The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is a public research university located in Sydney, Australia. Although its origins are said to trace back to the 1870s, the university was founded in its current form in 1988. It is now part of the Australian Technology Network of universities.
The University of Technology Sydney originates from the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts (the oldest continuously running Mechanics' Institute in Australia), which was established in 1833. In the 1870s, the School formed the Workingman's College, which was later taken over by the NSW government to form, in 1882, the Sydney Technical College.
In 1940 the NSW Parliament passes Act to establish an Institute of Technology, which in 1964 lead to the establishment of New South Wales Institute of Technology (NSWIT). In 1968, amalgamation of the NSW Institute of Business Studies and the NSW Institute of Technology took place. In 1976 NSWIT establishes the first law school in NSW outside the university sector. In 1985 the Haymarket Campus is officially opened.
On 8 October 1987 university status is granted to NSWIT, which was followed by the passing of the University of Technology, Sydney, Act 1987. It was reconstituted as the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in 1988, along with the incorporation of the School of Design of the former Sydney College of the Arts. In 1989, the University of Technology, Sydney, Act 1989 (NSW) formed UTS by absorbing 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. An academic Structure of nine faculties and 25 schools was established in 1991.
The University of Technology Sydney is a mix of architectural styles reflecting the different periods in which the buildings and grounds were constructed and renovated.
The UTS Tower building is an example of brutalist architecture with square and block concrete designs. In October 2006, the university's tower building was voted by 23% of the total vote in a poll hosted by The Sydney Morning Herald as the ugliest building in Sydney.
The Haymarket campus (Building 5) combines a modern interior with the remaining exterior of the old markets building, and the recently completed buildings 4 and 6 are designed with an element of high-tech architecture. The Science Faculty Building is the building housing the Faculty of Science and the Graduate School of Health.
The university recently acquired the former Sydney Institute of Technology building that stands opposite to Building 10 (on Jones St) and adjacent to Building 2. This building was named Building 7, but was demolished to make way for an extension of Alumni Green.
UTS provides services through the Blake Library (City Campus) as well as an range of online services on the UTS Library website.
The UTS Academic Board is the principal advisory body to the UTS Council on academic matters.
The Academic Board is concerned with policy development as it relates to the University's academic programs in education, scholarship and research, and community service. It refers to policy recommendations to Council and discusses matters referred to it by Council.
Academic Board plays a key role in the UTS community in providing a forum for the discussion and debate of the academic directions of the University as well as the quality of its academic programs. The Board consists of academic staff members as well as student members elected for a general period of 1–2 years.
