M.E.E. (Master of Electrical Engineering) Track
Special regulations for the M.E.E. (Master of Electrical Engineering) Track:
1. At least 40 credit points accrued from graduate courses.
2. 6 out of the above 40 points must be in seminar courses and/or laboratory including a strong component of independent work. According to the recommendation of the course lecturer and the supervisor, and after the approval of the committee of graduate studies, the student can fulfill this requirement by taking alternative courses that like the seminar courses and/or laboratory include a strong component of independent work. A course qualifies as “seminar” if it belongs to the 048…/049… groups and, in addition, at least 50% of the grade is based on a paper.
3. According to the recommendation of the supervisor, the student will be allowed to take relevant courses from other departments: Physics, mathematics, computer science and industrial engineering.
4. According to the recommendation of the supervisor and the approval of the committee of graduate studies, the student can transfer to a Masters program with a thesis if the applicant is found suitable and an appropriate research topic has been defined, or if the independent work develops into work appropriate in scope and depth as a thesis. This is conditional on the agreement of an advisor, from the members of the E.E. department, who agrees to supervise the thesis work. In considering the application, the committee shall consider all achievements by the student up to the time of the request.
5. Prior coursework by an M.E.E. student, done at the Technion or elsewhere (and which is not part of the requirements for another degree) may be approved as part of the requirements, up to a maximum of 24 credit points, of which at most 10 where taken outside the Technion. Following such a request by the student, approval depends on the courses taken and their level. The remaining points will be taken at the Technion as part of the study program.
6. Graduate students pursuing this program are prohibited from continuing their studies towards a doctoral degree at the department. Continuation of studies towards a Ph.D. degree requires the completion of a research thesis in a category of research work or final paper. M.E.E. graduates may be admitted to the regular M.Sc. program (with a thesis) where their credited graduate courses will be accounted for and only a research thesis (which may be related to their comprehensive seminar) should be completed. If the achievements of the student and the thesis are sufficiently high, a transfer to a direct Ph.D. program may be possible, subject to the regulations of the graduate school and those listed below.
7. An M.E.E. student is not eligible for a stipend.
C. Admission to the Master in Electrical Engineering track (M.E.E. – without thesis):
Candidates for the M.E.E. degree should hold a B.Sc. degree in EE or Computer Engineering, or Computer and Software Engineering, or a Bachelor degree in Engineering or Science from the Technion or another accredited University. Admission Requirements: The candidate should satisfy one of the following conditions:
1. The candidate has a grade point average of 85 or higher in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or Computer and Software Engineering from an Israeli university, or a grade point average of 88 or higher from an Engineering or Science department at the Technion or another accredited University.
2. The candidate has a grade point average of 83 or higher from an Engineering or Science department at an accredited University in Israel or abroad, was considered and accepted by the Graduate Studies Committee (concerning supporting material for your application contact the Faculty Graduate Studies Secretary).
3. The candidate satisfies the requirement of transfer from Advanced Studies (see below: admission through achievements in Advanced Studies).
Pre-requisites for the M.E.E. track
Pre-requisites for the M.E.E. track are the same as for candidate for the M.Sc. degree.
