WHY ISRAELIsrael has the highest concentration of high-tech companies anywhere in the world outside Silicon Valley.

Haifa is the third-largest city in the State of Israel after Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, and it is known for having some of the best beaches on the Mediterranean Sea. Haifa is also home to MATAM, the largest and oldest business park in Israel, which hosts a large number of Israeli and international high-tech companies, such as Intel, IBM, Microsoft, Motorola, Google, Yahoo, Wix, and Philips.


Technion, consistently ranked among the world’s top 50 academic institutions, is a major source of the innovation and brainpower that drives the Israeli economy. Technion graduates, who represent 70 percent of the high-tech workforce, established Israel’s industrial infrastructure, reinforced its technological defense capabilities, and pioneered its technology-based enterprises that have earned the country its reputation as the world’s “Startup Nation.”


You will stay in Technion International’s on-campus housing. There will be organized tours to various locations throughout the country.
