The energy resource crisis, as well as the high cost and the environmental and regulatory implications of energy production, call for proper energy planning and management – as well as the ability to locate and develop alternative technologies and deal with multidisciplinary system-wide challenges. Thus, the field of energy and electric power has become one of the economy’s key fields – a continuing trend that creates the need for experts with engineering knowledge, a broad systemic understanding of the market, and deep familiarity with the energy market’s unique aspects. Alumni of this program will acquire the skills and the broad perspective needed to lead research and development in this field. The non-thesis graduate degree in energy and electric power systems engineering is designed to train experts in those fields, and to place them at the forefront of their application and development. This unique, innovative degree, taught exclusively at Afeka, will provide students with advanced, up-to-date knowledge and a comprehensive, integrative, system-wide perspective that will help them to assume key roles in this field. The research track, which includes the writing of a scientific-engineering research paper (thesis), provides a broad, in-depth, groundbreaking understanding in one of the most sought-after and dynamic research fields today. Alumni can go on to doctoral studies, become academic faculty in this field, and enter various roles within the industry, due to the high demand for this discipline.
