Applicants for M.Sc. program – with a thesis

The goal of the Master’s program is to expand the student’s knowledge, in the field of aeronautics and aerospace, to a higher level than acquired at the undergraduate level, and to provide training in research methods. This goal is attained by studying advanced graduate level subjects, attending professional seminars and conducting research or a project in one of the fields of specialization.

Registration

When filling out the registration forms, applicants should specify which area of specialization they are interested in. It is recommended that the applicant should suggest a potential advisor from amongst the Faculty staff in that area.
The Faculty Committee for Graduate Studies will appoint a suitable advisor for Israeli applicants who do not choose one, or their suggested advisor is unavailable.
International applicants

As part of the registration process, international applicants are required to submit a declaration of intent. It is recommended to also submit GRE or Tofel scores and one or more letters of recommendation. Find an adviser by contacting faculty members in the field. For candidates who have not found an advisor, the faculty will conduct discussions twice a year (January for the following winter semester and September for the following spring semester).

In order to assist in finding an adviser for the candidates, the faculty will publish their data among the faculty members. Those who have not found an advisor can start their studies in the ‘with thesis’ track upon recommendation by the Faculty Committee. Upon starting their studies, students must find an advisor within three months and submit their research proposal within six months. Candidates who do not receive approval for their studies in the ‘thesis’ track can start studying in the ‘without thesis’ track and without scholarships. Students enrolled in the ‘without thesis’ track will be eligible to move into the ‘thesis’ track once they accumulate 12 credits on average of minimum 85, have found an advisor, and have drafted a research proposal.

In any event, the advisor will serve in a temporary capacity until a permanent advisor is appointed.  Students receiving a scholarship are required to submit a research proposal, together with their permanent advisor, within the first 3 months of their studies (see List of Advisors and their Research Interests).

Students should select one of the following Master’s degree tracks:

Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering
– for students with a Bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering, or those who completed the appropriate prerequisite courses.

Master of Science
– for students whose Bachelor’s degree is not in Aerospace Engineering but in another field of engineering or science.

Graduates of other engineering or science faculties who are interested in receiving the degree of Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering will be required to take at least 20undergraduate credits, including subjects listed here.

First degree graduates of a three-year undergraduate program who are interested in receiving the degree of Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering will be required to take prerequisite courses which will be determined by the Faculty Advanced Degrees Committee (see regulation 23.03 at Graduate School.)

 Conditions for Admission

The degree Criteria for acceptance Requirements
Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering A first degree average grade of at least 83.

When considering  your application for graduate studies the GPA taken into account will not include general elective courses.

If the average grade is between 75 and 83 it is possible to begin a “no thesis” track Master’s degree. If an average grade of at least 85 is then achieved in 12 credits and you find an adviser and prepared together a research proposal it is possible to apply for a transfer to a Masters-with-a- thesis track.

First degree from another engineering or science Faculty:

20 credits as listed here.

 

Graduate of a three year undergraduate program: about 30 credits to be determined by the Advanced Degrees Committee.

 

Master of Science First degree from another engineering or science Faculty:

No requirements unless specified by supervisor.

 

Graduate of a three year undergraduate program:

about 20 credits to be determined by the Advanced Degrees Committee. Regulation 23.03

 

Requirements for the various tracks: Courses taken in the framework of the Unit for Continuing Studies and External Studies or from other Universities may be recognized, subject to the approval of the Faculty Advanced Studies Committee and the Graduate School (see regulation 23 of the Graduate School).

Research track: a total of 42 credits, comprised of 20 credits for the research and 22 credits for courses (Includes 2 credits for extended English).

Project track: a total of 42 credits, comprised of 20 credits for the project and 22 credits for courses (Includes 2 credits for extended English).

Final Dissertation track: a total of 42 credits, comprised of 12 credits for the final dissertation work and 30 credits for courses (Includes 2 credits for extended English).

Starting October 2021, all thesis track students will be required to study one Mathematical course of the list herein within their first two semesters.

Students must attend the Faculty’s seminars.

Transfer to a direct PhD track

A transfer to a direct PhD track is possible subject to the student satisfying the Faculty admission requirements and the conditions of the School for Advanced Studies (see regulation 24.07 in Graduate School).
