A Bit about Flow and Energy
Energy and its ramifications, the policy and economic viability are some of the main items on the economic and social agenda of international organizations, such as the OECD, the United Nations and the European Union, and of the Ministry of National Infrastructure, the Ministry of Energy and Water, and other Government Ministries in the State of Israel. Amongst the business sector, energy constitutes a central field of activity for many companies in Israel, from long established companies, such as the Israel Electric Corporation, and Solel Boneh that was bought out by Siemens of Germany, and up to and including young startup companies, that deal mainly with the domain of renewable energy. The recent discoveries of undersea natural gas resources off the coast of Israel, together with the huge potential inherent therein, accelerates the development of the various sources of energy in Israel and join many broad scope energy projects implemented, in Israel, by local and international engineering companies.
The Advantage of Majoring in the Flow and Energy Track at Afeka College
As one of the fundamental majors in Mechanical Engineering studies, flow and energy deals with the “hidden” changes occurring in bodies that constitute the components of mechanical systems (such as heat and energy), as well as in the understanding of the processes related to the various fluids in the systems and the changes occurring to them. These majoring track studies impart comprehensive knowledge and a broad perspective in the field of flow and energy, in conjunction with the in depth exploration of the various relevant subjects in thermo-dynamics, the theory of flow, power and heat generating systems, renewable energy, air conditioning, flow analysis and heat transfer.
The Future of Graduates Majoring in the Flow and Energy Track
Majoring in the flow and energy track at Afeka College opens the way for the graduates to a broad spectrum of opportunities to take up positions at organizations active in the energy and water market, in the institutional and public sectors, and at the intersection where energy infrastructure and strategy are discussed, including: Government ministries, the defense establishment, building committees and the municipal regime. This is in conjunction with the ability to take up fascinating positions in the field of designing flow systems, designing central air conditioning systems, central energy management of large consumers (such as: Airports, hospitals, IDF camps, ports, research institutes, industry, railways systems, etc.) and in detailed design functions of energy and flow systems at engineering consulting companies, crude oil and natural gas companies, manufacturing, transmission and transport.
Likewise, the tools and the knowledge provided by the majoring track enables the graduates to serve in engineering and development positions at companies that are involved in the field of renewable energy (geo-thermal, solar, thermal, photo-voltaic, hydro-electric, wind and wave) and in positions of technological consulting and analysis provided to decision makers.
