At the foundation of the research being conducted in the faculty rest a number of multidisciplin research institutes (operated jointly with other Technion faculties) and specialized research centers conducting a long list of diverse studies both in terms of their focus and in their funding. Among the funding bodies can be found Israeli and global scientific foundations, the Chief Scientists of different Israeli ministries, pubic authorities and industrial-commercial companies that together invest about 25 million shekels each year in the research. Through the activities of the centers and institutes, new technology is promoted and assimilated in engineering operations around Israel and the world.
Graduates students conduct their research in the framework of the research institutes and centers. As they study and carry out their research, they advance knowledge and innovative technologies and are provided with the kind of training that makes them potential future engineering-research leaders in the areas of national infrastructures.
