3,198 students completed their bachelor's degrees in engineering in 2012-2013 which is a small increase over the number of graduates for the 2011-2012 school year.
Compared to the 2011-2012 school year, the number of graduates in civil engineering and construction related specialities increased by 15%. For the first time in several years, the number of graduates in civil engineering has surpassed the number of graduates in mechanical engineering, which shrank by 5% compared to 2011-2012. The number of graduates in computer and electrical engineering is more or less the same as last year and in other disciplines there was a slight reduction in the number of graduates. Table 1 shows the number of graduates according to their bachelor's specialization.
