Technion–Israel Institute of Technology is the oldest university in Israel. It is located in the city of Haifa where a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Baháʼí World Centre, can be found. As a public research university, Technion is one of the leading universities in the country and in the Middle East. Globally, Technion belongs to the top 100 universities according to Shanghai Academic Ranking and the top 500 universities based on Times Higher Education’s list. It was once ranked by the Business Insider as the 25th best engineering school in the world. Technion was also the only non-United States-based school to make it to Bloomberg’s list of schools where top U.S. tech company CEOs graduated from.
The core programs offered by Technion are those in the fields of science and engineering, but it also offers a wide range of programs that cover medicine, architecture, and business management studies. In terms of research, Technion is well-known for its studies and discoveries in the fields of biotechnology, nanotechnology, space science, stem cell science, and more. Among its notable research faculties is Aerospace Engineering, under which students had successfully launched a microsatellite that stayed in orbit from 1998 to 2010, making Technion one of the five universities to do so.
Originally named Technikum, Technion’s establishment in 1912 marked a significant turn in Israel’s history. Founded 36 years before the declaration of Israel’s independence, Technion became the first academic institute dedicated to scientific and technological education, which would play a vital role in rebuilding the Jewish homeland.
Technion’s vision to propel its community and country toward progress has not been lost over the years as it began carving its own mark in the global research scene by pioneering discoveries in the fields of biotechnology, nanotechnology, stem cells, aerospace, and others. Researchers from Technion have been recognized for their contributions, especially in the fields of chemistry, for which Technion researchers have received Nobel Prize awards.
Furthermore, Technion does not only produce notable scientific researchers, scientists, and engineers, but it is also the alma mater of Israel’s tech and electronic business leaders. Based on NASDAQ records, 80% of Israel’s NASDAQ-listed companies are either established or led by Technion alumni. Meanwhile, more than 70% of managers in electronic companies in Israel have Technion degrees.
As a globally renowned center for research and teaching, Technion’s vision remains anchored on the discovery and creation of knowledge for the further advancement of the country and humanity.
