Today we celebrate our 5th anniversary. Since the 21st of July 2011 we have been providing training courses in electronics, mechatronics, optics, software, system, tools, mechanics and soft skills. Our portfolio now exists out of over 60 internationally approved courses for post bachelor and academic education. Some of the courses are developed by Philips’ Technical Training Centre.
Already thousands of professionals from all over the world, working in the high-tech industry, participated to extend their knowledge in high-tech. They either follow a course with open enrolment (in the Netherlands) or they are being taught ‘in-company’. Some of our training courses are part of the European Society for Precision Engineering & Nanotechnology. Teams of leading experts, such as Jan van Eijk, Maarten Steinbuch & Chris Velzel, are constantly improving the content to assure the best course programme.
We expect many more participants to come, since nowadays new training courses are still being added. For example we now provide ‘Value Engineering’, our atest course. This new 2-day training is all about launching winning products to the market and/or improving profitability of existing products by adding value in an early stage of the developing process.
This year we expect to educate our 2000th engineer.
