The Achi Racov School of Engineering

The Council for Higher Education's (CHE) decision to approve the establishment of the Kinneret College in the Jordan Valley also included a decision to establish, as part of the academic college, a School of Engineering. This is designed to boost the social, cultural and economic development of the region - which stretches from Beit Shean in the south to Kiryat Shmona in the north, and includes the Eastern Galilee region - through industrial development, with the emphasis on high-tech industry.

Accordingly, the main objective of the school is to train high-quality engineers who will work in the existing and emerging industries. The school’s academic staff and students will also engage in research, including basic research, within the framework of their study programs, and in applied research designed to promote industrial development in the region. As such, the connection between the School of Engineering and industry is one of the main pillars of the school. The study curricula have been tailored to the needs of the industry. The students gain firsthand knowledge of the industry, visit plants, listen to lectures by prominent industrialists, and carry out projects in the industry.

All study programs offered by the school are approved by the CHE. All programs include basic sciences, engineering sciences, applications in the respective degree areas, as well as aspects related to economics, management and entrepreneurship. The individual attention and assistance to students, together with the high standard of the academic staff, help to attract students from the region and from other parts of Israel. Many of the school's graduates find positions in the most prestigious high-tech industries. Often, they remain in the northern periphery of the country after completing their studies, and contribute to the region’s social, cultural and economic development. All told, students, graduates and academic staff enrich the human infrastructure in the region, and contribute to the development of local industry.

Currently, the School of Engineering includes 5 departments which offer 4-year study programs that lead to B.Sc. degrees:
  • The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering
  • The Department of Quality and Reliability Engineering in the Electronics Industries
  • The Department of Water Industries Engineering
  • The Department of Software Engineering.
  • The Department of Gas and Petroleum Energy Engineering
