Dr. Yehuda Elimelech, Dean of the Computer Science school at the College of Management Academic Studies in Rishon Letzion, has high hopes for the Jewish State's future as the Middle East's "Silicon Wadi."

Speaking to Arutz Sheva as his students presented their final projects, Dr. Elimelech explained how in order to maintain its edge as a global leader in the field Israel's main challenge is to look ahead - beyond the current trends and demands in the hi-tech industry.

100 student projects were presented Tuesday at the school in central Israel - ranging from cyber security, to robotics, to mobile applications - almost all of them using unique algorithms developed by Israel students.
