UTC was officially founded on 14 July 1964 by Oswaldo Silva Marín and Wílder Tejada Arribasplata, clerks at Universidad Técnica de Cajamarca, known today as Universidad Nacional de Cajamarca (National University of Cajamarca), with the aim of giving the university a place in the local soccer league. Prior to that date, the club had been playing for three months in the local league alongside Club Juventud Victoria as one team, before the official foundation date.
In 1970, UTC wins the local league of the District of Cajamarca.
UTC won the 2012 Copa Perú under manager Rafael Castillo after defeating Alfonso Ugarte in the final. The club won 2–0 at home in Cajamarca and lost 3–2 in Puno, but won due to a better goal difference. With the win, they qualified for the 2013 Torneo Descentralizado, the top flight of Peruvian football; they finished sixth and classified for the second international tournament in their history, the 2014 Copa Sudamericana.
