Give Innovation and Wisdom a Place to Blossom
A one-of-a-kind collaboration between Israel and China
Guangdong Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT) is a Sino-foreign university co-established by Shantou University (STU) and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (Technion). Formally established in December 2016, GTIIT is the first university that brings together the quality Israeli educational resources coupled with the Chinese strength, which makes it unparalleled in China and the world.

Being a university that exclusively focuses on science and engineering, GTIIT explores with great passions and devotes to address significant issues in the 21st century, like clean energy, environment protection, human health. Led by Prof. Aaron Ciechanover, the Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 2004, the academic team in GTIIT is consisted of top-standard faculties, scientists, researchers and experts. Among them, 60% are from Technion and the rest are recruited from around the globe.

Great Location to study, live and work
GTIIT is located in Guangdong Province which is one of the most developed coastal regions in South China that enjoy rapid development in economy and technology. In 2017, Guangdong's GDP exceeded 8.99 trillion yuan (about 1.39 trillion US dollars), ranking first in the country for 29 consecutive years. Guangdong also comes on top in regional innovation capability ranking within the country in 2017. Innovation-driven growth contributes most to the development of Guangdong, which fosters a good atmosphere filled with enthusiasm for learning and esteem to knowledge. As the pioneer in implementing the policy of Reform and Opening, Guangdong opens up possibilities for foreign students to start a new business and make their innovative ideas happen here after their degree study in China. In the aspect of living environment, the pleasant weather and modern lifestyle are running neck and neck in making us a popular destination for students from China and abroad. In 2016, more than 24,000 international students have chosen Guangdong Province as the place to start their study journey in China.
Innovation and entrepreneurial spirit immersed throughout the course
To continue Technion's legacy as one of the world's leading incubators for pioneering entrepreneurs and to equip our students with innovative power and entrepreneurial spirit, GTIIT requires every student to take a start-up course that focuses on issues of Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneurship and encourage students to commercialize their discoveries and inventions. Through these courses, students will learn not only how to establish a company but how to present their ideas of a new product or technology to potential clients.
International exchange opportunity
GTIIT offers students opportunities to take part in international programs during their undergraduate study. These programs include summer courses in the Technion Haifa campus in Israel or one-semester exchange programs there. To further enhance students' global perspective, the local campus of GTIIT also aspires to be an inclusive, vigorous and dynamic community that allows learners from different backgrounds to share their passion for learning and thinking.
Adding value to the university learning experience
Academic study is only part of your university experience. In GTIIT, we are offering you a variety of opportunities to explore your interests and enhance your skills. The student society of Hebrew Language invites our Israeli professors to participate and therefore provides easy access to standard Hebrew for students who wish to further expose themselves to different cultures. In addition, there are many clubs and societies that are run by students and for students. Whether you are an artist, a sports fan or a foodie, there's something for you. And if there isn't, you can always set up your own!
