Information for new students

ECE Women Community

Welcome to graduate studies – Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering!

We have compiled useful information for your degree.

    1. Opening an email from the Technion: Technion email is automatically opened for all applicants who do not have an active email. The Computer and Information Systems department sends a separate notification on the subject shortly after receiving the acceptance letter. The email remains the same for students who studied for a bachelor’s degree at the Technion and have a campus email. Password and email can be recovered through the computer accounts website.
    2. Regulating account details for tuition – go to the school’s website and follow the instructions: Instructions for Regulating Tuition | Graduate School (

    Only after completing all the actions will you appear as an active student, and it will be possible to process requests to register for subjects, update the scholarships and view the grade sheet.

  • In the acceptance letter and the personal printout, the name of your temporary/final supervisor appears. If you are on a research path, this is a temporary supervisor for you until you find the supervisor for the thesis. If you are on track without a thesis, this supervisor will accompany you, and you can consult with him about the curriculum. He will approve it and other requests during the degree. There is no obligation to submit a research topic with the temporary supervisor, and as soon as you find a thesis supervisor, he will be your permanent supervisor..

  • A graduate school student must pass an exam in extended English during the first semester of his studies. A student who fails or does not take the exam in the first semester of his studies must participate in the second semester of the preparatory course and pass the exam. If he does not complete the requirement by this time, he will be transferred to an “incorrect” academic status.

    In the third semester, he/she will be given another opportunity to complete the requirement. If the student fails at this time, his training will be terminated.

    The Department of Humanistic Studies and Arts is responsible for learning languages ​​at the Technion. Registration for the exam in English is the student’s responsibility in the first semester of his studies. For any request related to an English exam, please contact them directly on the Humanistic Studies Unit website. Exam dates, sample exams, and exam registration are listed there.
