At the root of all technological innovation are people. In a world marked by accelerated technological progress that has a profound effect on all aspects of life – the engineer is the true force behind the success of Israel’s high-tech industry. In order for the country to maintain its international status, grow its economy and increase exports, we need excellent engineers that will continue to develop life-changing and life-saving technologies. In addition to profound scientific and engineering knowledge and engineering skills, new graduates integrating into the workforce are required to demonstrate a variety of personal skills — such as effective communication, critical thinking, creativity and multidisciplinary teamwork.
Over the past six years we have been working to strengthen Afeka’s unique approach to engineering education. We initiated many changes and established platforms for encouraging and supporting them, all driven by one common goal – to make sure that our graduates possess the knowledge, values and skills they need to become successful engineers in the job market and contribute to society as a whole.Read more
