About us

The Tel Ran College of Programming & Software Engineering was founded in Israel in 1993. For over 30 years of work, we have prepared more than 5,000 successful graduates for the international labor market and have gained tremendous experience in employing and integrating young professionals. At the moment, about 400 students study at 2 of the Center’s Departments (Rehovot and Haifa) every year. Tel-Ran has a long and strong relationship with companies like JP Morgan, Comm-IT, Initech, Wix, Amdocs, Dell, HP Enterprise etc.

The College provides an opportunity for quality, professional training in Israel for new immigrants and Russian-speaking Israelis.

Tel-Ran is certified by the Ministry of Labor and Economy of Israel, which means that you can receive subsidies for training at the Ministry of Aliya and Integration, Bituah Leumi and Lishkat Taasuka, as well as take advantage of the army severance pay, aka "picadon".
