UTM Press was formed on 23 September 1986, as an outcome of 2 workshops Problems and Ways to Upgrade Academic Writing and Professional Translation, held in UTM on 2 December 1985. During its early years, UTM Press was known as Unit Penerbitan Akademik and was administered under the Academic Secretariat. In April 1988, it was brought under the Development Secretariat, and not long after, on 1 October 1990, the unit came directly under the jurisdiction of the Canceler. Unit Penerbitan Akademik soon became known as Penerbit UTM in 1994. UTM Press is a department involved with academic publication and is administered under the auspices of the Deputy Vice–Chancellor (Research and Innovation).

UTM Press, today, is led by a Director, and assisted by a team of professional and support staff. UTM Press acts as the secretariat to the UTM Academic Publication Committee, chaired by the Deputy Vice–Chancellor (Research and Inovation). Two panels, the Book Panel and the Journal Panel, support the UTM Press. While the UTM Academic Publication Committee’s function is to draw up the overall publication policies, the Book and Journal Panels have their specific functions. The Book Panel is responsible for developing and upgrading the accumulation of manuscripts, acknowledging acceptance of topics, and approving payments of royalties and fees; while the Jurnal Teknologi Panel is responsible for deciding the suitability of manuscripts in respect of their meeting the content and academic criteria, and to propose to the UTM Academic Publication Committee for approval.
