My name is Ram Spiner and almost 20 years ago I deliberated over a career choice. I wanted to combine office work with work in the field. I wanted to work in a computerized environment, but I also wanted to work with people. More than anything I wanted to work in a profession which I would feel was meaningful, important and challenging, and which would allow me to develop.
The choice of water engineering, which provides a solution for all these desires, transpired as the right decision, back then, and even more so today. I could not have known that the field would develop so rapidly in Israel and around the world, as has been the case in recent years.
The importance of the profession to society and industry in Israel is constantly increasing, the more the world in general, and Israel in particular, cope with growing shortages of freshwater.
The study program of the bachelor’s degree in water industries engineering, which was devised at Kinneret College on the Sea of Galilee, was designed to train engineers who are able to rapidly integrate in the growing water industry, in a wide range of positions and work environments. This also includes training and providing tools for future development, in response to the constantly changing needs of the profession.
