About University:

The Technion - Israeli Institute of Technology

The Technion is the oldest university institution in Israel and has had a decisive influence on the scientific-technological development of the State of Israel and its transformation into a global power. At the Technion, approximately 14,500 BA and Master students are engaged in 18 engineering and scientific research faculties and units. Fifty-two different research centers and institutes operate in the Technion in various fields.

Founded in 1912, the Technion is one of the top 100 universities in the world according to the prestigious Shanghai University and has earned itself a world-renown for its pioneering work in many fields: nanotechnology, life sciences, stem cells, water management, sustainable energy, information technologies, biotechnology, materials engineering, aerospace, and industrial engineering and management. The Technion is one of ten universities globally that built satellites and launched them into space.

Recently, the financial information firm Bloomberg surveyed the major tech companies in the US to see what universities the CEOs studied. The Technion is ranked 7th globally, sharing it with MIT University. The Technion's importance to the State of Israel is also evident in its impact on Haifa's surroundings, where the Technion is located, where companies such as Qualcomm, Google, Microsoft, IBM, Apple, and Intel have their development centers and their main offices in Israel.

In December 2011, the Technion and Cornell University was selected by the New York City Council, led by Michael Bloomberg, to establish the Innovation Promotion Institute - Jacobs Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute (JTCII), on Roosevelt Island in New York. The establishment of the Guangdong Technion Institute of Technology in Israel in China in 2013 proves the Technion's international importance.
Technion graduates have an essential impact on the global economy through advanced technologies they have developed and leading global companies to impressive commercial successes. About a quarter of the Technion's graduates have formed companies or have held senior management positions in large international corporations. The annual revenues of high-tech companies run by Technion alumni are $18.6 billion. Also, a quarter of Technion graduates have filed for patent registration on their behalf. Technion graduates and faculty have led developments such as "Azilect" - a drug that inhibits Parkinson's disease, drip irrigation, and the missile defense system - "Iron Dome."
Over the past decade, three Technion professors have won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry - Abraham Hershko and Aaron Chachnover (2004) and Dan Schechtman (2011)."
