The Atudai Program (IDF Academic Reserve) was designed for students who choose to defer their IDF service in order to complete their academic studies at JCT first and then with their learned skills serve in the army as trained high-tech and engineering professionals.  Many Atudai graduates are sought after candidates for top intelligence and research positions in the IDF. 

The Atudai track is a 10-year program, consisting of four years of academic studies, followed by six years of military service in the IDF as officers in cutting-edge high-tech areas. After the 10 years, graduates can either remain in the IDF as career officers or go on to have highly successful careers in high-tech, business, public service and academia.
