First Year Engineering & Sciences Programs

Sapir Academic College operates unique Bridge Programs in Engineering and Sciences in collaboration with Ben Gurion University of the Negev. These Bridge Programs enables candidates that do not meet the entry requirements of Israeli universities to start their studies with a first year at Sapir College and then continue their degree programs at Ben Gurion University or other institutes of higher education.
We believe that students’ innate skills do not necessarily show up in admissions data. Our programs provide an intensive, demanding and supportive environment that enables students to achieve academic success and go on to attain degrees in high demand fields, contributing to Israel's scientific and engineering communities.   
The Bridge Programs serves Sapir Academic College’s most important purpose to expand access to higher education.

Israel's "Start-Up Nation" innovation and cutting-edge products require more and more qualified engineers.  Many students have the required abilities but do not meet the formal criteria. The first step to a future in one of the most desirable and rewarding professions begins at Sapir's Engineering Bridge Program.  We offer high-level first year studies that enables students fulfil their dreams of a career in engineering. Students who successfully complete the program continue their degree studies at Ben Gurion University. High-achieving students can join the Technion or Tel Aviv University engineering programs. Sapir has student admission agreements with other colleges to ensure that every successful student, on completion of their first year of studies, will find an academic placement that is commensurate with their skills.
