Department of Information Systems

Welcome to Department of Information Systems

Information systems are comprised of data, software and technologies that enable the efficient and successful management of modern organizations. They constitute the central industrial infrastructure of the information society, and are present everywhere: in banks and insurance companies, in industrial companies and retail Web-sites, in government offices, courts, and non-governmental organizations. A massive part of the activity of those organizations cannot be realized in the absence of information systems.



The department of information systems at the University of Haifa was established in 2002. In 2008 the graduate program was established followed by the Ph.D. program in 2013. Today, we have 13 undergraduate programs and 3 graduate programs with more than 400 students. The variety of researches conducted by department members is very large and includes information systems engineering, human-computer interaction (HCI), data science, knowledge representation, management of information systems, and more. More on the department members and their research interests can be found here.

The department is interdisciplinary and practicable in nature. A great emphasis is placed on industry relations, applied research, and cooperative research with other departments and disciplines within and outside of University of Haifa.  The curriculum reflects this emphasis through the industrial nature of the undergraduate final project, in the variety of double-major coordinated programs and through partaking in the IS:LINK international academic network of Information Systems schools, dedicated to promote worldwide student exchange and academic collaboration.
