Technical College Reykjavik was founded in 2008, but its history goes back to the 19th century. Technical College Reykjavík consists of 8 schools and the Technical Academy, offering around 50 study programmes and 800 courses each semester. Each school has its own headmaster as well as educational independence.
The majority of our programmes emphasize vocational training for the skilled trades. Our students also have the option of graduating with a matriculation examination which many choose to complete in parallel with their vocational training. The many specialized fields we offer training in giving students certification in their chosen trade and multiple options after graduation, both for employment and further studies at the university level.
