We are living in a fast-changing global economy with more opportunities, growth and development than ever before. However, these changes and the ever-increasing demand for energy and natural resources make us realise that our resources are finite and that we need to come up with new sustainable solutions for old and new challenges.
“Engineering and International Business” students are able to deal with these current environmental and fundamental challenges because they have an interdisciplinary view on resource and energy shortages and use their holistic approach to connect current and recently-developed technologies in order to find sustainable solutions. Their technological background and the modules on renewable energy systems as well as sustainable water and residue technologies help them to get to the core of these technical and environmental issues.
Apart from technical expertise, our Master students receive a solid management education within an international context. Classic business modules, such as Marketing, Sales, Finance and Project Management are incorporated into the curriculum to make students gain a general and thorough business understanding.
Subjects like International Contract Law, Licensing, Investment Strategies and Life Cycle Assessment are part of the programme, so students are able to assess the business environment, the economic viability and the efficiency of projects and systems.
After completing the degree, graduates have the necessary skills to plan water and waste management facilities and renewable energy systems, and have the knowledge to turn different smart technologies into integrative solutions. They have the competences to assess the profitability and the environmental impact of such systems. They know how to develop business models and feasibility studies within an international context and they are capable of managing projects on an international scale.
Upon graduation you can work in consultancies, in innovative start-ups, in plant manufacturing or in traditional companies that switch to renewable energy solutions and technologies. Further career opportunities lie in residue management, sustainable water supply systems as well as energy and environmental technologies. Areas of work:
Mechanical Engineering is a thriving multi-disciplinary field with significant impact on industry and society all over the world. The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, established 50 years ago, has since then been the home to many scientific breakthroughs and technological achievements. The department offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in a wide range of subjects that encompass both practical and theoretical aspects of Mechanical Engineering.
The Department has a student enrollment of over 800 students pursuing B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees.
At present, the Department employs 25 full-time senior faculty members who teach and conduct cutting-edge research in all major areas of Mechanical Engineering, including robotics, control and autonomous systems, solid mechanics, bio-inspired materials and systems, fluid mechanics, micro- and nano-electromechanical systems, heat transfer, system design and monitoring, thermodynamics, energy technologies and particulate materials technology.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a Master of Science (M.Sc.) graduate program in Mechanical Engineering. The aim of the Program is to provide students with expertise and advanced knowledge in a selected field of specialization. The M.Sc. degree requirements include the successful completion of 8 courses aimed at establishing the necessary advanced background, as well as carrying out a research project culminating in a full M.Sc. thesis. The thesis is supervised by a senior faculty member with expertise in the field of specialization. Students graduating with a M.Sc. degree are equipped to assume senior research and development positions in industry, and may continue towards Ph.D. studies.
M.Sc. studies Mechanical Engineering at BGU can be extended into a combined Ph.D. track, such that the M.Sc. thesis exam serves also as the Ph.D. candidacy exam. The M.Sc. degree is typically completed within 2 academic years (4 semesters). Area of specialization in the ME Master’s program include: robotics |control | autonomous systems | solid mechanics |thermodynamics | heat transfer | fluid mechanics | energy technologies | bio-inspired materials and systems | micro and nano-electromechanical systems| system design and monitoring | particulate materials technology.
The research leading to the M.Sc. thesis is conducted throughout the two years of studies. The student is expected to publish and present the research results in leading international journals and conferences. The thesis is evaluated through a written report and an oral examination.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please check website for scholarships application deadline.
Tuition is approximately $ 5,000 (US) per year. Outstanding students may be eligible for scholarships, which cover tuition fees and provide living expenses. Most ME faculty can provide additional substantial financial support through their research grants. Additionally, some teaching assistantship positions are also open to Master’s student, providing additional funding, on a competitive basis.

The mission of Master of Science Engineering programs is to provide accessible education in the theory and applications of engineering that

The requirements for the M.S. degree in Engineering: Mechanical: Energy are listed below. Each student’s program of study will be developed by the student’s committee as an individualized program and will be constructed in accordance with sound academic practices to provide the kind of study most suitable to the student’s needs. The proposed program must be submitted on a Program of Study form to The Graduate School office for approval during the first semester of coursework. It is that program, rather than the example which follows, which will constitute the student’s graduation requirements. Candidacy for the degree is typically filed in the semester prior to the student’s anticipated graduation semester.
The general guidelines for the M.S. degree in engineering are as follows:
The Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering is a new graduate program of the Université de Lyon, operated by the École Centrale de Lyon. It offers a two-year program in Master 1 (M1) [common-core syllabus] and Master 2 (M2) [2 options: "Aerospace Propulsion (PAS)" and "Dynamic and Sustainability of Composite Materials (DDC)"].
The concerned disciplinary fields are fluid mechanics and energy, solid and structural mechanics, materials, and control engineering, in relation with three renowned research laboratories of Lyon: LMFA, LTDS and Ampère.
The Master is in line with the strategic axis "Science and engineering for a sustainable society" defined by the Université de Lyon, as well as with two social challenges identified by the École Centrale de Lyon, "Aeronautics and space" and "Increasing the competitiveness of the industrial economy through innovation and entrepreneurship".
The purpose is to train future technical leaders and researchers for all aspects of the aerospace industry from major constructors like SAFRAN and Airbus, to component suppliers. A special attention is paid to make students aware of codes, languages and common practice in the industry. Furthermore, this industry is intrinsically transnational, with numerous opportunities to work abroad with connections to France or to work in France with connections to other countries. So the students are given the opportunity to develop international/intercultural skills.
It is to notice that the aerospace industry is subjected to long-term cycles. A "design" dominated stage with ambitious projects (A380, A350, A400M, EC 175, LEAP, …) is ending, while a "production" dominated stage is starting for the next decade. The problematic is thus moving from the design of large complex systems to the continuous optimisation of components, taking into account manufacturing and maintainability constraints, in particular with the increasing implementation of composite materials. The provided training is supporting such a change.
More specifically, the M2 option "Aerospace Propulsion" is focusing on the design process of an aircraft or a rocket engine, providing a practical understanding of all aspects of the industry, from design to manufacture and maintenance. Graduates should drive components redesign, for optimisation for new purposes or for adaptation to new production processes or maintenance procedures.
