The Department of Software and Information Systems Engineering (SISE) offers B.Sc, M.Sc. and Ph.D degrees. The department offers B.Sc. degrees in two programs:

B.Sc. Program
in Software and Information Systems Engineering (SISE)​

The SISE program is a four-year program (8 semesters) during which students accumulate 160 credit points. (One credit point is usually equivalent to one lecture hour or two lab/exercise hours). In the first and second years of study the emphasis is on basic courses in areas such as computer science, mathematics, statistics and quantitative methods. Most of the courses that are specific to the SISE discipline are concentrated in the third and fourth years of study. The fourth year includes elective courses in SISE and requires the completion of an intensive final project.

B.Sc. in Software Engineering (SE)

The SE program is managed jointly with the Department of Computer Science (CS), which is part of the Faculty of Natural Sciences.

M.Sc. Program 
in Software and Information Systems Engineering (SISE)

The M.Sc. degree is intended mainly for graduates of SISE, SE and CS. However, honor students who have graduated from other engineering departments may also apply. We accept only excellent candidates from leading universities and colleges.​ Non-SISE graduates are required to complete a number of courses from the B.Sc. program in SISE (depending on their previous studies) before being admitted as full-time M.Sc. students.

In addition 3rd-year students with excellent grades can be admitted to the M.Sc. program via a special track. These students work concurrently on completing the requirements of the B.Sc. program and on their graduate studies.

The M.Sc. program trains the student to perform research-oriented projects. The program consists of eight courses (24 credit points) and a research thesis (12 credit points). Two of the eight courses are mandatory: Research Methods in SISE, and SISE Development Methodologies; the remaining six courses are graduate-level elective courses in various areas of SISE. Up to two of the elective courses may be accrued from other disciplines such as CS and Behavioral Sciences (pending approval of the student's advisor and the M.Sc. teaching committee). In addition to the courses, the M.Sc. program requires a research thesis supervised by one or more of the department's faculty. The students are also required to participate in the SISE weekly seminar, and to present in that forum twice: a short presentation of their research proposal, and a presentation of their complete research.​​

Ph.D. Program

in Software and Information Systems Engineering (SISE)

The doctoral studies are intended to prepare high quality researchers for teaching and research positions in academic and research institutes. The studies are adapted according to the background and experience of each student and her/his research topic. In addition to completing the course work and writing a doctoral dissertation, students are required to participate in the various research and teaching activities organized by the department, including the departmental seminar.​
