THE NEED
For Students
Science is a gateway subject to engineering and high tech – critical and
highly-valued professions in the Start-Up Nation. HEMDA offers a positive
learning environment where students can share ideas and knowledge,
engage in scientific enquiry, and excel, regardless of their background.
Given HEMDA’s outstanding academic success, student demand is
constantly increasing.
For Israel
HEMDA helps to build the next generation of scientists for Research &
Development (R&D) in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), academia and
business who will lead the State of Israel and the world into the future.
Science and technology are instrumental to Israel’s defense and economy.
Therefore, a pipeline of expertise in physics, chemistry and computer
science is essential to battle the new threat – cyber warfare – and to retain
Israel’s competitive advantage as the ‘Start-up Nation’.
