The Hatter Department of Marine Technologies



Duration of studies:

M.Sc. studies: Two years.

Ph.D. studies: Three years.


Unprecedented development in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Israel and in particular the development of gas reserves and associated infrastructure, draw international attention to Israel's economic zone in the Mediterranean and pose unprecedented challenges to the State of Israel. Marine development that is intelligent and sustainable has to be based on scientific and technological capabilities, requiring advanced monitoring infrastructure and marine research, and developing appropriate expertise and skill.

The Department (under construction) of Marine Technologies in the School of Marine Sciences at the University of Haifa is an Academic Department for Technological Research, that aims to support and develop knowledge, infrastructure and advanced equipment for practical research at sea and specifically in the deep sea, and be a national infrastructure for the study of the sea.

The department staff will consist of a group of academic staff who combine expertise in marine engineering and physics with understanding and research in the fields of oceanographic natural sciences. The research and equipment activity will be assisted by professional engineers and technicians who will support the operation and maintenance of naval platforms and technologies and in developing marine sensors. The academic and technical personnel will focus on the use and promotion of relevant marine technologies such as innovative advanced sensors (optical , acoustic and others) , communication, navigation and underwater propulsion.

The vision of the Department is to constitute a center of national knowledge and infrastructure for studying the deep sea.
