Established in 1999, Azrieli – College of Engineering Jerusalem (originally called The Jerusalem College of Engineering) is a non-profit organization committed to creating well-educated and highly trained professionals in engineering. The college offers four-year B.Sc. degrees in several engineering disciplines and pre-college academic preparatory programs for students who wish to improve their grades to apply to the College and master’s programs in Software Engineering and Technological Entrepreneurship.
The college was initially founded following a government decision to provide a solution for Jerusalem’s growing demand for human capital in the high-tech sector moving to the city at that time. Its mission included bolstering Jerusalem’s economy by enabling the growth and success of Israel’s knowledge-based and high-tech industries. The college has developed close contact with industry – Teva, NDS, AVX, Intel, and many others – to provide its students with the training and tools necessary to succeed.
