On 15 September 1988, the name “Rajamangala Institute of Technology” (RIT) was awarded by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX). On 8 January 2005, the old Technical and Vocational Education Act (1975) was superseded by the Rajamangala University of Technology Act, which restructured all RIT campuses into 9 groups. RMUTT is one of the nine groups.
