The construction of the new site started in 1988 and amidst the economic crisis which saw the project halted for awhile, was finally completed in 1992. The gradual transfer of UiTM Pahang from Kuantan to Jengka was completed in 1993, thus marking a new era in its history.On the 13 August 1996, the campus was officially declared as another branch of ITM. The new campus was officiated by then Minister of Education Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak. The presence of Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak to officiate the ceremony was of great significance as he had officiated the first temporary campus in Kuantan in 1986 and ITM was indeed the brainchild of his late father Allahyarham Tun Abdul Razak.
