UTT’s primary focus is on the development of Trinidad and Tobago. With its genesis in the Trinidad and Tobago Institute of Technology (TTIT), UTT initially focused on programmes in engineering and technology.
Today's programmes go far beyond engineering and technology to a fuller spectrum of educational opportunities where experiential learning programmes are incorporated into the traditional learning environment. Alternative avenues are also provided for persons to enter, exit and re-enter tertiary education.
The Career Development Unit (CDU) is responsible for the preparation of students for the working environment and the placement of students where they can obtain valuable work experience. CDU staff is available to offer students any assistance with career decisions, since career guidance encourages people to reflect on their ambitions, interests, qualifications and abilities. It further helps them to understand the labour market and education systems and to relate this to what they know about themselves.
The SCS provides a comprehensive range of professional services within its capabilities that are confidential, accessible, student-focused and collaborative. The SCS assists individuals, groups of students and the organization to better manage the "issues of everyday living" that negatively impact on student psycho-social well-being and academic success.
The Student Development Unit (SDU) provides assistance to students requesting on and off-campus accommodation, by providing tips for selecting appropriate accommodation; and a listing of rental accommodation close to each of the campuses, based on responses to media advertisements.
At the Induction Ceremony and Orientation Fair the Chapter Guilds of the respective campuses will be on display to provide you with more information as it pertains to campus life and activities.

Subsequently, UTT was re-registered by ACTT for a further three years, June 10, 2009 - June 9, 2012.
