Bachelor of Science
The Azrieli College of Engineering Jerusalem’s Advanced Mechanical Engineering Department, specializing in Micro-Mechanical Systems (MMS), Opened in November 2011. Specialization in micro systems trains the engineers, graduates of the department, and provides access to a wide range of fields which integrate knowledge from various disciplines in the world of engineering and science.
Mechanical Engineering studies toward a B.Sc. trains the graduates to deal with development, manufacturing planning, and inspection of mechanical systems through acquisition of knowledge and tools based on classic mechanical engineering. Specialization in micro systems (MEMS) touches upon various areas from the worlds of engineering and science. These studies provide the students a significant addition of rich theoretical and practical experience through an array of labs and advanced experiments.
The technology industry focuses on the development and manufacturing of products which require knowledge and understanding of several disciplines. As a result, there is a growing need for engineers who possess multi-disciplinary knowledge in order to integrate several areas of engineering.
A mechanical engineer with a specialization in micro systems will integrate into the leading industries, such as mechanics, electricity, and advanced manufacturing technology with a wide range of applications: military systems, medical systems, entertainment electronics, production industry, and more.
Graduates of the mechanical engineering program at the will serve as mechanical engineers with training and knowledge in micro systems and may work in fields which contain a combination of electronics and mechanics, both key in the manufacturing of sophisticated micro-electro-mechanic systems, which is comprised of improved components and lower production costs.
What is Mechanical Engineering?
The study of mechanical engineering includes basic science studies, such as classic mechanical engineering studies, mathematics, physics and chemistry, and applied engineering studies from a range of fields, such as robotics, mechanical micro systems, power and heat systems, air conditioning, internal combustion engines, and others.
The uniqueness of the course of study is found within the graduate’s acquisition of abilities, which enables him to use the classic tools of mechanical engineering in order to face the multi-disciplinary challenges in the world of micro systems in general.
Mechanical Engineering Course of Study
Mechanical engineering studies, as all engineering studies, is spread over four years. Within the first two years, the basic subjects of science and classic topics of mechanical engineering are learned. Within the second two years, the program advances into the topics specifically connected to specialization in micro-systems and a deeper exploration of classic mechanical engineering.
Students in the mechanical engineering department prepare a final project within the industry throughout their final year of study. The projects are mentored by senior faculty at the college and engineers from the industry.
Upon completion of studies, the student acquires an academic degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering – Mechanics Engineer.
Receipt of the degree is in accordance with the Council of Higher Education.
