Studying science is one of the most fascinating topics today. Scientific development touches on a wide range of environmental, health and technology issues, and is a lever for the prosperity and quality of life of human society in general and in Israel in particular. The degree in science is a first step in dealing daily with new challenges and it rewards its owner not only as a profession, but as an enriching knowledge, broadens horizons, develops research abilities, provides tools for critical analysis and additional skills required today in a dynamic and changing work environment.
The Faculty's location on one campus increases interdisciplinary collaborations, expanding research horizons and breakthroughs. This trend is reflected in our challenging curricula, which provide unique scholarships to support outstanding students.
