It is one of the National Polytechnics recently elevated to a fully fledged University in Kenya. It was awarded its charter in 2013 by-then president Mwai Kibaki.
TUM can be traced back to the late 1940s when Sir Philip Mitchell, The Aga Khan, Sultan of Zanzibar, and Secretary of State for the colonies, Sir Bernard Reilly started Mombasa Institute of Muslim Education (MIOME). After its inception, MIOME started providing technical education to Muslim students of East Africa. In May 1951, MIOME enrolled its first batch of students to undergo a technical education programme which placed special emphasis on Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Seamanship and Navigation, and Woodwork.
