Forging a Path
Innovative curricula will bring together students across disciplines, from both undergraduate and graduate programs. Virtual and augmented reality, HCI (Human-computer interaction), robotics, digital fabrication, and 3D printing will be featured alongside the study of engineering, computer science, biology, and social and applied neuroscience. The Center will serve as a home for cutting-edge research on health, business, sustainability, government, and security as well as new learning technologies.
Industry professionals and business leaders who wish to enrich their knowledge and broaden their horizons will be able to attend specialized courses and seminars. Building on Israel’s reputation as an entrepreneurial incubator, the Patrick and Lina Drahi Innovation Center will carry Reichman University through this new decade and beyond.
