For more than a century, the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology has been a pioneer in science and technology education, delivering world-changing impacts benefiting the State of Israel and the world.
Proudly a global university, the Technion has a presence on three continents: Haifa (Israel), New York (USA), and Shantou (China). The Technion’s unique focus on interdisciplinary education challenges students to think differently about the world’s problems, preparing students to become the next generation of global innovators.
That approach doesn’t stop at the classroom. The Technion has long leveraged interdisciplinary collaborations to advance breakthrough research and technologies. As a result, Technion people, ideas, and inventions make immeasurable contributions to the world every single day — “from new ways to detect and treat cancer to sustainable energy and biofuels to quantum computing and breakthroughs in computer science.”

Leadership at the Technion
Professor Uri Sivan is the 17th president of the Technion, a post he has held since October 2019, and a renowned physicist with expertise in nanotechnology. In 2005, he was named the founding director of the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI) at the Technion, which spearheaded Israel’s nanotechnology program and helped to position the country as a leader in the field. Professor Sivan served as founding director of the RBNI through 2010.
He focuses his work on quantum physics and the harnessing of molecular and cellular biology for the self-assembly of miniature electronic devices. In 2017, his research helped launch an Israeli startup in the field of single-cell analysis for cancer diagnostics. He also co-created the world’s tiniest Bible, engraving the Old Testament onto a gold-plated silicon chip the size of a pinhead.
