From the President
Welcome!
 
We opened the 2014-15 academic year with some 14,000 students, including 2,185 "freshmen", who will be enjoying a unique learning experience as well as an upgraded and extended network of Technion City dorms. This includes a diverse mosaic of talented young people from across the world and from all walks of life. In addition to an array of programs in English, Technion also launched its second class of freshman students in Russian - a program designed to support an easy transition to undergraduate studies in Hebrew.
 
At Technion, togetherness is the guiding light. We seek togetherness on all levels, whether in sports, interdisciplinary studies, research or global collaboration. Togetherness is one of the key words that has helped Technion, as Israel’s first university, truly empower the thriving center of innovation which is Israel today.
 
In work and in play, in peace and in the pioneering of our shared global future, Technion is lighting the way, as you will find out in some of the amazing stories below.
 
If we want it, it is not a dream. Happy New Year, from all of us at Technion.
 
Technion President
Prof. Peretz Lavie

Technion International
Presents the Future of STEM

As part of the Technion’s activities in China, Technion International and the Technion Department of Education in Science and Technology has developed “Innovation Education Facing the Future,” a high school principals and teachers seminar on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education.

Technion International
Visits India 

Technion International took part in an Israeli delegation to India in December 2014, which consisted of 5 representatives from Israel’s top universities. The delegation visited Indian universities, colleges and high schools in Mumbai, Delhi and Pune.  The purpose of this delegation was to increase awareness of Israeli higher education opportunities among highly qualified Indian students.

Postdoctoral
Look Out For More Postdocs!

Get ready for more international postdoctoral students on campus! Technion International has launched its new Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.
The facility will serve 130 international postdoctoral scholars conducting research at the Technion, as well as Technion faculty members.

Buddy Up!

Just in time for the holiday season! International students studying at the Technion had the chance to partner up with an Israeli student buddy in a new program developed by Technion International. In this initiative, the buddies meet for activities and events which help international students integrate into the student body at the Technion and acclimate to their new environment.

Freshman Year
Russian Study Program

The start of the new academic year at the Technion has began with twenty-seven freshman year students from FSU countries enrolled in its Russian study program – they represent the second cohort of this unique program. At the opening ceremony, held on November 5, two of last year’s graduates, Polina Soloveichik and David Shpilfoygel, spoke about their experiences.
