Excellence awards are conferred to selected students enrolled in the Faculty of Mathematics as their primary Faculty.
A prize on the basis of the acceptance grades average (SECHEM): A special excellence award for those accepted to each of the tracks, with a score of 90 and above (who do not belong to the Technion Excellence Program). This prize will be awarded after successfully completing a semester of studies.
Awards for Outstanding Students: Monetary prizes from special funds granted to outstanding students during their studies.
Mathematics – Physics
This is a joint track of the Faculty of Mathematics and the Faculty of Physics. Graduates of this track are awarded the degree “Bachelor of Science in Mathematics – Physics”. Significant achievements in scientific development were made when mathematics and physics developed simultaneously while setting mutual challenges. This track is intended for those who are interested in both mathematics and physics and who wish to enjoy both worlds. This is a three-year track and contains almost all of the required courses in physics and mathematics. The aim of the track is to provide students with a broad and solid foundation in both fields. Characteristic graduates of this track are physicists with a deep understanding of mathematics or mathematicians who have a very good approach to applied science. Graduates of this track will have a basic education in a wide range of physics and applied mathematics and will be able to integrate well into research and development teams in high-tech industries. In addition, they will be at an excellent starting point for graduate studies in both departments.
Computer Science and Mathematics
This is a joint track shared by the Faculty of Mathematics and the Faculty of Computer Science. Graduates of this track are awarded the degree of “Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Mathematics”. This track is intended for candidates with exceptionally high acceptance grade averages.
Programs for outstanding students: Details of programs for outstanding students of can be seen under the admission track of the Faculty of Computer Science or Mathematics.
Areas of Practice and Employment Options: The goal of this track is to train graduates with a thorough knowledge of both computer science and mathematics. Graduates of this track will be able to integrate and lead research and industry in these areas. This program attracts excellent students, and most of the graduates of this track continue on to a master’s degree at one of the faculties of their choice. The others are accepted by other leading universities or turn to careers in the high-tech industry.
The course of study: The curriculum consists of seven semesters and includes all of the mandatory subjects in computer science and mathematics. In this program, the ratio of courses in Computer Science to Mathematics is equal. Students will benefit from the services of the two faculties.
Mathematics with Computer Science
This is a three-year (BSc) or four-year (BSc) program combining a degree in Mathematics with the study of the main subjects of Computer Science. In the three-year program, the courses in computer science constitute about one-third of the required points for the degree; the four-year program provides a broader foundation in computer science. Many Computer Science students, especially those who are studying for higher degrees, feel that they lack a strong mathematics foundation. This basis is also increasingly important to the industry. The program is designed to meet this requirement.
Graduates of the three-year and four-year programs are awarded the degree” Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Computer Science”.
Mathematics with Statistics and Operations Research
This is a three-year (BSc) program combining a degree in Mathematics with the study of the fundamental courses in Statistics and Operations Research (OR). The courses in Statistics and OR are taught by the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management and constitute roughly one-third of the required points for the degree.
The roles of Statistics and Operations Research have grown over the years in most areas of engineering, life sciences, social sciences, and management. The advantage of this track is the combination of a solid mathematical foundation, with training in applied aspects of mathematics and statistics. This program is well suited both for those who wish to continue in these fields in industry, as well as for those who wish to pursue a master’s degree.
Mathematics: Pure and Applied
The Mathematics track is the core track of the Faculty of Mathematics which equips the mathematicians of the future. This track is suitable for candidates who love Mathematics and excel at it. Applicants who register for this track can choose one of the following study tracks:
- Pure Mathematics: A three-year program. Graduates of this program are awarded the degree of BSc in Mathematics.
- Applied Mathematics: A three-year program. Graduates of this program are awarded the degree of BSc in Applied Mathematics.
- Applied Mathematics: A four-year program. Graduates of this program are awarded the degree of BSc in Applied Mathematics.
