The School of Mechanical Engineering occupies the south east section of the University of Beer Sheva main campus. The various buildings of the School of Engineering are arranged according to the Master Plan of the campus to define a small independent cluster along the pedestrian axis that leads directly to the University Train Station.


The School of Mechanical Engineering is divided up into two buildings. The main building occupies the administration, offices, classrooms and the second building occupies the laboratories of the research center.


The Buildings were designed in exposed concrete in accordance with the old concrete campus of the 50’s. The semi-urban building fabric was articulated with a variety of interior and exterior public spaces as pleasant shady microclimate environments in the desert.
