The Galilee and Northern Israel has an advanced academic center in the field of Electrical and Electronic Engineering which is a core of academic learning and the focal point of knowledge, research and development. This center serves as a leverage of industrial and academic development for the region and beyond.
The existing study program specializes in training students stemming from a wide variety of backgrounds, to become EE engineers with a solid academic foundation in conjunction with applied system orientation.
This scheme enables our graduates to successfully integrate in advanced industries as development and applied engineers, or to continue their studies towards higher academic degrees.
The most outstanding achievement of the Department, since it was founded, is the increased accessibility to EE engineering academic educational institution. The Department has consistently produced several tens of EE engineers each year. Over 90% of our graduates are stable gainful employees.
Organizational Structure
The Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE) commenced its activities in 1992. the following are the significant historical milestones:

1994 - Teaching authorization .
1996 – Council of Higher Education accreditation for granting Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech), following a four year study program.
1996 –Council of Higher Education recognition of ORT Braude.
1996 – Governmental decision for granting Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech), following a four year study program
1996 – First graduating class of 23 B.Tech EEE graduates.
1999 – The Registrar of Engineers and Architectures recognized several OBC’s engineering programs, including EEE.
2004 - The EEE Department received accreditation from the Council of Higher Education for granting B.Sc. degrees to its graduates that commenced their study programs as of the academic year 2002.
2005 – The Council of Higher Education effected the granting of B.Sc. degrees through graduated whose commencement year was 2002.

The EEE Department has a four years study program for undergraduate studies towards the Bachelor of Science degree B.Sc.in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The Department also has a shortened (less than four years) supplementary program for Practical Engineers with diplomas. This accelerated program is similar to the regular program, however over a shortened study period (an intensive semester plus 2.5 academic years), since it allows for exemptions in certain courses in accordance with very strict rules, approved by the Council of Higher Education.
The EEE Department operates a study program towards a B.Sc. degree. The Department receives teaching services from four other ORT Braude Engineering College departments, namely Mathematics, Physics Industrial Management Engineering and General Studies. The Department also receives and provides professional teaching services to study programs in other departments. The Departmental Council, chaired by the Head of the Department, and consists of all members of the faculty, has ultimate responsibility for the study programs operated by the Department.
The administrative and technical staff of the Department comprises of an administrative assistant to the Department Head, a departmental secretary and two lab technicians. All other administrative functions e.g. finance, personnel, academic secretariat, facilities, maintenance, are supported by OBC's central offices.
