Data Science and Engineering 

.The amount of data produced in the world exceeds 2.5 Exabyte a day, communication capabilities increase at a rate of over 30% per year and the amount of information collected increases by 20% annually. The number of data-based applications is large and growing as is the range of fields in which they are applied - medicine, social media, finance, urban planning, smart cities, IOT and more. As a result of the above the demand for Data Experts far exceeds the supply.

 The curriculum of the BSc Data Science and Engineering degree is the first of its kind in the country. This is a prestigious flagship program of the Technion founded in light of the meteoric global development issues relating to work with Big Data and the huge demand for professionals in this field.

Whats on the program?

The program aims to train engineers to extract knowledge from data using computerized methods. The knowledge extraction process begins by collecting data, managing and analyzing it and presenting it in a variety of applications. The process is done by creating and integrating analytical models, statistical tools and others, and is based on a wealth of large amounts of data, frequently changing and varying in level of reliability. Engineer training data and information is interdisciplinary and combines statistics, machine learning, research, artificial intelligence, economics, commerce, game theory, psychology and more. Advanced courses and laboratory data allow specialization in various types of information, eg text, operational, sensory input (events), economic, and environmental epidemiology.

Curriculum emphasis has been placed on the integration of theory and practice; In particular, continuous work over the title with large databases are at the Technion and specializing in leading companies in the industry.

You can enrich the curriculum trending minor in entrepreneurship, game theory or economics.


As the school year, students will be exposed to leading data based industries and engaging in challenging and engaging data experiences and projects through the Summer (Summer internships).

What they think of us?

"A new program to train and educate data experts is a necessity given the importance of hi-tech to Israel's economy. Such a program can address our growing need for data specialists and data analysts, and can help prepare the future hi-tech employees in Israel for a world where data is abundant and requires insights to decipher it. Such a program can create a differentiator for the Israel hi-tech ecosystem and fuel its growth. "

Engineering domain data (Data Science) is the most interesting and specific high-tech industry today. Rare people today who have the ability to draw insights based on billions of observations ( "what's going on right now on social networks?"), Capable of engineering to build algorithms and robots that improve our quality of life ( "machine directions", "Search Results Showing 1-10") and have the ability to personally influence the most important decision makers in the organization, whether small or large, industrial technology. When I saw the program and data engineering at the Technion new information, I thought to myself - "I wish I could go back again undergraduate". Successful applicants!

As civilian organizations also army occupies the topic Data Science)) an important and significant challenges faced by the military in future challenges. Technion staff presented the essence of the program and its details to staff Mnt"a and adapt wings leading the army: Telecommunications Division, Air Force Intelligence Directorate. All necessary powers expressed high ASTPRers alumni, welcomed the initiative and asked to take part in absorbing ASTPRers track graduates.
