24% of young men choose engineering applied specialty, 21% with natural Sciences (physics, chemistry, biology) and only 16% make a choice in favor of medicine. Another 14% are studying computer science and mathematics. Thus, 59% of the Jewish students make a choice in favor of professions, opening the way to high-tech.
Among the Jewish girls, the situation is different. 27% of the student go into medicine, has long ceased to be considered exclusively «male» profession. Another 22% make a choice in favor of natural Sciences. But with computers, mathematics, and engineering disciplines, the stereotype still works. Only 12% of student is ready to do engineering and only 7% are on computer science.

Arab girls by a small margin in the lead of the natural Sciences (38%), but on engineering and computer specialties are only 8% and 4% respectively of the student.
The Arab boys in second and third places are occupied by natural science (20%) and engineering (19%). Computer specialties here are a choice few (12%).
