Program Description:

Technion - Israel Institute of TechnologyTechnion

The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology is a public research university in Haifa, Israel.  Founded in 1912, it is the oldest university in Israel, although classes did not begin until 1924, and offers degrees in science and engineering, as well as related fields such as architecture, medicine, industrial management and education.The Technion witnessed Israel's "battle of the languages": an intense debate over the language of instruction which ultimately influenced the official language of the State of Israel some thiry years later.

In 1923 Albert Einstein visited and planted the now-famous first palm tree, as an initiative of Nobel tradition. The first palm tree still stands today in front of the old Technion building. Einstein also founded the first Technion Society, and served as its president upon his return to Germany.

The Technion has 18 academic departments and some 50 research centres. In December, 2011, a bid by a consortium of Cornell University and Technion won a competition to establish a new high-tier applied science and engineering institution in New York City.
