The Faculty has set excellence in Materials engineering studies as a major goal. To this end, it offers Gvishim program for outstanding students from the IDF Atuda (Academic Reserve), which enables students to design a more intensive program of studies that takes their personal capabilities and their professional ambitions into consideration. Participants in the Gvishim program are chosen after careful screening by special IDF development units. Gvishim program includes first degree (B.Sc) and master’s degree (M.Sc) in Materials Engineering including thesis. Graduates from Gvishim program will serve in the IDF in unique and key roles.
