Leeds College of Technology (formerly Kitson College) was a further education college in Leeds, in West Yorkshire, England. With a strong technical bias, the College supported the computing, engineering, social care and transport industries. In addition, the College was a national centre for print training and offered ESOL.

Originally founded in 1824 as part of the Leeds Mechanics' Institute, in 1868 the College became the Leeds Institute of Science, Art and Literature, then The Branch College of Engineering and Science, then renamed Kitson College in 1967 and then Leeds College of Technology.
