About

History

UTT’s primary focus is on the development of Trinidad and Tobago. With its genesis in the Trinidad and Tobago Institute of Technology (TTIT), UTT initially focused on programmes in engineering and technology. 

Education

Today's programmes go far beyond engineering and technology to a fuller spectrum of educational opportunities where experiential learning programmes are incorporated into the traditional learning environment. Alternative avenues are also provided for persons to enter, exit and re-enter tertiary education.

Career

The Career Development Unit (CDU) is responsible for the preparation of students for the working environment and the placement of students where they can obtain valuable work experience. CDU staff is available to offer students any assistance with career decisions, since career guidance encourages people to reflect on their ambitions, interests, qualifications and abilities. It further helps them to understand the labour market and education systems and to relate this to what they know about themselves.
