The University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) dates its beginning from 1958, originally as the Jamaica Institute of Technology. In 1959 the name of the institution was changed to the College of Arts, Science and Technology and it became incorporated in the College of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) Scheme of 1959. This was validated by an Act of Parliament in 1964. In 1986, the CAST Scheme was revised in order to make the College a degree-granting institution, and the College became legally empowered to conduct its affairs under a governing Council and Academic Board.

The institution was formally accorded University status on September 1, 1995 as the University of Technology, Jamaica. The University of Technology, Jamaica Act 27 - 1999, which makes permanent provisions for the establishment of the University of Technology, Jamaica, was approved by Parliament on June 8, 1999 and signed into law by the Governor General on June 29, 1999.

UTECH has academic offerings, with emphasis on flexibility of approach, work-based learning and professional linkages. The Flexibility in UTECH academic offerings is reflected in the various modes of programme delivery, which include full-time and part-time and cooperative work based programmes.

In addition, several programmes are franchised in a number of Community Colleges and most programmes are linked to national and international professional organisations. UTECH has brought hope and a sense of pride to the citizens of Western Jamaica with the advent of the UTECH Western Campus, which has opened its doors at the Trelawny Multipurpose stadium.

On Wednesday, September 7, 2011, UTECH hosted an Opening Ceremony and Information Session at the stadium, which was attended by a large gathering of members of government, civic leaders, educators, students and citizens who came to witness the historic event.
