Technological University, Thanlyin (Burmese: နည်းပညာ တက္ကသိုလ် (သန်လျင်), pronounced: [nípjɪ̀ɴɲà tɛʔkəθò (θàɴljɪ̀ɴ)]) is a technological university, located in Thanlyin, Yangon Division, Myanmar. The Ministry of Science and Technology run university offers bachelor's degree programs in Engineering and Architecture and master's degree programs in Engineering.[3]

History[edit]

The university's origins trace to the Industrial Training Center (1), founded in March 1993. In November 1995, it became a Government Technological Institute (GTI), offering two-year diplomas on vocational studies. In October 1999, the school was "upgraded" to a Government Technological College (GTC), offering three-year Bachelor of Technology (BTech) programs, and again in January 2007 to the Technological University level, offering bachelor's degree programs in Engineering and Architecture and master's degree programs in Engineering.[1]

It is part of a number of formerly two-year schools that have been promoted to university level in recent years. The military government, which repeatedly closed down schools and universities in the 1990s, has pursued a policy of dispersing students away from major city centers.[4] The university's 125 hectare (310-acre) campus is outside Thanlyin, and actually closer to a smaller town of Kyauktan Township.

In 2007, 461 students graduated with Bachelor of Engineering (BE) or Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) degrees.[5]

Programs[edit]

The university offers four-year Bachelor of Technology (BTech), two-year BE and BArch and two-year ME programs. Students are accepted to TU, Thanlyin's undergraduate programs based on their scores from the annual university entrance examinations.
