King Edward Technical College is the former name for a school and technical college in Dunedin, New Zealand, which was established as the Dunedin Technical School in 1889 when the Caledonian Society instigated Night Education Classes. It renamed itself the King Edward Technical College after King Edward VII, and new buildings on Stuart Street officially opened in 1914. The first principal of the college was Angus Marshall, BA.
In 1966 the tertiary arm of the college officially adopted the name Otago Polytechnic and eventually moved to a new site. Since 1974 the secondary component has been renamed on a new site Logan Park High School.
The prominent and imposing old King Edward Technical College buildings (King Edward Court) on Stuart Street are now used for a multitude of purposes. The main building has a Category I listing with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust, registration number 4712.
Dunedin association football team Dunedin Technical was formed by alumni of the institution, and was originally known as King Edward Technical College Old Boys.
