We are the Hatter Department of Marine Technologies within the Leon H. Charney School for Marine Sciences, University of Haifa. We work in technological research to develop knowledge, novel methods and advanced equipment for applied research of the sea. Located outside the University's main campus at the IOLR research institute, the department has established an advanced national infrastructure for the study of the sea. The department's academic staff combines expertise in marine engineering with understanding and research in the fields of oceanographic natural sciences. Professional engineers and technicians support the operation and maintenance of the department's marine platforms and technologies, and develop sensors that assist in research.
The department, academically linked to the Faculty of Natural Sciences, offers a variety of graduate courses across several engineering disciplines and is the only academic center in Israel to offer a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Marine Technologies. The department has exceptional students, strong scholarship in terms of knowledge generation and application and vibrant public-private partnerships with major economic impact on the State of Israel and beyond. Evident in research expenditures, scholarly publications and leadership positions in professional societies, the department has extraordinary research strength in advanced signal and image processing, underwater autonomous vehicles, machine learning, telecommunications, navigation, marine engineering, ocean physics, underwater propulsion and maneuvering.
The department uses the facilities of the Helmsley Charitable Trust Mediterranean Sea Research Center.
A Tribute to Sir Maurice Hatter
The University of Haifa mourns the loss of Sir Maurice Hatter (1929-2020), respected businessman, philanthropist and cherished friend and benefactor of this University.
