Engineering - Graduate Programs
The Iby and Aladar Fleischman Faculty of Engineering
The M.Sc. program of the Faculty of Engineering enables students to expand the knowledge they acquired as undergraduates and to pursue in-depth specialization in an area of their choice. The Faculty offers two types of master's programs; a thesis-based program stressing research and a project-based course, with a practical-professional orientation.
