TEC - Technical Education Copenhagen is a large Vocational Training College with a dedicated focus on future challenges and demands from our students and the labour market. Our students are the focal point of attention, which is reflected in our goals, values and strategies.

Who we are

TEC has a history of more than 145 years. The school is a dynamic merger of six institutions, the first merger took place in 1999. Today we are located at several campuses in Greater Copenhagen and offer a wide scale of educational programmes, accredited by the Danish Ministry of Education.

TEC is the second largest Vocational Training College in Denmark. Located in Copenhagen on 7 campuses with 4.589 full-time students in 2019 and approximately 700 employees.

International Policy

TEC is a multicultural Vocational Training College with close ties to a labour market under a growing Globalization. The increasing trend towards internationalization increases the skill needs for innovation, inter-cultural competencies and a high level of professional specialization. We aim at strengthening the European dimension in our educational programmes by:

  • Creating transparency and mutual recognition of our programmes
  • Making sure that our students are well prepared for a complex labour market and receive the best possible education.

TEC therefore supports students and staff in their development of intercultural skills and outlooks.

In order to be technically, pedagogically and organizationally updated, TEC as an institution will seek out knowledge and experiences outside of Denmark. This is done through TEC's participation in transnational networks, projects and expert fora and by students and staff participating in various types of mobilities, including the provision of training periods abroad.
