Institut Teknologi Pertama (Pertama Institute of Technology)
Institut Teknologi Pertama (ITP) was established in 1986 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. ITP then moved into a new and integrated campus in Mantin, Negeri Sembilan along with two other Colleges and one University-College.

ITP emerged as the first college in Malaysia to offer Edexcel Higher Education Diploma in 1991, thus pioneering in the higher education of technical and vocational studies in Malaysia. ITP charged ahead further in collaborating its degree programmes with established universities in the United Kingdom such as University of East London (UEL) and Coventry University.
At present, ITP offers franchise programmes from Leeds Beckett University and the University of Bolton, UK.
It is with much pride, that ITP acknowledges its students for their outstanding achievements in Engineering and Architecture projects, which they have been awarded through their participation in local and international competitions with the guidance of its dedicated and top-class academic staff.
Its Mantin Campus also known as the Linton Campus is located 50km away from Kuala Lumpur and is nestled in a well-planned and spaciously landscaped campus that has the capacity to accommodates up to 25,000 students across various faculties.
