History of IUKL
The Research and Training Institute of the Public Works Department, Malaysia (IKRAM) was privatized and known as Kumpulan Ikram Sdn Bhd (KISB). KISB inherited Ikram Park and IKRAM's distinctive features and strengths.
Ikram College was established and made the focus of KISB's tertiary education activities.
Ikram College changed its name to Ikram College of Technology (iCT) to further strengthen its niche in the provision of technology and infrastructure based programmes.
On 13 September 2003, iCT was upgraded to a University College status and known as KUALA LUMPUR INFRASTRUCTURE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE (KLIUC).
KLIUC was upgraded to a full-fledged University and is now known as Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur.
