The Technocrat Education Institute, which has been appointed as a pilot model for the national level Double System Education Program (link and match), was established on 19 February 1986 using the name “Technocrat Course and Guidance” with the permission of the Ministry of Education and Culture (Depdiknas) of Lampung Province. This institution was founded by Nasrullah Yusuf with a capital of a used Bajaj motorcycle which was sold for IDR 1,600,000. At the beginning of its establishment, it only used one building that was rented for Rp. 1,000,000 per year, with equipment designed by themselves, namely two chalkboards, 50 wooden chairs, one administrative desk, and a manual typewriter.
The programs that were held at the beginning of its establishment were still limited to courses in English, Accounting, Tutoring, and Manual Typing. The learning community when it was first opened in March 1986 consisted of 32 residents learning English (2 classes), 22 residents studying Accounting, and 8 residents learning manual typing. In May 1986 Tutoring began with 3 participants. There were only two teaching staff at that time, namely Nasrullah Yusuf himself who taught English, Accounting, Typing, Tutoring and concurrently administration, and Mrs. Hernaini Nasrul teaches English and Manual Typing.
In 1995 the Technocrat Course and Guidance changed its name in the context of Indonesianization to become a Technocrat Educational Institution. This institution oversees two departments, namely the Department of Courses and Guidance, and the Department of Business and Management Education Institutions.
The Institute for Business and Management Education strives to continuously develop its educational programs. In 1996, the One-Year Technocrat Education Program began its learning process. Until now, the One-Year Technocrats Education Program has organized the One-Year Work Ready Education Program ECOMTEC (english computer technology information), computer accounting, computer graphic design, computer secretary, and English.
From the rapid developments and achievements that have been achieved by the Technocrat Education Institute, this Institute is trying to increase its participation in the intellectual life of the nation, one of the efforts made is to establish a Technocrat College in 2000. This college consists of three institutions, namely the College of Informatics and Computer Management (STMIK) Technocrats, Academy of Informatics and Computer Management (AMIK) Technocrats and College of Foreign Languages (STBA) Technocrats.
The College of Informatics and Computer Management (STMIK) Technocrats has received an operational permit and legal entity status on February 8, 2001 and has registered status at the Directorate General of Higher Education, Ministry of National Education with Number; 13/D/O/2001. STMIK Teknokrat has two undergraduate study programs, namely Informatics Engineering (IT) and Information Systems (IS).

In order to increase the contribution of the Technocrat Education Foundation in improving the quality of education in Indonesia, in 2015 the Technocrat Education Foundation took the initiative to increase the institutional capacity of the three higher education institutions (STMIK AMIK and STBA Teknokrat). In 2015 the Technocrat Education Foundation submitted a proposal to the Directorate General of Higher Education to combine the three higher education institutions that were organized and transformed into a university. The efforts and hard work of the Technocrat Education Foundation finally paid off with the approval of the merger of STMIK-AMIK-STBA Teknocrats to become a University under the name of Universitas Teknocrats Indonesia with Decree Number 494/KPT/I/2017 which came into force on 18 September 2017. The Indonesian Technocrat University held 3 faculties include the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, the Faculty of Economics and Business and the Faculty of Literature and Educational Sciences.
