Bachelor Degree (B.Sc.) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering
This program of studies in the Faculty of Sciences meets the demands and needs of training students at the accepted academic level in Israeli and at universities abroad. The program includes extensive specialization in the fields of electricity, electronics and communications, e.g.: high-voltage electricity, electro-optics, image processing, automotive control, robotics, bio-electronics, micro-electronics and communication. These studies combine classical academic methods, such as: lectures, practical exercises, laboratory sessions and projects, with modern approaches that include both independent study and group learning, as well as online studies, the use of the newest and most advanced measurement instruments used in hi-tech companies, and also offers the simulations and optimization processes with which R&D engineers must be proficient.
The First Stage of the curriculum focuses on imparting in-depth knowledge of the sciences, as is customary in all the faculties of engineering in Israel--physics, mathematics and programming. This phase is covered during the first three semesters.
The Second Stage is covered during the next three semesters, when the student is exposed to the basics of the main professions in the fields of electricity, electronics and communication.
Stage Three is covered mainly during the last two semesters and includes the extension and deepening of knowledge in various specializations in the fields of electricity, electronics and communication. During this stage, the students learn the methodologies and problems found in industry. In addition, they acquire the practical and theoretical knowledge necessary to enable them to integrate into various electrical, electronic and communication industries in Israel. This stage of their studies also includes the preparation of an advanced, annual, final project.
The curriculum includes 161.5 academic credit points in scientific and engineering disciplines and in general studies. The regular track is a four-year program, as is the flexible track.
Great importance is assigned to the final project, which carries 6 credit-hours during the last two semesters of the 4th year. While preparing this final project, the students must apply all the knowledge they have acquired in the fields of electricity, electronics and communication.
