The European Centre of Technology (ECT) has been running training courses since 1975 and has a wealth of experience providing Engineering, Management, Finance and Computing workshops.

The professional training courses are organised in collaboration with leading European and International Universities.

Participants benefit from practical and theoretical knowledge on a wide range of topics, taught by University professors and leading experts in their field, with more than 30 years of theoretical and practical experience.

The ECT is an Independent Professional Body and trains over 5000 individuals a year in more than 300 training courses at 21 universities across Europe and worldwide.


The internationally recognised Galileo Master Certificate (GMC) is awarded to successful course participants, as important evidence of the theoretical and practical skills required of professionals and quality practitioners in the industry. It provides a clear gateway to a career in Engineering, Management, Finance and Computing.

The teaching, which leads to the GMC, is based on the European Project EMTEU.

Previous participants of our courses include representatives from Mitsubishi, Siemens, British Army, Solar Power Scotland, Nestle, Coca Cola, and NATO amongst others.

The list of some of the participants who have been awarded the GMC can be viewed here
