Teaching

Courses

Some courses I have created and gave:

  • 2020-present (Faculty of ECE, Technion): Overview of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This course describes for first-year students in our faculty the various fields included in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and presents main aspects of an engineer’s skills in the high-tech industry. I co-created this course with Prof. Avinoam Kolodny and have been co-teaching it with him since.
  • 2011-present (Faculty of ECE, Technion): Introduction Project in Electrical and Computer Engineering. This course provides a gentle introduction to the Electrical and Computer Engineering profession for first-year students in our faculty. I am part of the team who created this course, have been involved in teaching it since, and have been the teacher in charge of this course for several semesters.
  • 2005-present: Image & video compression course (various places). A course that I have co-created and give in various places together with Nimrod Peleg. The course deals with the principles of image & video compression as well as industry standards such as JPEG, MPEG-1/2/4, H.261/3/4, H.265/HEVC. Also covers other image and video processing topics such as image and video quality assessment.
  • 2002-present (Faculty of ECE, Technion): Object Oriented Programming and Design. This course was created by Gabi Zodik and I, and has been given by both of us since 2002. Since 2017, I am the lecturer of this course. The course covers major themes of OOP, software design, and design patterns. The Java programming language is used.
  • 2005-present (various places): Various courses on C, C++, Java, and software engineering.
  • 2001 (Mediatech college): MCSD (Microsoft Certified Solution Developer) course. Covering C, C++ and the Microsoft .NET platform. As far as I know, I was the first in the northern Israel to teach the .NET architecture. 430 hours.
  • 1997 (MALAM): PC technician course. 100 hours.

Experiments, Presentations, …

I have co-created and supervised several experiments for undergraduate students. I have also written a number of presentations and documents on lesser known aspects of MATLAB, and I’m the faculty’s “knowledge center” on the subject.
