The International Program in English for Woman

Computer Science Program for Women

In October 2019, JCT launched Israel’s first Computer Science Degree in English for women. Similar to the International Programs in English for men, the women’s program combines rigorous academic learning with a strong religious environment and Torah study.  The full-time, three-year academic program is fully recognized by Israel’s Council of Higher Education, and all credits will be transferable. Classes will be held four or five days a week in the mornings.  Tuition costs will be eligible for partial reimbursement for new immigrants (olim) to Israel.
JCT’s Computer Science Department offers students theoretical background, as well as practical experience in computers, providing them with familiarity in programming, the architecture of computer systems, and engineering software and communications. Alums of the program will be fully equipped to enter the workforce following graduation, having gained competitive skills and a full breadth of knowledge of the current high-tech ecosystem.
According to the Council of Higher Education, women account for 58% of students who pursue a bachelor’s degree in Israel, but just 29% of Israeli college students who study computer science. Yet at JCT, 53% of the institution’s computer science students are women, and they account for 20% of female computer science students in all of Israel.

Our international program strives to empower religious women of all backgrounds- from Haredi, to Modern Orthodox, to everything in between—with the transformative gift of a high-quality academic degree that they can pursue while continuing to embrace a religious lifestyle”.
~ Siona Margrett, former coordinator for the new women’s computer science degree.
