The present day University of Technology originates from the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts (the oldest Mechanics' Institute in Australia). In the 1870s the SMSA formed the Workingman's College which was later taken over by the NSW government to form, in 1878, the Sydney Technical College. In 1969, part of the Sydney Technical College became the New South Wales Institute of Technology (NSWIT). It was officially unveiled by Neville Wran. Neville Kenneth Wran AC QC (born 11 October 1926 was the Premier of New South Wales from 1976 until 1986
It was reconstituted as the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), in 1988 under an Act of NSW State Parliament. In 1990 it absorbed the Kuring-gai College of Advanced Education and the Institute of Technical and Adult Teacher Education of the Sydney College of Advanced Education, under the terms of the Higher Education (Amalgamation) Act 1989.
Although its antecedent institutions go back as far as 1893, they took new shapes from the 1960s, creating a new University focused on practice-oriented education with strong links to industry, the professions and the community, and with a growing research reputation and a strong commitment to internationalisation. 
UTS has had three phases in its history. In the first phase, effort was concentrated on embedding an amalgamation of institutions which were culturally and structurally different. This strengthened the research culture and established a more consistent approach to teaching and learning. 
The second phase, beginning in the mid 1990s, saw a strong focus on international student recruitment, combined with an expansion of professional post-graduate programs for domestic students. Greater emphasis on both research and flexible learning also became priorities during this period. 
The third phase began in 2000 with a 10 year strategic vision. This involved concentrating research funding into four major research institutes, upgrading physical infrastructure at the city campus, enhancing teaching and learning, and continuing entrepreneurial activity.
