Dr. Zeev Weissman

Head of the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering zeev_w@shenkar.ac.il

Studies optical components, teaches courses on linear systems, signal and image processing and communications networks and has headed the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics since the 2016-2017 academic year. 
Dr. Weissman has a PHD in Engineering from Tel Aviv University (1995), prior to which he completed his Bachelor's Degree at the Technion and his Master's Degree at Tel Aviv University. He is currently involved in the development of an optical polarimetric sensor for analytical and medical uses, along with Dr. Doron Goldberg from Tel Hai College.


As part of his role in the Department, Dr. Weissman serves as the advisor for final projects of fourth year students in his fields of expertise, inter alia, on the subject of processing animal sounds (in collaboration with the Ramat Gan Safari Park), wireless sensor networks and integration of engineering components in vertical farming systems.
