Applicants for Master’s program – without a thesis
Students should select one of the following two Master’s program degree tracks:
Master of Engineering in Aerospace Engineering (without a thesis)
This master’s program is intended for Aerospace Engineering graduates who are interested in broadening their horizons through further advanced studies. Specialization in one of the faculty’s fields is recommended.
Master of Engineering (without a thesis)
These tracks are suitable for working engineers who are interested in expanding and updating their professional expertise, without the need to write a comprehensive thesis.

Students in a no-thesis master’s program must fulfill the following requirements: 40 credits (including a final 6-credit project).
Starting October 2022, all non-thesis track students will be required to study one Mathematical course of the list herein within the first 3 semesters.
In addition, students must attend the Faculty’s seminars.
Master’s Studies without a Thesis
The ME program coordinator’s authorization will be required for course registration and all other matters pertaining to the study program.
The program requires accumulating 40 credits, 34 of which from course work with the other 6 from a final project.
within the first 3 semesters.
Students are required to accumulate at least 6 compulsory credits during the first 3 semesters, and to choose a main field in which the final project will be carried out and in which at least 15 credits will be attained. In addition, students may take at most 9 credits in other Faculties (subject to approval by the advisor) with the remaining credits from courses offered by the Faculty itself (courses with numbers beginning with 086 or 088), see ME program form.
The project involves the students own work and a written manuscript. If possible, a lecture will also be given. The project should reflect some independent thought or a synthesis of a number of fields, or a critical literature review. In the latter case the student will be expected to cover a significant amount of material which will be summarized and submitted as a written document. An industrial project is possible but more academic or basic subjects are also acceptable. The project should require a total of about 250 hours work and is worth 6 credits. It should not need to cover more than one semester.
Supervision of the final project
Supervision of the final project will be carried out by Faculty members.
Finalizing your degree
The process of finalizing the ME degree is in two stages:
(a) The first stage is through the Faculty office for Advanced Degrees:
Once you have accumulated all the credits towards the degree and all grades have been updated on your transcript (including the grade for your project), please bring me the following:
1. Your completed personal details form (please do NOT fill it in by hand)
2. The first page of your final work (its title should appear in Hebrew). If the work was carried out together other students please specify how it was distributed between you and the other participants.
3. The completed Study Program form, signed by the director of the ME program.
In addition, you should ask for authorization from the Elyashar Central Library that you are not in possession of any books that need to be returned. To do this you should send a message to email: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the library by telephone 04-8292504. The authorization will be automatically transferred to the Graduation office of the Graduate School.
Important dates during studying (registration, cancellations, requests for vacation etc.)
Students who wish to transfer to a Master’s program with a thesis must, before submitting their request:
- Accumulate a minimum of 12 credits with an average grade of at least 85.
- Find an advisor and together submit the research proposal.
