Curriculum Objectives

The curriculum qualifies graduates in the fields of programming and development, allowing graduates to integrate into the hi-tech industry in Israel and abroad. Courses focus on practical orientation with the broad theoretical background. Students gain the toolbox needed to quickly integrate into a diversity of roles in technology, cyber and hi-tech industries.


The syllabus combines theoretical background with practical courses at basic and advanced levels, such as software development, algorithms and computation, computer and software systems, programming languages, data security, a workshop for projects, and more. The 2nd and the 3rd Years enable students the chance to choose from two fields: software engineering, or data security (cyber).
