Institute of Technology

Institute of Technology

Barking & Dagenham College has partnered with CU London, along with TfL, Huawei and Saint Gobain, to launch the Institute of Technology, which will offer technical skills development via advanced and higher-level courses and higher apprenticeships.

New for 2020

Barking & Dagenham College is one of just 12 colleges and universities nationally to have secured government funding to open an Institute of Technology (IoT), a brand new, purpose-built facility for advanced technologies.

It has been designed to deliver advanced and higher-level specialist training in emerging occupations – so students can boost their skills and prepare for the jobs of the future. Technology is moving fast – so fast that your dream job might not even exist yet!

Careers in STEM industries

There’s a growing demand for skilled technical workers for jobs within the engineering, technology and science industries. The IoT aims to bridge the skills gap and train the workforce of the future by providing specialisms in the following sectors – all of which are critical to the London and UK economy:

  • Construction & Infrastructure Technologies
  • Advanced Engineering & Robotics
  • Creative Digital (Animation & Games Design, 3D Design, Graphic Design)
  • IT

Designed with key partners

The IoT at Barking & Dagenham College has been designed with key employers, student client groups and local stakeholders, to help ensure it successfully meets the skills requirements and economic opportunities of the future.

STEM degrees at CU London

We offer the following degrees which would be suitable for progression from Barking & Dagenham College. 

We are proud to support this innovative and much needed new development by bringing Coventry University degree programmes in these high demand STEM skills.

Barking & Dagenham College deserve every success with this Institute of Technology, and it’s exciting to see such high-quality provision becoming the norm in the Borough for the benefit of local residents and employers alike.
