High-gear engineering: A private screening of the film Gran Turismo

ברוכות וברוכים הבאים לאירוע הנדסה בהילוך גבוה

In September 2023, about 150 Afeka alumni, students, and faculty members took part in a High-Gear Engineering event: A private screening of a new technology-themed film with a lecture by an expert on the subject

The film Gran Turismo is based on the life of Jann Mardenborough, a young gaming champion of the successful racing game series, who was the first contestant to replace the simulator with an actual racecar. His skills led him to win a series of competitions by Nissan and become a racecar driver.

Before the screening, the audience was treated to a live talk by international racing driver Dekel Naar, who spoke about life in the fast lane, simulator driving, and its effect on competitive driving.

The event, a joint initiative by the automotive systems specialization at the school of mechanical engineering, Afeka Alumni Relations, and the marketing department, gave participants an experience that combines constructive dialogue about the skills required in the virtual world and the real world, realizing dreams, initiative, willpower, and of course the power of technology along with the irreplaceable values of experience and friendship.

Afeka College believes in out-of-the-box and lifelong learning, and to this end will keep enriching and informing its students and alumni in a variety of creative, surprising, and experience-based ways, in order to fuel their passion for engineering and technology.
