Study Abroad Exchange in The Techniyon - Israel institute of Technology
The Technion Israel Institute of Technology was established in 1924 in Haifa. A wide variety of courses are available for students as Technion offers degrees in science, engineering, architecture, medicine, industrial management, education, the social sciences, and the humanities. The University aims to provide a well-rounded technical education that is interwoven with professional ethics, producing leaders sensitive to social and environmental issues. Israel's premier technical university has a student body of about 12,000: 8,500 full-time undergraduates and the remainder graduate.
Studying in Hebrew
Hebrew is the language of instruction at the Technion. All visiting students are expected to acquire some basic knowledge of the Hebrew language. Acquiring basic knowledge of Hebrew before your arrival in Israel is helpful and recommended. Students who do not have Hebrew proficiency are urged to take a five-week intensive Hebrew course (Ulpan) preceding the start of the Winter semester. A student who completes this course should be able to communicate on a day-to-day basis, both on and off campus. Nevertheless, English is the second language and most of the teaching texts which are used in Technion courses are in English. All Technion professors and students speak English and are expected to be fluent in English.
Haifa is Israel's third-largest city. It is a multicultural environment as it is home to Jewish and Arabic communities. The city has a rich history dating back to the Biblical era. Over the centuries, the city has changed hands many times: It has been conquered and ruled by the Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders, Ottomans, Egyptians, the British, and been a part of the State of Israel since 1948. This major seaport city was built on the slopes of Mount Carmel and has a lovely view of Israel's Mediterranean coastline. While the city has the image of being focused on the port and industry, it is the cultural hub of Israel. There are many museums, theaters, and cultural centers where concerts, exhibitions, and other special events are hosted.
