From The Dean

The Faculty of Engineering Sciences takes pride in its teaching and research. Achievements in both of these areas over the years have enabled the Faculty to become the largest of the five Faculties at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.
Today more than 6000 students in the Faculty are studying for bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in a wide range of engineering disciplines, some unique to Ben-Gurion University. Academic faculty and around 200 researchers have placed the Faculty at the forefront of research worldwide.
The primary mission of the Faculty of Engineering Sciences is to train quality engineers in a range of engineering professions and to provide them with tools and knowledge that will enable them to become industry leaders. Contributing to this are excellent lecturers and tutors who are among the best in the country. Our graduates integrate successfully into a wide variety of roles in industry, research institutes and academia.

The Faculty awards B.Sc. degrees to those graduating from the Departments of: Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management, Materials Engineering, Nuclear Engineering, Communication Systems Engineering, Biotechnology Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Information Systems Engineering, Software Engineering and Structural Engineering. Studies for advanced degrees (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) are available in the above fields of engineering as well as in the areas of Electro-optical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering, Energy Engineering, Management and Safety Engineering, and Environmental Engineering. Fields such as renewable energy sources, nanotechnology, nano-medicine and others are also taught in the Faculty.

In addition, the Faculty encourages interdisciplinary studies and offers integrated programs that award graduates double degrees with other departments such as Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, as specified in the Faculty yearbook. The Faculty also allows outstanding students to study engineering on a M.Sc. fast track and on a fast track to a Ph.D.

Since its founding, the Faculty has a long list of accomplishments that have made it the leading and requested faculty that it is today and it continues to strive for academic and research excellence. The Faculty includes a number of research centers recognized as national and international centers of knowledge and expertise: the Medical Informatics Research Center, the Paul lvanier Center for Robotics and Production Management, the Reimund Stadler Minerva Center, the Center for the Study and Development of Protection Technology, the VLSI Systems Center and the Blechner Center for Industrial Catalysis and Process Development. In addition, Faculty researchers are active in the National Institute for Biotechnology in the Negev and the Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology.

As we strive for excellence we maintain close ties with industry. Those ties are expressed in the awarding of scholarships and prizes to students, unique training courses under the auspices of industrial companies, support of research, teaching and research laboratories, curriculum development, and the hiring of students and graduates in industry. In addition, we host world-renowned scientists as part of the Dean’s Podium.

The Faculty aims to remain on a par with the leading faculties in the world and lays emphasis on updating and developing courses and curricula that meet market requirements, as well as cultivating and improving research and teaching infrastructures, hiring outstanding staff members, strengthening the existing research centers and increasing cooperation with academic institutions and industry in Israel and abroad.

Applicants who are accepted to the Faculty of Engineering Sciences will study in a quality, dynamic and vibrant atmosphere which is attentive to their needs.

I wish you all productive, challenging and enjoyable studies.

Prof. Joseph Kost
Dean of the Faculty of Engineering Sciences
