Unique training programs for engineers and executives
Students from around the world are welcome to join the unique programs Afeka College offers in English for both Israeli and international students.
Large Scale Systems Engineering in an Entrepreneurial Environment (LASSEE): a five-day certificate training program developed specifically for engineers and executives with varied backgrounds interested in further developing their managerial and technical abilities. Developed with renowned industry professionals, the program is based on the College’s MSc in Systems Engineering, the country’s leading public program in systems engineering.
The LASSEE Program combines five major elements:
- Systems engineering methodologies and tools.
- Case studies of large-scale Israeli systems development projects.
- Systems engineering for vertical segments (energy, service, infrastructure and transportation).
- SIT (Structured Inventive Thinking) - a structured method for enhancing creative problem solving in engineering design.
- Internal and external entrepreneurship.
Intelligent Transportation Systems and Their Applications (ITS): a five-day certificate training program providing professionals and managers of urban and regional transportation systems with state-of-the-art tools and methodologies. The course covers applications created in developed countries over the last two decades and their contribution to efficient, safe and sustainable mobility in a range of applied contexts. The program, developed by the Afeka Center for Infrastructure Transportation and Logistics (ACITRAL) in cooperation with with international and national ITS experts from academia and industry, covers the following:
- Introduction to ITS architecture, technology and vision
- ITS applications to urban transport, public transport, motorways, logistics and safety
- Emerging R&D concepts in the design of Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS)
- ITS services innovation introduced by satellite constellations (for example GPS and GALILEO)
- Harvesting traffic information from modern data sources (cellular, GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi)
- Web 2.0 and mobile transportation applications
- A visit to a traffic control center and discussions of implemented projects
