Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) is the 14th public university in Malaysia and is located at Mengabang Telipot, Kuala Terengganu.

The unique history of UMT can be traced back to the time when the Fishery and Marine Science Centre was formed at Mengabang Telipot by Universiti Putra Malaysia (then Universiti Pertanian Malaysia) in 1979. Initially, the centre provided training facilities for Fishery and Marine Science students as well as research facilities for academic staffs.

In June 1996, Universiti Putra Malaysia decided to create a branch campus at Mengabang Telipot, following the relocation of the Faculty of Fishery and Marine Science from Serdang to Mengabang Telipot. The branch campus was named Universiti Putra Malaysia Terengganu (UPMT). The name of the faculty was changed to Faculty of Applied Science and Technology. Also formed at the branch campus were the Faculty of Science and Professional Arts and the Matriculation Centre.

On 5 May 1999, UPMT became Kolej Universiti Terengganu (KUT) after an approval was obtained from the Cabinet for a formation of KUT as an associated campus of UPM. Two years later, in May 2001, KUT became a fully autonomous institution.

On 20th June 2001, KUT officially became the 14th public institution of higher learning in Malaysia, and was subsequently renamed as Kolej Universiti Sains dan Teknologi Malaysia (KUSTEM).

On 1 February, 2007, KUSTEM was renamed Universiti Malaysia Terengganu.
