The "Atidim”– Future Industries Project has been established with the participation of the business community in Israel, academic institutions and the Israel Defense Forces. This program is designated to assist children of the development towns and cities from Israel’s peripheral areas following full military service to become integrated into quality academic studies. Industrial firms that take part in this project adopt students, support and accompany them economically and academically, employ them during vacation time and offer them a suitable employment contract upon completion of their studies. During the 2004-2005 academic year, the College joined academic institutions in this program. The economic assistance provided to each student includes: a scholarship for funding tuition, monthly living expenses, dormitory fees, personal mobile computer, including software, social mentoring and academic mentoring.
