Employment Opportunities for Engineering Graduates
The study programs in the various SCE engineering departments combine theoretical knowledge and a close relationship with leading companies in Israel. Practical field experience as part of the study programs (the Project Oriented Method) offers SCE graduates numerous advantages in the labor market, among them advanced acquaintance with nature of engineering work and market requirements, and the opportunity to develop personal and business relations with potential employers and key persons in Israel and the world.
The civil engineering study program aims to train civil engineers with theoretical and applied knowledge in planning, management and execution of civil engineering work. The curriculum meets market requirements for professional and creative civil engineers trained to work in planning, execution and management of projects in a wide range of areas: roads, bridges, railroads, tunnels, airports, diverse-purpose buildings, skyscrapers, water supply, handling sewage and more. In all study fields emphasis is placed on acquaintance with up-to-date computer systems that serve engineers in all aspects of their work.
Chemical engineering studies combine basic and theoretical knowledge with exposure to the forefront of technology and science in complex production processes. The unique curriculum underscores application of theoretical knowledge to practical experience in industry and research. This model helps our graduates find their place in key positions in large companies in Israel, among them Perrigo, Teva, Haifa Chemicals, Dead Sea Works, Machteshim and Brom.
The reputation of the SCE mechanical engineering department is well-known throughout the country, among other things owing to the annual competitions it holds among students from the different engineering programs. The department’s curriculum is unique among mechanical engineering departments in the country and aims to provide its graduates with the skills, knowledge and tools needed for mechanical engineers in the various engineering fields, and to enable them find their place at the forefront of Israeli industry.
Software engineers are involved in a wide range of fields: from the development of medical, security and industrial equipment through simulations and support of mobile and banking systems. Software engineers accompany the product, from needs definition through development up to product market entry. Graduates are employed in leading plants and companies in Israel, among them Ness, SAP, Amdocs, Matrix, and Intel.
Industrial Engineering and Management
The Industrial Engineering and Management department provides its graduates with a wide range of tools and trains them to work in a variety of fields where management decisions must be made and engineering solutions to new situations must be found: system operation and management, process analysis, planning and integration of information systems in the organizational system, analytic analysis and optimization of complex systems, planning and decision making under conditions of uncertainty, study of work methods, economic analyses, marketing, management and quality assurance. Knowledge integration enables high-level planning and management. Department graduates are employed in leading plants and companies in Israel, among them Intel, Teva, Elta Systems, Amdocs, Nuclear Research Center, El-Op and Israel Aerospace Industries.
Electrical and Electronics Engineering
The Electrical and Electronics Engineering curriculum aims to train quality and leading engineers who will be able specialize in different directions: as electronic circuit, control and communication developers, as electrical engineers in plants, power stations and in industrial control and automation systems. Knowledge acquired in electrical engineering studies enables graduates to work in a wide range of fields, and department graduates can already be found in leading companies in Israel, among them Elta Systems, Intel, the Nuclear Research Center, Amdocs and the Israel Electric Corporation.
