Ealier known as the Twintech Institute of Technology, the institution strengthened its stature when they joined forces with Land and General Berhad; a renowned property conglomerate and became L&G – Twintech Institute of Technology. In 2003, Twintech was invited by the Minister of Education Malaysia to upgrade to full University College status.
Presently, TWINTECH International University College of Technology is under the stewardship of Prof. Dr. Tengku Abdul Aziz as Vice Chancellor. A stalwart of the Malaysian education sector, Prof. Dr. Tengku Abdul Aziz brings a wealth of experience to TWINTECH from past positions within the Ministry of Education and several reputable tertiary level institutions in Malaysia.
