The Katholieke Hogeschool Brugge-Oostende (Catholic College Bruges-Ostend) is a college for higher education in Belgium which was founded in the 1990s. It is the result of a merger between two colleges from Ostend and three colleges from Bruges.

In Ostend, there are curricula for bachelors and masters in engineering. The professional bachelors are on avionics, chemistry, electronics, ICT and mechanics. The master programmes are on civil engineering, mechanics, electronics and ICT.
