Technological Association Malaysia


Founded in 1946.

The original Association was founded in K.L. as far back as 1932 but it was short-lived. It was revived in 1935 & 1937 in Perak & Selangor respectively and continued to flourish until the Second World War.

Immediately after the war, attempts were made by the former members to resuscitate the association. Eventually, this led to the formation of the Technical Association of Malaysia on 15th April 1946. The name was changed to Technological Association of Malaysia in 1972 to reflect the multi-professional memberships
