Twenty-year old Alisa Rakhlina immigrated to Israel from Russia, by herself, only two years ago. Today, she studies Software Engineering at JCE.
"I chose to come to Israel," she says, "in order to work in the high-tech sector." After completing a one-year pre-academic preparatory program at the Technion, Alisa chose to move to Jerusalem to continue her studies: "I had heard about the Jerusalem College of Engineering from friends of mine. I heard that the academic level was high and that the College had close ties with Israel's leading high-tech companies. I was also able to receive a scholarship here, and that was a big help, financially."
Alisa, who terms her mother a "role model," chose to study Software Engineering in order to follow in her footsteps. "I want to be a software engineer in one of Israel's top companies. I know that I have years of challenging studies ahead of me, but I am certain that this process will be well worth it!"
