History[edit]

The initiation of IUKL began in 1997 when the Research and Training Institute of the Public Works Department, Malaysia (IKRAM) was privatised in and became known as Kumpulan Ikram Sdn Bhd (KISB). KISB inherited Ikram Park and IKRAM’s distinctive features and strengths. Ikram College was established in the following year and made the focus of KISB’s tertiary education activities to nurture the leaders of tomorrow. The opening of Ikram College was officiated by the Malaysian Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in 1999. By year 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. iCT was upgraded to a University College status with a new name; Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC) in 2003 with the Malaysian Prime Minister, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, officiated its opening. On February 2012, IKRAM Education Sdn. Bhd. was invited by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education to apply for the establishment of a private university to be known as the Infrastructure University of Kuala Lumpur. KLIUC was upgraded to a full-fledged University in 2013 and officially known as the Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL) today.
