Mandalay Technological University (MTU) (Burmese: မန္တလေး နည်းပညာ တက္ကသိုလ်, pronounced [máɴdəlé nípjɪ̀ɴɲà tɛʔkəθò]; formerly, the Mandalay Institute of Technology (MIT)), located in Patheingyi, Mandalay, is a senior engineering university in Myanmar. The university offers undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programs in several engineering disciplines to engineering students from Upper Myanmar. The university maintains an annual student intake of at least 300.[1]

As the university offers only a few doctoral and postgraduate programs, students have to go to Yangon Technological University or abroad for doctoral and postgraduate programs.



The university was founded as the Mandalay Institute of Technology on 1 October 1991, and became only the second senior engineering university to be founded in the country.[2]


The university's main offerings are six-year bachelor's and two-year master's degree programs. Two-thirds of nearly 7500 students that graduated between 1997 and 2004 received bachelor's degrees, and 7.3% received master's.[3]
