Electrical Engineering – The Gateway to the High Tech Industry
The Faculty of Electrical & Computer Engineering is involved in a wide range of fields, encompassing high-tech, mainly electronics, computers, signal processing and communications. Faculty graduates receive theoretical and practical training in all subjects related to electrical engineering – from the physical structure of the basic electronic devices, through the required algorithms and their implementation in hardware and software, to an overview of the whole system – Whether these are communication systems, control, computers, or software.
Modern electrical engineering encompasses hardware and software systems based on electronic, optical, biological and other devices, and touches applications in all areas of life, such as medicine, art and education, as well as commercial and military applications. The fields of electrical engineering and computers are changing and developing rapidly. In order to enable the ability to integrate and keep up with the expected changes, the faculty provides a broad and thorough scientific background, and maintains a high level of students and academic standards. Through these high standards, the graduates can deal with current engineering problems but also to respond to future challenges. As a result, faculty graduates hold leading positions in the Israeli high-tech industry.
