Technological University, Thanlyin (Burmese: နည်းပညာ တက္ကသိုလ် (သန်လျင်), pronounced [nípjɪ̀ɰ̃ɲà tɛʔkəθò (θàɰ̃ljɪ̀ɰ̃)]) is a technological university, located in Thanlyin, Yangon Division, Myanmar. The Ministry of Education run university offers bachelor's degree programs in Engineering and Architecture and master's degree programs in Engineering and Architecture.[5]

It is the second earliest university in Myanmar which has been recognized as an associate member of ASEAN University Network[4] , and the first ever technological university which has also been certified AUN-QA (ASEAN University Network Quality Assurance) in 2017. And, it will soon be a core member of AUN. In addition, it is also a member of ATU-Net (Asia Technological University Network)[3] . Then, most of its engineering majors are fully accredited or provisionally accredited by Engineering Education Accreditation Committee. Besides, it has obtained ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2015 certifications from BUREAU VERITAS established in 1828.

Ranking of TTU


The university's origins trace to the Industrial Training Center (1), founded in March 1993. In November 1995, it became a Government Technological Institute (GTI), offering two-year diplomas on vocational studies. In October 1999, the school was "upgraded" to a Government Technological College (GTC), offering three-year Bachelor of Technology (BTech) programs, and again in January 2007 to the Technological University level, offering bachelor's degree programs in Engineering and Architecture and master's degree programs in Engineering.[1]

It is part of a number of formerly two-year schools that have been promoted to university level in recent years. The military government, which repeatedly closed down schools and universities in the 1990s, has pursued a policy of dispersing students away from major city centers.[6] The university's 125 hectare (310-acre) campus is outside Thanlyin, and actually closer to a smaller town of Kyauktan Township.

In 2007, 461 students graduated with Bachelor of Engineering (BE) or Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) degrees.[7]


The university offered four-year Bachelor of Technology (BTech), two-year BE and BArch and two-year ME programs. Students are accepted to TU, Thanlyin's undergraduate programs based on their scores from the annual university entrance examinations. Since 2013, the university offers six-year Bachelor of Engineering and Bachelor of Arch. The students who qualify the entry requirement can apply to Technological University (Thanlyin) from any region of Myanmar. In 2019, more than 1000 final year students will graduate and Technological University (Thanlyin) will accept 450 new intake.
