Prof. Eduard Yakubov, said in his greeting speech that the fact that this conference is being held at HIT for the 4th consecutive year, is making it already a tradition which we intend to keep. "This conference is one of five international conferences that are being held at HIT this month, and these events which are targeted at the industry show, more than anything else, HIT's ability to implement its close ties with the industry, which is one of its strategic goals.
HIT has chosen an innovative approach which qualifies its students and graduates to be integrated in the industry and we keep updating and refreshing our study programs according to the industry's needs and requirements.
"We believe that the future of Israel as a leading technological superpower depends, among other things, on its ability to supply the market with engineers and technical managers who are considered experts in their field".
