The Masters Degree (M.Sc.)
The M.Sc. curriculum in electrical engineering and electronics (no thesis must be submitted) in the Faculty strives to achieve several goals:
The utilization of the abilities and resources at HIT, which include: many years of experience in Bachelor studies; an academic staff experienced in teaching and research and having close relationships with leading hi-tech firms in areas essential to economic progress and national security in Israel.
Technological progress and the proliferation of knowledge in the recent decades have rendered the title "Engineer" (B.Sc.) an intermediate level, necessitating Masters Studies as well. Thus, HIT has make efforts to develop quality programs for the training of R&D engineers in electrical engineering, electronics and communications.
The M.Sc. study program in electrical engineering and electronics is based on the way in which this age of globalization has transformed the arena of technological competition of the Israeli hi-tech industries into an international one. Israeli industries must face off against the leading companies in the world and, therefore, Israeli engineers must increase their experience, knowledge and abilities.
Today, the promotion of the modern engineer is based on ability and knowledge. In order to avoid lagging behind, an engineer must continue developing, making progress and learning all he/she can.
Local industry, which operates in a relatively small local market, has the advantage of focusing on specific topics, where it has proven abilities and advanced developments.
The Israeli hi-tech industry is a global superpower in several fields: electrical engineering, electronics and communication, which include, for example: Electro-optics (El-Op), military and civilian communication systems (Elisra and Tadiran), communication networks (ECI), standard and designated processors (Intel, Motorola Semiconductors, Tower), printing and printing preparation (Creo/Saitex, Kodak/Indigo, HP), command systems, control and aeronautics (IAI, Elbit Maarachot, Orcbotech) and various medical systems (ESC, Cadent, Givens).
Maintaining the quality advantage in these areas requires rapid progress in the training of R&D engineers with solid backgrounds and creativity. HIT's M.Sc. studies in Electrical and Electronics Engineering focus precisely on that.
