August – A Month of New Beginnings

Hello Incoming Freshman!
Ninety-three students from more than 20 countries started their undergraduate degree program this summer at Technion: 28 students started their BSc in Civil Engineering, and 39 students started the BSc program in Mechanical Engineering. This is the first year this program is being offered!



Good Luck and Farewell to Our New Graduates

On August 4, 2016, the fourth cohort of civil engineers graduated from TI’s degree program in a ceremony attended by the Technion President and other distinguished faculty members, family, and friends who came from nearly all four corners of the world: Canada, China, Germany, Israel, Spain, Turkey, USA, and Venezuela.



Neubauer American Program

26 American students from universities all over the US attended the 2016 Neubauer American Program. The semesters were packed with activities and events, from movie nights to trips all over Israel to Student Day events. This year we launched the Neubauer Internship program: Students successfully completed their internships in companies around Israel in various fields.



eBlogging 2016 – To a Great Start

Following last year’s success, Technion International’s new eBlogging has been launched. The online initiative follows the lives of four Technion students: Lindsey (from USA), Eitan (from Chile), Anthony Tombe (from South Sudan), and Dan (from Italy). Lindsey studied a semester at Technion, returned to the US and will serve as a Technion Ambassador at Cornell University. Eitan studied one semester at Technion in Industrial and Environmental Engineering. Anthony and Dan are sophomore students in TI’s BSc Civil Engineering Program.


Asia Activities

Asia Activities

Our one-month summer engineering program, jointly sponsored by CHE and CSC, was attended by some 170 Chinese and Indian students from top universities. In May 2016, a delegation of 25 high-level officials from Guangdong province, P. R. China, visited the Technion for a series of seminars focusing on Technology Transfer and Incubation.

Social Activities at Technion International

Throughout the year, Technion International offers its students a variety of social activities: trips and hikes around Israel; celebration of holidays of different faiths; music shows and visits to theatre & museums; introduction to different cultures around Israel; and lectures on different aspects of entrepreneurship.



Technion School Challenge

In 2016 four teams from schools around the world took high honors in the Technion Jewish Day School Challenge, created jointly by RAVSAK (the Jewish Community Day School Network) and the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. Their mission: to build a Rube Goldberg machine in the spirit of Pesach (and inspired by the intricate 2015 Technion Rube Goldberg machine). For the uninitiated, a Rube Goldberg machine is a contraption or device that is deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion, generally including a chain reaction.  In 2017, Technion will open the competition to High Schools worldwide with the theme: Earth Day




The new Guangdong Technion Israel Institute of Technology (GTIIT) campus is being established as a joint venture of Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and Shantou University in the city of Shantou, Guangdong Province, P. R. China. GTIIT is supported by the governments of Guangdong and Shantou and the Li Ka Shing Foundation. The university aims to become a world-class research institute that promotes education, research, and innovation.
