Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) Main Campus in Skudai, Johor was opened in 1984 after shifting from Jalan Semarak (Gurney Road), Kuala Lumpur. It is one of the early public universities set up by the government to produce graduates mainly for the engineering-based industries. It started of as a Technical Institute, Technical College, National Technological Institute and finally gaining its university status in 1970s.

The courses offered in Civil, Electrical & Mechanical Engineering, Robotic, Natural Sciences, Survey, Remote Sensing, Architecture, Management and other Physical Sciences were well received by the people. So far, it has produced thousands of graduates filling the posts in the government and private sectors all over the country and some in the neighbouring countries.

The main campus in Skudai is beautified with the presence of a Tropical Garden located about 50 meters from the campus main entrance. Tropical trees and plants were planted and the presence of a small river which was turned into a man-made lake has made the garden one of the attraction for recreation activities. The photographs below explain the facts.
