Software Engineering Studies
From biotechnology to medicine and computer networks, wireless communications to telecommunications and security – software engineers are on demand in almost every area of modern society. Recent years have seen unprecedented growth rates within the software industry, systems have become much more complex, demands are changing at record speeds, and the market has become more sophisticated and competitive than ever before.
In light of demands, software engineers are occupying a wide variety of fields, from the development of medical, security and industrial equipment and through to simulations and support for cellular and banking systems. The software engineer accompanies products throughout all stages of development, starting with the defining of needs, through all stages of development and up until the final step of transforming into a marketable product.
Software engineering graduates are employed by the leading enterprises and companies in the market, including Ness, SAP, Amdocs, Matrix, Intel and others.
The software engineering program combines study areas from computer sciences, engineering and the industry. It trains students to become software engineers with solid analytical capabilities, wide ranging knowledge of algorithms and reliability systems, adhering to the highest industry standards. Special emphasis is placed on academic research as well as "industry-oriented" courses, exposing students to the most updated processes and tools prevalent in this segment, and enabling practical industrial expertise.
The continuous efforts to remain updated at all times led to this year's opening of a new study program for outstanding students in today's most lucrative field – cyber warfare and information security.
Graduates of the Software Engineering Department are granted a B.Sc.
