Overview

Igor M. Verner is an Associate Professor and Head of the Center for Robotics and Digital Technology Education at the Department of Education in Science and Technology, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. His secondary affiliation is at the Technion's Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management. He was included in the Book in Commemoration of 100 Most Prominent Scientists who have immigrated to Israel and absorbed in 1989-2009. Dr. Verner published over one hundred peer-reviewed papers, guest-edited a number of special issues of archival journals, and serves on the board of the International Journal of Engineering Education and International Journal of Robotics, Education and Art. His activities at the FIEM focus on research and development of practices in the Laboratory of Computer-Integrated Manufacturing & Robotics.
