I

t is a pleasure for me to welcome our new and returning stu-

dents for the 2017/2018 academic year. I assure you that you

have made an excellent choice by selecting Jamaica’s national

University at which to proceed on your lifelong journey of

“Excellence through Knowledge.”

The holistic development of each of our over 13,000 students is

the University’s first priority. We commit to ensuring that all

our students fulfil their intellectual potential in keeping with

international standards of teaching and learning. The emphasis

placed on the welfare of our students is based on the fact that

they constitute the raison d’etre of the institution.

As a new student at the University of Technology, Jamaica

(UTech, Ja.) you have joined a growing world-class learning institution that will prepare you to

function effectively as a global citizen, equipped to contribute to development and to add value to

organizations anywhere in the world. Over 60,000 graduates of the institution CAST/UTech have the

reputation of being industry-ready and are highly regarded in their various fields of endeavour in

Jamaica, the Caribbean region and across the world.

Welcome to your own new journey on an enriching and empowering student-centred experience as

As you commit yourselves to pursuing diligently, your academic and personal development inter-

ests, I encourage you to keep in mind the seven University Core Values of
