PAO Techniek en Management (PAOTM) is the postgraduate educator for technical professionals who want to further develop themselves in a technical field or improve their leadership qualities. Every year we organize more than 150 courses and many customized in-company trainings. This way we ensure that engineers can continue to grow during their career after completing a higher or university education and strengthen their own market position and that of the organization they work for.

PAOTM is an independent non-profit foundation, originated in the 1960s by the Technical Universities and the Royal Netherlands Society for Engineers (KIVI). Our current board, responsible for strategy and policy, consists of professors and management from Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University ​​of Technology and University of Twente, the professional association KIVI and the trade association NLingenieurs. We act as an independent platform that bundles the latest scientific knowledge and makes it directly accessible to technical professionals.

In addition to universities and industry organizations, PAOTM works closely with leading research institutes and knowledge-intensive companies and governments in order to contribute to the development of our participants into pioneers in their field.

We bundle the latest knowledge and make it available in the form of classroom courses in small groups where applicability in practice plays a central role. Through the interaction between our experienced teachers and enthusiastic participants, we create a valuable environment in which each participant finds enrichment for his or her specific situation. Whether this is for a practical issue that requires a solution or for a complex project involving social challenges.

We believe in lifelong learning and work every day on a high-quality course program in which every technical professional can find a suitable course to progress in practice. With the internationally recognized ISO 9001:2015 standard for our quality management system and registration in the Centraal Register Kort Beroepsonderwijs CRKBO, our participants are assured of excellent service.
