TECHNION – ISRAEL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Home to three winners of the Nobel Prize in Science, Professors Aaron Ciechanover and Avram Hershko in 2004 and Professor Dan Shechtman in 2011, Technion enjoys a worldwide reputation for its pioneering work in nanotechnology, computer science, biotechnology and medicine.
Today, 105 years after its start, Technion’s over 100,000 graduates comprise the majority of Israeli-educated scientists and engineers, constituting over 70% of the country’s founders and managers of high-tech industries. Two thirds of the Israeli companies listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange were either founded by or led by Technion graduates. Due to the ingenuity of Technion alumni, Israel is now home to the greatest concentration of high-tech start-up companies anywhere outside of Silicon Valley.
Technion is Israel’s first university to begin establishing a new institute of learning outside of Israel. The Technion-Cornell Innovation Institute (TCII) to be born in the heart of New York City is the culmination of part of Technion’s founding vision – to be of service to humanity.
