The first graduating class of the Technion International School received BSc degrees in civil and environmental engineering at a ceremony held on August 4 in the presence of Technion President Prof. Peretz Lavie, former Minister of Science and Technology Prof. Daniel Hershkowitz, and families and friends who came from all over the world for the occasion.
The graduating class included 12 students from Albania, China, France, India, Italy, Peru, South Africa, Spain, the United States, Venezuela, and East Jerusalem. Two graduated summa cum laude and three students graduated cum laude.
Eight of the class are continuing to graduate studies, an indication that Technion not only attracted top students to this pioneering program, but also gave them an excellent education here. Four new graduates will attend the Technion’s Jacobs Graduate School, and four will move to leading international institutions in the USA (Johns Hopkins, MIT, Stanford) and the UK (Imperial College).
