Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Technion has been recognized as one of the leading departments in its field. The reserarch in the faculty is diverse, highly multi-disciplinary, and is on the forefront of science and technology. Research in the Faculty is carried out through research centers. The centers provide Faculty members and their students the facilities, manpower and support to conduct their projects. A wide range of courses and research projects is available in the following areas: Biomechanics, CAD, Control, Design and Production, Design in Marine Environment, Dynamical Systems, Energy, Flow-Structure Interaction, Fluid Mechanics and Transport Phenomena, Mechanics of Materials, Mechatronics, Micro-systems, Nano-Mechanics, Optical Engineering, Reliability, Robotics, Surface Engineering.

Coordinator Prof. Alon Wolf

Prof. Alon Wolf

Prof. Wolf earned all of his academic degrees from the faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Technion University & Institute of Technology in Israel, receiving his Ph.D. in 2002. Immediately after receiving his Ph.D., he joined the Mechanical Engineering department at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate. A year later, he joined the Robotics Institute of CMU as well as the Institute for Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (ICAOS) as a research faculty. Prof. Wolf also held an adjunct Assistant Professor appointment in the Department of Surgery of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. As a researcher at CMU, he was awarded both N.S.F and N.I.H research grants for his research in biomechanics and medical robotics.

In March of 2006 Prof. Wolf joined the faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Technion University & Institute of Technology. Here he founded a new research lab, the Biorobotics and Biomechanics Lab (BRML). The objective of the research in the BRML is to develop fundamental theories in bio-kinematics and biomechanics as well as to apply these theories to applications in medical robotics and biorobotics. Prof. Wolf strongly believes that every theoretical study should be applicable to the real world; however, translating theory into practice is perhaps the greatest challenge of academic research. As such, his work in the fields of medical devices and biorobotics is focused on developing new medical tools and procedures; as a result, he has already invented several medical robotssome already working robots in the operating rooms worldwide.
