Department of Chemical Engineering
Department Head: Dr. Yoav Rockman
Study Term: Four Years (161 Credit Points)
The Department awards its graduates with a B.Sc. degree
Chemical Engineering is a multidisciplinary profession that focuses on materials and processes, and represents a very broad range of technologies.
Graduates of the department possess the skill and training required for developing and transferring a product from the laboratory to a semi-industrial facility and onto manufacturing and marketing, from the concept stage to prototypes to processes and products - in short, from theory to reality.
To succeed in this mission, our students are equipped with scientific tools (chemistry, physics, mathematics and computers), engineering tools, as well as with practical studies in the most advanced labs and workshops in Israel.
In addition, our students visit industrial factories, study one of the majors offered by the department and eventually, prior to their graduation, they experience a planning and research project.
The ties between Shenkar and the industry are ever growing, with a constant addition to the various heads of industry who support the department by granting scholarships, initiating joint studies and assisting the students with their final projects.
Chemical engineering is considered to be particularly multi-disciplinary in approach, compared to other engineering fields. The department’s graduates, equipped with the tools and skillset provided during their studies, can find employment as engineers, researchers and managers in various fields of industry. Graduates of the program who are interested in a research career can continue to pursue higher degrees at other institutions in Israel and abroad, relying on the best engineering background of its kind.
