Projects in the EE department combine both theoretical knowledge, gained by the students during their studies, and application work to prepare the students for industry.
Usually, students perform projects on their 5th to 8th semester, depending on the prerequisites they fulfill and the areas of specialization they choose.
Projects A and B are mandatory, while the Special Project is elective.
The students perform the project in pairs (in special cases work of lonely student will be considered). They can choose a subject in any of the project laboratories, in various fields.
Each lab has its own prerequisites and requirements. Some projects are defined as ‘dual-semester’ projects, i.e. they are defined for two semesters and students are required to register to two projects (A+B, or B+Special) in successive semesters.
The supervisors for the projects are usually graduate students of the Technion, or, in some cases staff members. External supervisors are sometime involved as well, to support areas in which their expertise is needed.
Some labs work in cooperation with industry, usually high-tech companies, who wish to gain knowledge from research done by staff and students. Many successful projects were done that way during the last years, and many of those companies keep proposing subjects for projects almost every semester.
