AECOM's people have outstanding technical expertise - at AECOM, it's called the TechEx Factor.

This expertise sees every discipline, every insight and every geography working together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.  

"When we connect smart people who love what they do in a collaborative culture that celebrates innovation and impact, we exponentially enhance our capabilities. That’s the TechEx Factor we promise our clients. We bring our connected expertise in all that we do for our clients today, while constantly striving for even greater impact tomorrow," says AECOM.

A company powered by technical excellence

Technical excellence is AECOM's constant, powering what the company does and how it does it. 

It’s there in the way AECOM prioritizes continuous learning and professional development for its people through AECOM University and its Global Technical Academies. And it’s there in the way AECOM collaborates across disciplines and geographies via its thriving Technical Practice Network - the entry point to a world of technical experts, knowledge, and training. 

"We've built a culture of continuous learning, innovation, and bold ambition," says AECOM President, Lara Poloni.
