State-of-the-art industry poses many technological challenges, which require solid and broad theoretical knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the fields of modern engineering. The engineer is required to show capability to plan, to solve technological and engineering problems, to become involved in multi-disciplinary development efforts, as well as learn quickly and stay current.
The department’s curriculum includes scientific courses such as mathematics and statistics, physics, chemistry, and computer programming, together with basic engineering courses, including statics and strength of materials, computer design, production processes, dynamics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer and control theory. Additional subjects include electricity and electronics, economics and marketing, reliability, etc.
The student will specialize in one of the following four fields:
The studies at the department include experience at state-of-the-art laboratories, work on engineering projects and the use of advanced scientific and engineering software. All this experience prepares the student to integrate into the hi-tech industry and enables his continued study toward an advanced degree.
The 4-year program features the following unique characteristics:
