About the University of Technology Sydney and Scholarship
An Act to create an Institute of Technology was approved by the NSW Parliament in 1940, and the New South Wales Institute of Technology (NSWIT) was founded in 1964 as a result. The NSW Institute of Business Studies and the NSW Institute of Technology merged in 1968. The first law school in New South Wales outside of universities was founded by NSWIT in 1976. In 1985, the Haymarket campus made its formal debut.
The NSWIT was given university status on October 8, 1987, and the University of Technology, Sydney, Act was then passed. On January 26, 1988, it was reorganized as the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), and the School of Design of the old Sydney College of the Arts was also included. The Kuring-gai College of Advanced Education (KCAE) and the Institute of Technical and Adult Teacher Education (ITATE) of the Sydney College of Advanced Education were combined to become UTS in 1989 under the University of Technology, Sydney, Act 1989 (NSW). In 1991, 25 schools and nine faculties made up the academic framework.
