ORT Hermelin Academic College of Engineering and Technology (OHC)

ORT Hermelin Academic College of Engineering and Technology (www.hermelin.ac.il) was established in 2009 by the ORT Israel Network and Friends of the College in Israel and abroad. This is the second academic college established by ORT Israel after ORT Braude College in Carmiel.
The college campus, which is modern and attractive, is located in the northern sector of Netanya's Sapir Business and Technology Park.

ORT Hermelin College was established for the purpose of developing a unique academic center for engineering and technology that focuses on training excellent engineers with original thinking who will contribute to the Israeli industry and society in future. The college confers Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degrees in the fields of Medical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.

The academic activity in the college seeks to render engineering studies accessible to a variety of populations in the Israeli society by stressing academic excellence and maximizing individual capabilities. The vision for our educational programs is to provide a rich interdisciplinary learning environment, which focuses on training engineers who will obtain the necessary skills and competencies to become professional engineers, who face successfully the complexity of modern professional challenges, and will contribute to the Israeli local High-Tec, Mechanics, Med-Tec and Electrical industry.

We aim to enable our graduates to acquire a high standard of academic education by means of first-rate lecturers and researchers. The top lecturers and researchers teach the courses, which are innovative and tailored to industrial requirements, from leading research institutes in Israel and abroad. In addition, a great deal of thought has been invested in planning and setting-up laboratories that reflect the technological progress in the fields studied at the college in order to ensure that the students enjoy the experience of studying in the most advanced and cutting-edge environments.

We believe that in order to become a leading Engineering & Technological college the process of integrating an international, intercultural, or global dimension will contribute to promote best professional academic practices and research for academic staff and students.
