Since enrollment to the School of Computer Science is limited, only candidates with the highest grades will be admitted.
Transfer to the various programs is subject to the approval of the Curriculum Committee.
Admission to Computer Science
The admission requirements to Computer Science due to the large volume of applicants. Admission depends on high grades on the Matriculation Examinations (“Bagrut” or equivalent) and the Psychometric Entrance Examination, and in rare instances, on high grades in extensive advanced studies in Mathematics and Physics.
To qualify for the second year in Computer Science, a student must complete the first year courses in the School of Mathematical Sciences with a weighted minimum average of 70. (The teaching committee may require a higher average from students who changed the program to which they were originally accepted and from students who are exempted from some of their first year courses on the basis of previous academic studies). Since available places are limited, the number of students accepted will be determined each year according to the number of openings.
Students who are not accepted to the Computer Science School may transfer to the School of Mathematical Sciences in one of the other tracks.
