Dr. Dan Herman, Head of the Automotive Systems Engineering Internship at Afeka College, decided to teach his students a lesson with exceptional teaching aide - a real truck brought to class

Since the first meeting with Dr. Dan Herman and the undergraduate program in mechanical engineering at Afeka College, it was clear that there was someone here who blends something he loves very much, with something he really understands and is good at. So, that was when we met the crazy model display presented at the college. Students learned about the design and technological advances that the automotive world has undergone.
This time, as part of a car construction course, the students learn about the considerations in designing and building the chassis and sub-frame of the vehicles. And in the case of a truck chassis, the unique requirements this kind of vehicle has. For example, the need to impart structural flexibility to the chassis is reversed by the rigidity they aspire to design in a chassis, for example. But instead of delivering the lesson with the usual means of presentations and drawings, Dr. Herman did something else.More in Walla! NEWS More in Walla! NEWS

He heads to China Motors, a JAC truck importer for Israel, to ask for a truck made by the company for the demo. And so, this time the students went through when they were around, under and inside a real truck. When faced with one, the explanations of construction methods used U beams with rivets, how the racks are connected to the chassis and more. The direct contact with the truck also prompted students to ask questions that might not have come up at all in a theoretical class.
"Like other professors in Afeka, I am involved in doing industry - in parallel with teaching, and it serves me in these kinds of cases, helping me to teach in a much more creative and practical way," Dan Herman tells Walla Automotive. "Understanding that there is a need to feel and see to know more. For example, during the course, students go to the production of Tomcar (original Israeli SUVs), and during the visit, Yoram Zarhi, the owner of the factory, also lectures students on real day-to-day considerations in planning And vehicle production. "

And Herman, from that conversation with him as well as the things he tells me later, turns out to be Pleasure and Byznis. So besides a bachelor's degree in automotive engineering and a master's degree in automotive engineering and a doctorate in automotive engineering he is currently working on, he also has a Porsche collectible (944) and a rally driving course in France in his past.
"The mode of study is specifically tailored to the subject and is not fixed. Some of the material is traditionally delivered where the lecturer is facing the classroom. Another part is learned by implementing simulation design projects as a realistic work of an industrial development engineer. In the lab - students perform car experiments, learn how to do them And learn to link driving sensations with the dynamics equations they learned in the classroom. "
The Minister of Education will write before you, there is an urgent need for several tens of thousands of Dan Hermans in the state education system, probably our situation in the following PISA tests will be significantly good.
About the program for automotive engineering at Afeka College:
As part of the undergraduate program in mechanical engineering, Afeka, the Tel Aviv Academic College of Engineering, operates the only specialization in the country of automotive engineering. In this framework, the graduates train and give them knowledge and understanding of the unique requirements and complexity of the vehicles as a machine, so that they can engage in car design and systems, work for car importers and various positions in bodies where technical fleet management is required.
