Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL)


Background Information / Date Established

Established in 1998, Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL) was the first Infrastructure University in Malaysia. The strength of IUKL today stems from its rich history. For more than 15 years, IUKL has been providing quality education and excellent professional services in various fields of infrastructure.

As a subsidiary of Protasco Berhad, a company listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia, IUKL is committed in engineering the future of tomorrow's leaders. IUKL's dedication in providing quality education has helped many students in acquiring the necessary knowledge, skills, and hands-on expertise in becoming respected practitioners in their respective fields.

Guided by the University's motto “For Knowledge, For Humanity”, IUKL strives to ensure that each student is fully equipped and empowered to meet the demanding industrial requirements by preparing them holistically today.


1997 The Research and Training Institute of the Public Works Department, Malaysia (IKRAM) was privatised and became known as Kumpulan Ikram Sdn Bhd (KISB). KISB, a company wholly owned by Protasco, inherited IKRAM Park and IKRAM's distinctive features and strengths.
1998 Ikram College was established and made the focus of KISB's tertiary education activities to nurture the leaders of tomorrow.
1999 YAB Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad (4th Malaysian Prime Minister) officiated the opening of Ikram College.
2001 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.
2003 On 13 September 2003, iCT was upgraded to a university college status with a new name: Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC).
2004 YAB Tun Abdullah bin Haji Ahmad Badawi (5th Malaysian Prime Minister) officiated the opening of KLIUC.
2012 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.
