The British Water Engineering College (BWEC) delivers premium leadership, management and skills development qualifications and training to professionals working in the water industry.

Our main campus is situated in the iconic Scottish Provident Institution Building, right in the heart of Belfast with convenient access to both sea and airports. However, as most of our students are already employed, the majority of our clients choose to host the training delivery sessions. BWEC tutors travel globally to deliver our world-class programs.

Through a range of qualifications and training programs, the college strives to prepare our students for leadership positions and technical roles within their company, as well as careers in cross-disciplined areas in research, academia and other industries.

Providing quality education that is well-grounded in the fundamental principles of engineering, fostering innovation, and preparing students for leadership positions and successful careers in industry, government and academia.

Enabling professional development opportunities for practicing water industry professionals through continuing education, service, and outreach activities.
