Universiti Teknologi Malaysia as a research university plays an important role in the discovery and development of knowledge, technology, and innovation for the benefit and prosperity of society, addressing national and global challenges, adapting to the 4th Industrial Revolution, and finally facing future technology in 2025.

We believe university research and innovation cannot endure, much less thrive in the current status quo. Our responsibility as researchers to address complex societal problems and improve the socioeconomic status of our Nation compels us to rethink our commitment, efort, and strategies in research and innovation. To be ready and to take further steps to command all the challenges and responsibilities, the UTM Research and Innovation Blueprint 2025 was successfully designed and developed.

Universiti Teknologi Malaysia was is constantly working to create a higher education environment, producing a specialised knowledge centre and people who are competent, holistic, balanced, and possess an acute entrepreneurial mind.
