Host University

In 1924, the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Israel's first university, opened its doors and began the historic task of preparing young men and women to build a new nation. Today, the Technion is Israel's primary science-technology university and the largest center of applied research. The Institute's 13'000 students can choose from 18 academic deparments, 53 undergraduate and 67 graduate programs in engineering, science, architecture, medicine and management.

Ranked among the top 25 technological universities in the world, the Technion has a distinguished faculty of 540 that includes two Nobel Prize-winning scientists. These faculty members collaborate with leading scientists in research projects worldwide. The campus houses 42 research institutes and centers and 9 interdisciplinary centers of excellence. Visiting academics and some 400 overseas graduate students provide an international atmosphere.

The Technion campus comprises 300 acres with 86 buildings. The main campus houses classes and labs in science, engineering and architecture. The Technion faculty of medicine is located near the Hafia Bay, adjacent to the Rambam Madical Center.

Since 1927 the Technion has awarded 84,000 degrees. At any given time, the Technion has a strong presence of visitors from abroad.

Destination

Within the colorful mosaic that is Israel, the Technion is located in Haifa, capital of northern Israel. Home to over a quarter of a million residents, the city is considered the gateway to the Galilee. Throughout the years, it has also gained a name for its diversity and tolerance. Haifa has an outstanding record of coexistence among its population of Jews, Christians, Muslims and other minorities, clearly reflecting its cultural and religious harmony.

An hour drive from Tel Aviv, the city is also less than two hours away from Jerusalem. Overlooking the entire northern coast of Israel, Haifa is bordered on one side by a forest and on the other side by the Mediterranean sea. In between, sits a bustling center of high tech, housing giants of both Israeli and foreign industries. This technological hub has spawned some of the world's most important scientific breakthroughs.
