situated at the centre of the state, bordering with Kelantanese territories of Kota Bharu to the north, Pasir Puteh to the east, Tanah Merah to the west and Kuala Krai to the south. Its major town and administrative centre is Bandar Machang.

Established on the 1st of July 1985 Universiti Teknologi MARA Cawangan Kelantan (UiTMCK) was the 9th branch campus in Malaysia. Previously known as Institut Teknologi MARA Kelantan (ITM Kelantan), this campus was officiated by YAB Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Mohammad bin Yaakob. The campus was established with the co-operation of the Kelantan State Government and was built on a 12 acres land at Kem Kijang. Financed by the state government, the renovation process amounted to RM1.5 million in total. In 1996, ITM Kelantan was relocated to the current permanent campus at Bukit Ilmu, Machang district.
UiTMCK has ever since soared into a premier tertiary education centre and geared up by the establishment of its city campus (Kampus Kota) in Kota Bharu, in 2007. UiTMCK continues to strive and is ever committed into making UiTM a world class university at large.
