The Technion’s semester study abroad program in engineering and science is designed to give international students not only a unique academic experience, but also a chance to get to know Israel, the “Start-Up Nation”. Students from all around the world can apply for this program through Technion International. We offer a variety of academic courses in engineering and the sciences, which can be taken as part of a student’s engineering academic track. It is important to note that all the courses offered by Technion International are taught completely in English.

Academic Program

Technion International courses are given at second-, third- and fourth-year undergraduate levels. Some include off-campus activities as well as business and industry site visits. Areas of engineering include: basic engineering and science, civil and environmental engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, and related fields. Additional academic courses are offered in entrepreneurship and innovation, business, and history.

Graduate level courses are also available for those students who meet the requirements. Further information about graduate level courses in English is available here:

Student Life

International students will easily integrate into student life at Technion, which supports a diverse, multicultural student community. You will be invited to an Orientation Day, designed to get you acquainted with peers, student life, and living essentials in Israel. On campus, you’ll have access to a wide range of sports facilities (including an Olympic sized pool) and participate in a variety of social and cultural activities, lectures, and trips to enrich your study-abroad experience. Off campus, you will have all the resources of beautiful Haifa, Israel’s third largest city located on the Mediterranean Sea.

Orientation Day

Technion International’s comprehensive Orientation Day is designed to familiarize students with the campus and surrounding neighborhoods, and to provide a general guide to student life in Israel. You will be presented with guidance on matters such as acquiring a student card, email account and internet access code, opening an Israeli bank account and cell phone plan, and getting around the sprawling Technion campus, your dormitory, and Haifa.

Technion International, together with the Department of Humanities & Arts, offers a beginners’ Hebrew language course for international visitors. The course is offered each semester and is open to students, postdocs, sabbatical visitors and partners of visiting scientists. The course will provide knowledge of the Hebrew alphabet, vocabulary, and basic language and grammar structures. Students will acquire elementary reading, writing, and communication skills to use during their visit.
