Study Abroad

Study Abroad




Study Abroad is offered in both the Winter and Spring Semesters.  

The Study Abroad program at Technion is open to undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world. It provides international students with a unique opportunity to experience engineering excellence at one of the world’s most innovative universities, while preparing them to excel in their future academic and professional careers. The Study Abroad program is offered through Technion International and is taught in English. The Program offers a challenging and intensive course load that can be tailored to meet each student’s specific interests as well as ensuring their ability to meet specific prerequisites or course requirements for their home universities or prospective graduate or advanced studies. Courses are offered in fields of:

  • Engineering and Science
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Architecture and Product Design
  • Humanities

Students may also enroll, for an additional fee, in a conversational Hebrew course. Students with sufficient language proficiency may be eligible to take regular Technion courses taught in Hebrew.

Student Life: Trips & Social Activities

International students will easily integrate to student life at Technion, which supports a large multicultural student community. On campus you’ll have access to a wide range of sports facilities (including an Olympic sized pool), and participate in social and cultural programs, lectures and trips around Israel to enrich your study abroad experience. You’ll be invited to an Orientation day, designed to get you acquainted with peers and living essentials in Israel.

Orientation Day

Technion International provides a comprehensive orientation day designed to familiarize students with the campus and surrounding neighborhoods, and to provide a general guide to student life in Israel. Orientation presents you with such “survival tips” as acquiring a student card, email account and internet access code, opening an Israeli bank account, getting a cellphone, and getting around the sprawling Technion campus and your dormitory.

Conversational Hebrew for Beginners

Technion International, together with the Department of Humanities & Arts, offers a beginner’s conversational Hebrew language course for international visitors. The course is offered each semester and is open to all students and visitors to the Technion (including postdocs, sabbatical visitors and spouses of visiting scientists). Students will learn the Hebrew letters, vocabulary and basic language and grammar structures, and will acquire elementary reading, writing and communication skills to use during their visit. The course will be taught during the semester.

Course Duration: 14 weeks (4 academic hours each week, taught in the afternoons).

Cost: NIS 1,100.
