civil engineering degree
Taught entirely in English by world renowned Technion faculty, the prestigious BSc in Civil Engineering program trains future engineers to meet the infrastructure creation and modernization challenges of the 21st century. The program exposes students to structural, economic, and construction management aspects of the physical and natural built environment, water resources planning, geoinformatics and transportation engineering. Students also study the underlying applications of science and engineering to the improvement and preservation of natural resources through the deployment of clean technologies and infrastructure and renewable resource alternatives.
Option of Transferring to Regular Technion Programs (in Hebrew)
Students who have successfully completed the first year of the program have the option of transferring into an undergraduate study track in Hebrew offered by other engineering and science faculties at the university, provided that their Hebrew language skills are sufficient and that they obtain the required academic average according to Technion policies. Internal Faculty Transfer Students enrolled in a Technion International program who would like to transfer to another Technion faculty are responsible for inquiring with the faculty in question about its transfer requirements.
*Students can also apply to transfer their Technion credits to a university of their choice.
The BSc degree in Civil Engineering is comprised of at least 155.5 academic credits and can be completed in 4 years.
