IT provider Ness Technologies on Monday launched a new development center at the Sami Shamoon Academic College for Engineering in Beersheba. Working in conjunction with the Vice Prime Minister's Office and the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, Ness intends to train students during their graduation year, and integrate them into Ness projects, in anticipation of the company's expansion over the coming years. "The selection of Beersheba is based on the high-quality manpower available in the southern region of Israel," said Ness's president, Shahar Efal. The Sami Shamoon Academic College has 3,000 students, of which 50 percent come from Beersheba and a further 30% from the Negev and the south of the country. It was founded in 1996, and is the largest engineering college in Israel. In addition to Ness's project, the college will grant scholarships of NIS 100,000 per annum to outstanding students on the Ness program, on the understanding that the students continue living in the Negev region after they complete their studies. "This is a good day for Ness, the Sami Shamoon College and for Israel's economy, but most of all for the highly talented young people who will be encouraged to build their lives in the heart of the Negev" commented Vice Prime Minister Shimon Peres.
