The BFE Program follows the program of the Department of Biotechnology and Food Engineering at the Technion.
The Department of Biotechnology and Food Engineering is one of the few departments worldwide to incorporate areas of biotechnology and food engineering under one combined degree.
The main teaching ideas of this program are based on the advanced research and teaching management experience of the Wolfson Chemical Engineering Faculty and actively cultivate talents to meet local economical and industrial developments challenges.
The Chemical Engineering program at GTIIT seeks to achieve advanced international standards and is a discipline combining chemistry, biochemistry, and engineering tools. The program courses include traditional fundamental chemistry as well as engineering, merged with high-level theory and tools e.g., nanotechnology, biomedical engineering, water desalination technology, and new energy.
The Chemistry Program of Guangdong Technion-Israel Institute of Technology [GTIIT] was officially approved by the China Ministry of Education in early 2022, and conducted student recruitment in the same year.
In the past two decades, three in-service professors of the Technion, where The chemistry discipline is very strong, have won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, namely Aaron Ciechanover (2004), Avram Hershko (2004), and Dan Shechtman (2011).
The Schulich Faculty of Chemistry also has several interdisciplinary projects, including materials engineering, chemical engineering, physics, food engineering, etc., and undertakes more than 100 research projects supported by the chemical industry’s national and international funds, which may provide sufficient teaching and scientific research strength and resources.
Based on physics, chemistry and engineering, the Materials Science and Engineering program aims to lead students and researchers to understand how composition, microstructure, and processing affect the properties and performance of materials, and is a combination of multidisciplinary knowledge and skills.
MSE has developed cutting edge research in several fields including i) materials for energy conversion, ii) nanoelectronics, iii) advanced materials processes and characterization, iv) polymers and soft materials, and v) medical and healthcare materials.
Mechanical engineering is the core of national advanced industrial system and the corner-stone of economic development and technological innovation.
GTIIT Mechanical Engineering and Robotics (“MER”) program integrates the advanced resources and more than 80 years’ experience of the Mechanical Engineering Education in the Technion, and aims to cultivate outstanding engineers in many fields, such as energy and fluid, solid mechanics design and manufacturing, robot automation and control engineering, etc.
