Summary

Since 1995, when the College of Arts, Science, and Technology (CAST) became the University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech), it has been working to integrate the best features of CAST's polytechnic tradition with the academic and research culture necessary in a university. Central to CAST's success has been its partnerships with business and industry. UTech is in the process of refining and strengthening the Program Advisory Committee system, the workplace training component of its undergraduate programs, its linkages with other training institutions (both technical and vocational education and training and tertiary) and like-minded external institutions. To these existing institutions, UTech is adding the Jamaica Teaching Company Scheme and a Technology Innovation Center, a business incubator for Jamaica. As the UTech undergoes this cultural transition, it is faced with myriad challenges, such as gaining the trust of industry, assisting staff inherited from CAST in making the cultural leap to UTech, creating the kind of environment in which people want to perform outstandingly, and helping students caught in the transition gain rather than lose in the process.
