UCTC UMT officially established on 15 December 2013 The PIJI acts as the secretariat for the INSTITUTION to coordinate the implementation and reporting of the programme by establishing a special committee to coordinate and discuss local community issues especially the East Coast Economic region Development (East Coast Economic Region, ECER).

UCTC was established to transform the university’s traditions which was previously focused on teaching and research to provide services for the community. The Centre will act as a place for student relationship and faculty with the local community. In this way, IPTA can use expertise to overcome the issues of the local community, offering opportunities for research to faculty members and to offer co-curricular activities and working experience to university students.
