BMS Control Systems Training at SBCS in Trinidad and Tobago

SBCS (School of Business and Computer Science) celebrated its 25th Anniversary on February 13, 2012. This date marked a significant milestone for our institution, and the staff and faculty who dedicate themselves to advancing the careers and lives of our valued students. Our journey began as many great journeys do - on a small scale but with the promise of untold potential. Our first building was located at #3 Santa Cruz Old Road in San Juan, before we relocated to Champs Fleurs in September 1990 - and this has been the flag-ship location which has given birth to three other campuses in Port of Spain, San Fernando and Trincity.

Our focus over the years has been to build and maintain a reputation for high quality teaching at the tertiary level. We acknowledge the support of the students who placed their faith and trust in our institution in those early years when we were virtually unknown. Today, some of these first students have joined the institution, albeit in different capacities, as either lecturers or Managers.

Vision: To be the region premier tertiary teaching and learning institute for globally recognized and industry education and training.
