The Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL; Malay: Universiti Infrastruktur Kuala Lumpur), formerly known as Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC), is a university in Kajang, Selangor, Malaysia. It is the first infrastructure university in Malaysia. The university was established in 1998 following the privatisation of the Research and Training Institute of Public Works Department of Malaysia (IKRAM).

The university is a subsidiary of Protasco Berhad, a company listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia. The President and Vice-Chancellor of IUKL is Professor Dr. Ir. Roslan Zainal Abidin.


The initiation of IUKL began in 1997 when the Research and Training Institute of the Public Works Department, Malaysia (IKRAM) was privatised in and became known as Kumpulan Ikram Sdn Bhd (KISB). KISB inherited Ikram Park and IKRAM’s distinctive features and strengths. Ikram College was established in the following year and made the focus of KISB’s tertiary education activities to nurture the leaders of tomorrow. The opening of Ikram College was officiated by the Malaysian Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in 1999. By year 2001, Ikram College had its name changed to Ikram College of Technology (iCT) to further strengthen its niche in the provision of technology and infrastructure based programmes. iCT was upgraded to a University College status with a new name; Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC) in 2003 with the Malaysian Prime Minister, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, officiated its opening. On February 2012, IKRAM Education Sdn. Bhd. was invited by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education to apply for the establishment of a private university to be known as the Infrastructure University of Kuala Lumpur. KLIUC was upgraded to a full-fledged University in 2013 and officially known as the Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL) today.


IUKL's 100-acre (0.40 km2) campus is nestled in the vicinity of Kajang and Serdang, which is located between the capital Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, the administrative city of Malaysia. It is within a 35-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur city centre, 40-minutes from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and 20-minutes away from Cyberjaya, the country’s intelligent city. The campus is accessible via the North-South Highway (or Seremban Highway).
