Student Experiences

Shumon Mori, Japan

Shumon Mori W120“I am a Japanese citizen with a BSc of Physics from Technion. The five years I studied at Technion were wonderful! I first learned about Technion over the Internet. As I heard, studying in Technion was not easy, but my friends, teaching assistants, and professors helped me with full kindness, and constantly encouraged me.”

Ari Teger, USA

Ari Teger w120“The small classes let me develop a close relationship with the other members of the TIS program and academic staff. This unique relationship and the support it offers helped develop my academic skills. The extracurricular activities and the trips are fun and educational. I am looking forward to learning new subjects in the next four years.”

Ilan Melchior, Denmark

Ilan Melchior w120“I decided to study at TIS because I liked the idea that I could study in Israel in English without being fluent in Hebrew. I think that the best part of the program has been living with people from different countries and cultures. TIS has done everything so we would feel comfortable here and for that I’m very grateful.”

Salvador Bentolila, Venezuela

Salvador Bentolila w120“When I heard about the international program with a chance of studying in English at one of the top engineering universities in the world, everything changed for me. I have enjoyed making new friends from the program and getting to know Israeli students studying in the same building as ours during our first semester.”

Fjordi Bisha, Albania

Fjordi Bisha w120I heard about TIS from a friend in Albania. The best part of TIS is gaining new friends from 30 different countries, having new experiences, experiencing new cultures, meeting new people, a new way of life, having a lot of fun and the most important ̵ studying.”

Akshay Vajpayee, India

Akshay Vajpayee w120“I chose Technion because of the expertise of Israel and Israeli universities in high end research and development projects, which are a prime objective of mine. TIS is very lively compared to the rest of the Technion. The individual attention that is given is remarkable. I have a great opportunity to meet completely different societies and cultures.”Ashkay has been accepted to graduate studies at Stanford University.

David Goldberg, South Africa

David Goldberg w120“Wanting to be in Israel and to study engineering, I was naturally drawn towards the Technion. I love travelling and meeting people from all over the world and here, I’ve met so many interesting people from diverse backgrounds and nationalities. I love Israel and its people. I am proud to call Israel my new home.”

Shayma Sharif, Beit Hanina

ShaymaSharif_w120“Whenever people hear where I’m studying they say, ‘Wow, you’re a Technion student,’ and it’s an amazing feeling. My relationships with the professors here are excellent; their doors are always open to us. At Technion I met the beautiful side of Israel, and at the International School I had a feeling of being exposed to the world – close to home.”

Alex Bouaziz, France

AlexandreB_w120“I came to study at Technion International because I wanted to study in Israel, at an excellent engineering school. My experience here has been wonderful. I benefited from a supportive environment and made good friendships. In Paris I never had non-Jewish friends and here in Israel I’ve made several.”
Alex has been accepted to graduate studies at MIT.

David Debash – Italy

DavidDebash_w120“We were the first class of the International School, a melting pot of students from a variety of cultures from around the world. It took us a while to get to know each other and bond as a group, but today we are a family. Thank you Technion for this unforgettable period.” David Debash was the valedictorian of the 2013 graduating class of the B.Sc. program in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Chana Haboucha – Canada

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“What a difference the past 6 months have made: I’ve gained the confidence to speak despite my mistakes, and to conquer the language block I experienced in my first days here at Technion. Barely a day goes by where I am not encouraged by a stranger, to sit down for a cup of tea or coffee.
This is what I love about this country – no matter how busy someone may be, they will take the time to comfort and encourage a (sometimes lost) little Canadian.”

Yuting Wang, China

“The Technion inspires the student to think and explore by themselves. It never restrains different thoughts, but helps to realize them.” Yuting is a graduate of the BSc program in Civil Engineering. She is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University.
