Originally established in June 2006 as Twintech International University College, we decided that we had to acknowledge our history and notable diversity in ethnicity, culture and language by changing our name to North Borneo University College (“NBUC”).  NBUC was acquired by the Geomatika Group in December 2012 through Borneo Eduexcel Sdn Bhd.
