Carnegie College (formerly Lauder College) is a further education college based in Halbeath, Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. It was established in 1899, with financial support from George Lauder. In 2007, it was renamed Carnegie College in honour of Andrew Carnegie, the steel magnate and philanthropist born in Dunfermline. It has around 11,000 students every year and offers over 350 programs at various levels, from introductory and national qualifications to higher national standards and degrees, delivered through a collegiate model of six schools.

The college is one of West Fife's largest employers and contributors to the local economy, employing almost 600 people with an annual turnover of £22 million. It is amongst the most financially independent colleges in Scotland, with just 45% of its funding coming from the Scottish Funding Council. Carnegie College is a statutory corporation and registered charity under Scottish law and in 2007-08 had a gross income of £23,991,000.
