Belfast Metropolitan College provides a range of services which help both start-up and established companies to maximise potential and support growth.
The College’s close links with industry allow staff to work collaboratively with businesses to stimulate enterprise, drive economic growth and enhance the employability of our learners with a curriculum that is relevant to employers’ needs.
In particular, Belfast Met’s Springvale Campus promotes employability, entrepreneurship and enterprise (e3).
The building provides industry standard facilities including: an animation and digital editing suite, TV and radio production studios, a hospitality training facility and manufacturing and engineering facilities for product innovation. e3 is a model for the innovative use of new and emerging technologies with resources for the testing and demonstration of renewable energies.
The 5000 sq metre building creates a vibrant partnership between the College and businesses across the city and helps to drive economic regeneration and stimulate enterprise.
