Undergraduate Studies

Biotechnology Engineering is a broad field that utilizes engineering tools and is characterized by a groundbreaking way of thinking, resulting in the transformation and advancement of the life sciences discipline to the development of applications that benefit humankind and the environment.

Food engineering is a unique discipline that combines knowledge from the fields of chemistry, biology, food science, nutrition, and health sciences, along with important principles from the fields of engineering and technology, in order to facilitate the production of food that is safe, available, nutritious and of proper quality.

The Faculty of Biotechnology and Food Engineering is the only one of its kind in Israel that trains engineers and researchers in two fields: the field of biotechnology and the field of food science.

Specialization Tracks

The student will choose two of the five majors offered at the end of about two years of core studies in engineering and sciences. Each of the majors combines theory courses with experience and research courses. Outstanding students have the opportunity to conduct research in the research laboratories of faculty members in the faculty.

The Applied Biotechnology track focuses on cellular and molecular technologies serving research and industry.
The Medical Biotechnology track focuses on the development of advanced multidisciplinary technologies aimed at diagnosing, treating, and preventing diseases in the age of precise and personalized medicine.
In recent years the volume of biological and medical information and the need to analyze such data efficiently is becoming relevant for biotechnology and food engineers. The track for Quantitative Biotechnology will focus on providing the computational tools for data analysis.
This track will provide students with diverse knowledge and practical skills in food engineering and health, combined with advanced topics in nutrition and the connections between them.
This track will provide students with diverse knowledge and practical skills in engineering technologies, advanced topics in food science, the environment, as well as entrepreneurship and innovation
