Why Study at Technion?
Students at Technion InternationalFounded in 1912, Technion is the oldest university in Israel. In 1924, the Technion opened its doors to the first graduate student, then in the faculty of Civil Engineering, beginning its the historic task of preparing young men and women to build a new nation. Since its founding, it has awarded over 95,000 degrees and its graduates are cited to have provided the skills and education behind the creation and protection of the State of Israel.

Today, the Technion is Israel's primary science-technology university and the largest center of applied research. It is a major source of the innovation and brainpower that drives the Israeli economy and a key to Israel's reputation as the world's "Start-Up Nation." Its three Nobel Laureates exemplify academic excellence. On December 19, 2011, a bid by a consortium of Cornell University and Technion won a competition to establish a new high-tier applied science and engineering institution in New York City.

The competition was established by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in order to increase entrepreneurship and job growth in the city's technology sector. The winning bid consisted of a 2.1 million square feet state-of-the-art tech campus being built on Roosevelt Island, which will have its first phase completed by 2017, with a temporary off-site campus opening in 2012. The new 'School of Genius' in New York City has been named the Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute (TCII). This is the first time any Israeli university has moved into establishing a center of global advanced research in the United States.

The Institute's 13,000 students can choose from 18 academic departments, and from 65 graduate programs in engineering, science, architecture, medicine and management.

Ranked among the top technological universities in the world, the Technion has a distinguished faculty of over 600 that includes three Nobel Prize-winning scientists. These faculty members collaborate with leading scientists on research projects worldwide. The campus houses 40 research institutes and centers and nine interdisciplinary centers of excellence. Visiting academics and some 400 overseas graduate students provide an international atmosphere.

  • Israel is home to the greatest concentration of high-tech startup companies outside of the Silicon Valley.
  • Technion graduates comprise the majority of Israeli-educated scientists and engineers, constituting over 70% of the country’s founders and managers of high-tech industries.
