The department is oriented to train engineers in the field of mechanical and systems engineering for high tech industry. The needs for the accelerated development in this field require manpower with a practical applied orientation. The studies in this field integrate a high level of theoretical study with practical experience in applications in the following processes: planning and strength analysis, preparation of production and product design from different materials all using computer systems with advanced software.
All theoretical studies are applied in advanced laboratories using computerized industrial systems. The practical experience acquired in labs prepares graduates for immediate integration into a work environment. In addition to studies in mechanical and systems engineering, course work includes the fields of management, economics, safety, quality control, and industrial engineering.
Structure of the B.Sc. program
The program proceeds in 3 stages:
- 4 Basic Science Subjects - mathematics, physics, chemistry and computers
- Basic Subjects in Engineering - Including a variety of courses in mechanical and electronics engineering such as: mechanics (static and dynamic), material strength, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, control systems, electricity and electronics.
- Specialization Subjects - Including structural design, fluid mechanics and heat transfer, computer aided design and mechatronics
As in all departments at Afeka College each student is required to initiate, plan and implement a project connected to his/her program of studies. In mechanical and systems engineering the student chooses an industry-related project after investigating existing needs.
- Solid Mechanics
- Energy and Fluid Mechanics
- Mechatronics Systems and Robotics
- Automotive Systems
- Materials Science
Graduates of the B.Sc. program in mechanical and systems engineering will be accepted for graduate studies at universities.
