Multidisciplinary research is carried out both in the unit as well as in cooperation with many of Technion’s other scientific and technological units and with other research institutions. Special emphasis is given to collaborative projects with leading research groups worldwide.

MSc program

Students select their research topics from the research areas offered, with the approval of the staff member concerned.
Graduate students may choose their course curricula from a wide variety of electives given by the Faculty’ s academic staff and visiting professors, and may also attend approved courses in other Technion academic units.
Some research fields are open also to candidates holding an undergraduate or MSc degree in another natural science or an engineering field. Additional course work may be required in such cases by the Graduate Studies Committee, in accordance with the student’s academic background.
MSc students are required 30 course credits and a research thesis. Distinguished students are encouraged to join the direct PhD study track.

PhD program

PhD students are required to conduct an original research project supervised by a faculty member. In addition they are required 6-10 course credits. They are required to pass a candidacy exam as well as a final oral one on the subject of their thesis.
