Braude College of Engineering, founded in 1995 and located in Karmiel, aims to bridge socioeconomic gaps. Numbering over 3,000, the student body is made up from heterogeneous, multicultural, and multilingual backgrounds; they represent various population groups that exist throughout the Galilee: Jews, Muslims, Druze, Christians, and more. The majority of attendees hail from Israel’s north, with many of whom are first-generation college students.
Braude leadership believes that each and every person has the right to shape their own future. This is the reason why we enable candidates from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to become educated and succeed. With this in mind, the college has a lenient acceptance policy, while upholding high, uncompromising academic standards. To date, Braude has graduated over 10,000 engineers, adding to the diversity of the local industrial population.
