Master of Engineering (General)

The Master of Engineering (General) interdisciplinary program includes the following academic units: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology and Food Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management, Architecture and Town Planning, Materials Science and Engineering.

Studies in this program are in the non-thesis track and lead to the degree “Master of Engineering. The program is designed for Engineers who plan to broaden their knowledge in interdisciplinary subjects. This program offers a large variety of study programs based on all graduate courses of the academic units at Technion.

Admission Requirements

Candidates must hold a 4 years Engineering BSc degree from an accredited university, and meet the requirements of the Graduate School and of the academic unit of the chosen specialization. Graduates of 3 years BA in exact sciences may apply, and if accepted (as qualifying students) will be required to study additional 20 prerequisite credits. Acceptance is subject to the Interdisciplinary ME Committee’s approval as well as the academic unit representative in the required specialization.

Study Requirements

The study program is based on 40 academic credit points, 15 of which will be in the chosen specialization. Students of a different background than that of the chosen specialization will be required to study its core undergraduate courses.

The main specializations are: Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology and Food Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Management (Information Management Engineering), Architecture and Town Planning (Building preservation), Materials Science and Engineering, Vehicles Engineering.

The student will choose a specialization in accordance with the ME General Committee, which will approve the chosen study program. The course lists of all specializations can be obtained from the General ME Secretary. It is compulsory to study the prerequisite courses before taking the required obligatory courses.

In addition to the required 15 specialization credits, the student is required to study a project/seminar course in his specialization, equivalent to 5-6 credits (as is customary in the department’s non-thesis track). The project/seminar is personal and cannot be performed in collaboration with other students.

All other courses will be graduate courses selected by the student, provided that he meets their prerequisite requirements.

Graduates of 3 year undergraduate degrees in exact sciences will be required to take additional 20 credits. They will transfer to the status of regular students after completing successfully these courses, as determined by the academic unit representative of their specialization, and in any case, with a grade not lower than 75.
