The College of Applied Professions was established as part of the University’s strategy to contribute to the provision of vocational education and training opportunities. The goal of this type of education was implemented in order to meet the evolving demands of technological development in work and life, fill gaps in the Palestinian labor market, and provide the markets of neighboring Arab countries with qualified and professional human resources. The University boasts specialized facilities and laboratories, and includes non-curricular activities, all of which contribute to providing the academic and training needs necessary to prepare students for a successful working life.

The College provides a number of programs designed to deliver excellence in education and training and to keep abreast of the latest academic and technological developments in both local and international labor markets. Our programs adapt to suit the abilities, desires, tendencies and skills, required to support students to shape a better future for a professional and decent life. The distinguished academic atmosphere and PAU’s desire for collaboration assists the College in furthering partnerships with local, regional and international institutions.

As the College continues to grow, new programs and specializations are added to meet this need. New programs are modeled on the excellence of graduates who have demonstrated their abilities in all fields, both internally and externally. The College offers diplomas in the areas of Information Technology, Office Management and Automation, Technical Accounting, Marketing and Product Management and Community-Based Rehabilitation.
