Mechanical engineering is the core of national advanced industrial system and the corner-stone of economic development and technological innovation.
As one of the broadest and most comprehensive engineering fields, mechanical engineering is engaged in transforming scientific discoveries into products that benefit the society.To this goal mechanical engineers are required to possess knowledge and experience in various fields, combining fundamental science with engineering applications and addressing key aspects, such as security, economy, sustainable energy and environment.
Mechanical engineering involves a wide range of fields, including but not limited to traditional industrial systems and modern emerging industries.
Mechanical engineers play a crucial role in the development of advanced machinery, robots, medical application systems, optoelectronic equipment, as well as precision agriculture, construction machinery and renewable power sources. Training of mechanical engineers has a significant impact on the development of national mechanical science and technology. Due to the great capacity and fast evolvement of the mechanical engineering field, this major discipline is in great demand in the modern society.
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.
MER graduates will play important roles in development for advanced processing and manufacturing, high-tech electrical and electronics, semiconductors, medical instruments, and other related fields. They can also continue their studies for advanced degrees in such fields as alternative fuels and energy, wind and fluid power engineering, aerospace science, environmental control technology, composite materials and biological intelligent materials, fluid and solid mechanics, navigation medicine and micro robots, microfluidic technology, biomedicine, and mechatronics. Choosing either employment in the industry or advanced studies, MER graduates will enjoy numerous options and possibilities.
