ORT Braude Academic College of Engineering is strategically located in the heart of the Galilee’s lush landscapes, on the city of Karmiel’s west side, surrounded by the Jezreel Valley, the Upper and Lower Galilee, and the Krayot and western Galilee villages.
The college confers B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in the specific engineering and science fields most in demand in Israeli industries.
ORT Braude was founded with the goal of advancing equality in Israeli society through education. The focus of the institution is to provide higher education in the engineering professions for Israel’s northern region. Recently, the college has added another dimension to its mission: advancing productivity of Israeli industry in general, and traditional industry in particular.
ORT Braude is the only college in Israel with a curriculum that includes internships in industry and other academic institutions. This policy has proven itself over the years, as many of the college’s graduates have been instantly hired by Israel’s top companies, factories, and research institutes upon completion of their studies.
ORT Braude’s student body currently numbers over 3,000. To support these students, and attract more, tremendous effort and resources are continuously being dedicated to implementing the most advanced curricula and teaching methods while providing students with a supportive learning environment in order to help each and every one of them achieve their full potential.
ORT Braude has received the prestigious Yitzhak Rabin National Quality & Excellence Award for its work in the public sector, but the true measure of the college’s success is the thousands of graduates who have successfully pursued careers in the research, industrial, and business worlds following graduation.
