Due to the benefits of the program Gilad managed to finish his B.A. in Math while studying as an academic reservist in the BRAKIM program (first+second degree (with thesis) in Mech. Engineering). The program appointed a special mentor from the Math faculty and helped him finish his obligations.
Gilad published an article about his research in his thesis:
G. Pagi, E. Altus, An Air-Polymer Analogy for Modeling Air Flow through Rubber-Metal Interface, proceedings of the 5th IASME / WSEAS international conference in Fluid Mechanics & aerodynamics (FMA'07), August 25-27, 2007, p. 195-200.
He also spoke about his research in the WSEAS FMA '07 conference, Athens, Greece.
Recommendation to Program participants: "Use the advantages of the Program!"
