TEKmation (PTY) LTD was established in 2002 to provide Engineering Training and Skills Development. It was established and headed by two directors and a staff compilation of just two employees which has exponentially grown over the years. The main focus of the campus centred on the offering of one programme until there was a demand for scarce and growing skills in the industry.

This allowed the institute to expand into a multi-focused college that currently offers a range of technological and academic programmes.
