About the College
ORT Braude College (OBC) was established in Karmiel with the goal of developing an academic center that would teach the different engineering fields and simultaneously work in cooperation with industry.
The College’s geographic location is a direct response to national and regional needs: it serves as an academic, technological and scientific center for the Galilee, increases the accessibility to higher education in the north of the country and contributes to the range and enrichment of Karmiel’s educational system.
The College is an integral partner in the Galilee’s development and promotion of the region’s hi--tech industries. The College’s goal—to broaden the accessibility of higher education— is guided by several principles:
- To maintain high academic standards
- To accept students from diverse backgrounds

- To establish and operate state-of-the-art laboratories and other facilities on campus
- To provide students with a personal and friendly learning and living environment
