The Department of Marine Technology at UTM was established in January 1999. However, Marine Technology Courses has been established much earlier in 1980 when two experts, Prof. J.B. Caldwell from University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Prof. Akhihiro Ogawa from Japan Ship Research Institute, submitted a report to the University authorities proposing the establishment of both the Diploma and Bachelor degree courses in Marine Technology. Until December 1998 the courses were run by the Marine Technology Panel under the Department of Fluids and Thermodynamics, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

Presently the Department is offering Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering (Marine Technology), Master by Research and by taught course, and PhD in Marine Technology field. The courses cover the fields of naval architecture, marine engineering, offshore engineering, ship production, marine transportation, marine management, and economics.

The courses are now run by the Department of Marine Technology consisting of 15 academic staff. Besides overseeing the development of the courses, the Department organises themselves into several research interest groups. The Department has also been active in organising seminars, workshops, conducting research and consultancies in the areas of design and construction of marine vehicles and structures. The Department not only derives its strength from its coherent multi-disciplinary members but also receives strong support from other engineering and non-engineering disciplines within the university.
