Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Structural Engineering and Chemical Engineering Departments

Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) is one of Israel largest research universities.
Approximately 19,000 students are enrolled in its five faculties (Natural, Engineering, and Health Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences, and the Guilford Glazer Faculty of Business and Management), in the Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research (BIDR), and in the Kreitman School of Advanced Graduate Studies. The University's main campus, the Marcus Family Campus, and two smaller campuses are situated in Beer -Sheva. The University also has campuses in Eilat and at Sede Boqer (home to the BIDR).
The proposed work at BGU will be done by members of the Faculty of Engineering Sciences, the largest of the University's five faculties, with 13 degree granting departments and programs led by over 170 faculty members and research workers, among whom are some of the world leading scientists and most promising young researchers.
Currently, more than 5,500 students are enrolled in studies toward bachelor, masters, and doctoral degrees, and they benefit from the Faculty collaborative vision, which encourages Faculty members to pursue joint research activities with both Israeli and foreign colleagues. Such collaborative efforts are typically interdisciplinary in nature, entailing projects in medicine, computer sciences, physics, mathematics, and chemistry, to name a few.
