Sekolah Menengah Teknik (Cheras) Kuala Lumpur, or "Technical Institute Kuala Lumpur" (TIKL), is located in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur and is arguably the oldest technical school in Malaysia. It is considered to be one the best technical schools in the country.


The early establishment of TIKL can be traced as early in 1926. In 1927, "The Federated Malay State Government Trade School" was created after the Federated Malay States government felt that they had to train skilled workers in technical fields. The first site for the school was located at Jalan Kolam Air and only had 7 staff. In 1946, the school changed its name to "Junior Technical Trade School" with classes of 80 students.
Its name was changed again to "Technical Institute" after the Report of the Education Committee in 1956 (known as 'Penyata Razak') which also suggested that the school transform into a full secondary school which offered its students basic technical skill for the Lower Certificate of Education (LCE) holders. Finally in 1962, the school changed its name to Sekolah Menengah Teknik Kuala Lumpur.
In 1967 TIKL moved out from Jalan Kolam Air to Jalan Tenteram (now known as Jalan Yaacob Latiff), Bandar Tun Razak. Other renowned institutions located along this road are Sekolah Menengah Sains Alam Shah (previously 'Sekolah Alam Shah' which was then moved to Putrajaya and changed its name to Sekolah Sultan Alam Shah') and [ Sekolah Menengah Sains Selangor] .

Notable Tragedies

The student that died only known as Arwah Hishamuddin. He died after the complication from the ceremony by his fellow batch. Six were charged and some were sentenced to the Henry Gurney (Juvenile Correctional School). It was believed that the ceremony started since 1981 but no action was taken from the school administrator which led to the tragedy. Later the tragedy was documented in film by the local media TV3 titled "Tirai Besi".
