Welcome to Bellingham Technical College (BTC). This past year BTC’s campus has undergone a major facelift with the opening of the new Campus Center and a major grounds upgrade. The new Campus Center adds exceptional learning facilities to our welcoming campus environment. Stop by and visit our campus and see how BTC is reflecting excellence.
BTC is known as a leading educational institution preparing students for careers in over forty fields. Our approach is high-tech, hands-on and student-centered. Located in beautiful northwest Washington, on the shore of north Puget Sound and close to downtown, BTC is a diverse community of students and faculty engaged in the pursuit of learning.
At BTC, you will find exemplary faculty who, along with our dedicated staff, are committed to preparing you for a career in two years. We also have more options than ever before so you can transfer from BTC to earn a baccalaureate degree. BTC is recognized as having relevant, cutting-edge labs with state of the art equipment, so our graduates enter the workforce prepared and have the skills and knowledge to progress up the career ladder. This is a great place to learn!
As testament of our commitment to ensuring students earn their degree or certificate, BTC has identified Student Success as the priority goal of BTC’s Strategic Goals. We have joined the national student completion movement by participating in Achieving the Dream. This project—paired with support from College Spark—illustrates our commitment to achieving four principles toward student completion and success: committed leadership, use of evidence to improve programs and services, broad engagement, and systemic institutional improvement. Our ultimate goal is to have our students graduate with a degree or certificate and a clear pathway to the career of their dreams. Thank you for your interest in Bellingham Technical College and again, welcome to our campus.
