The organizing of the Invention, Innovation and Design (IID) competition was first mooted by the UiTM main campus in Shah Alam in an effort to promote innovations in all faculties and campuses as feeders for participations at the university level IIDEX (Invention, Innovation and Design Exposition). IID Johor was first organised in compliance with this requirement from the Research Innovation Business Unit (RIBU). The first IID Johor was held in Dewan Sri Temenggong, UiTM Johor in the year 2009 at the UiTM Johor level. In the following 2 years, it was opened to the public at the Southern Zone level. In 2012 and 2013, it gained momentum and was opened at the national level. IID Johor became a brand name linked to UiTM Johor known to many local and international institutions of learning. Beginning 2014, the Innovation Unit, UiTM Johor with great confidence and anticipation, organized IID Johor for the first time at the international level. Again in 2015 the competition was organized at the international level and has been held outside UiTM Johor's campus in Johor Bahru. The strive for excellence has led to IID Johor this year to also be open at the International level and hoping to get more participants.
