2023 final project showcase

2023 final project showcase

Each year, towards the end of the second semester, Afeka holds a final project showcase for last-year students from all undergraduate schools and programs. This event is a high point for students, and oftentimes the project they’ve presented at the showcase continues with them into the industry, serving as their ticket into leading companies in the relevant fields.

The latest project showcase, held May 31st to June 4th, 2023, featured 270 impressive projects, the products of the students’ hard work.

The first days of the showcase featured students from the electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and medical engineering schools, as well as students from the SmartUp honors program.

Afterwards, students from the software engineering and industrial engineering and management schools presented, joined for the first time in the program’s history by students from computer science.

The showcase included a best project competition among the presenting schools, with a grand prize of 1,000 NIS. This year, the competition was dedicated to the memory of late faculty member Einat Valdman-Weisengreen, and was judged by 40 industry professionals, 60% of whom are Afeka alumni.

On Thursday, June 1, posters for additional final projects from the same departments were exhibited in the ficus garden as part of the showcase.

Nir Ellenberg, head of the final projects and works administration, summed up the showcase: “The showcase’s success was beyond the obvious. Students got to feature their professionalism, creativity, and vision, to which they’d devoted considerable time and effort.

We are proud of Afeka’s students, who push the limits of what’s possible – as industry engineers should – and who lead progress and technology even during their studies. The showcase was made possible thanks to the academic supervisors and the project managers team; the advisors who guided the students through their year of work; and the library team who helped to direct them at the start of their journey. We’d also like to thank everyone in the administrative units who’ve helped to make this showcase a success.”
