Program Details

The Summer School Program & Professional Internship is an opportunity for outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate students from all over the world, interested in enhancing their academic profile with a rigorous and challenging academic experience at Israel’s oldest university and premier center for science, technology and applied sciences.

Technion invites tech-minded students from around the world to an unforgettable summer learning experience at Israel’s premier institute for science, technology and applied research. Students can study with renowned faculty and international peers to earn academic credits or intern at an Israeli engineering or start-up company to gain valuable work experience.

Courses are offered in Entrepreneurship and Humanities.

Professional Internships:

Professional Internships are directed work-study experiences taken in companies and industry sectors common to the Israeli economy. Working as an intern enables students to connect theory with practice and apply the engineering and/or scientific principles learned in the classroom to a real-world professional environment.  Completing an internship abroad is an invaluable opportunity to learn about local business and engineering practices and customs, hone personal as well as professional skills and habits, and broaden perspectives. Internships are unpaid positions taken over a period of at least 8 weeks (minimum 200 hours).

Accreditation:

Upon successful completion of their chosen course(s) and/or internship, students will be awarded a commensurate number of Technion credits.

Housing

Technion International will arrange a hostel for you outside of the Technion campus. If you are interested in doing an internship prior to the commencement of the course, then you will need to arrange accommodations on your own. Technion international will be happy to assist and recommend a hostel for you. Please contact the summer programs coordinator for more information at: Summer@int.technion.ac.il

Social and Cultural Activities

To enrich the learning experience, students will be invited to participate in social and cultural activities both on and off campus such as lectures and trips, including industry visits and tours to major Israeli tourist attractions. Students will also visit cutting-edge laboratories and meet Technion faculty, and they will engage with lunchtime speakers providing in-depth exposure to Israeli and Middle Eastern culture and history. Campus social activities are led by Technion International’s experienced student guides.
