I am Gil Shefer, a third year gas and petroleum energy engineering student.
I chose to study towards this profession for many and important reasons, first and foremost the future of the State and my future.
I started out studying civil engineering, but after understanding that the State of Israel is at the threshold of a new energy direction I switched my track. The discovery of huge natural gas sources that will provide gas for decades, and the rapid technological progress in the green energy field opened new and varied professional tracks in the energy field and its branches for me and for those studying towards the degree. For example, building new State infrastructures for transporting the natural gas from the sea to consumers, and even exporting it to numerous state entities.
The approach at the college is good, the lecturers understand that the employment market is looking for new and efficient thinking and their teaching is in line with industry needs. The lecturers are professional and give every student personal attention, creating the desire to invest and succeed. The people are good and there is a feeling of cohesion and help in and out of class. The college uniqueness is in its location on the shores of the Kinneret combined with the birds and nature found in every corner that provide serenity beyond the success.
Furthermore, this unique track offers engagement with industry and every year there are dedicated tours to professional sites. In addition, in the last year projects are conducted at these sites in order to easily enter the employment market.
