The knowledge-based technological revolution that has rapidly transformed the area of electronics and its disciplines has created the need for engineers at the highest possible professional level. This is particularly true in light of the intense global competition in the field. The engineering graduate can find his/her place in the ever-growing industrial base in the field.
The curriculum of the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department is aimed at preparing the student to meet the need for top-flight electronics engineers for such tasks as development of novel electronic circuits and equipment in such areas as computers and communication, or as electrical engineers meeting the challenges of modern industrial concerns.
The melding of electrical and electronics engineering is of particular importance at this time because of the growing needs of automatic control in high-voltage electrical systems, power plants, automation etc.
The program is built on 4 years of study, wherein the first two years focus on basic subjects including introductions to electrical and electronics engineering. From the third year the program divides into more advanced material in three basic tracks: 1. Electronics, 2. Power Systems, and 3. Communications.
The program includes an engineering project of 8 credits including the aspect of industrial experience. After submitting the project the student must present it before an examination board of the College that includes experts from academia and industry.
In recent years the department has expanded in both the size of the student body and the size of the teaching staff. The teaching staff consists of lecturers and researchers who are conducting research and projects in their particular areas of research.
Graduates of the department are eligible for inclusion in the Engineering Registry of the Association of Engineers and Architects.
The study program is held at both the Beer Sheva and
The department grants the B.Sc. Degree.
