Technion is a thriving nexus in the global scientific and technological ecosystem.
A core team of Technion faculty members is leading the implementation of the university’s globalization strategy. The goal is to expand Technion presence at major research centers, building heterogenic groups of researchers from different countries, establishing joint research groups among the three Technion global campuses, promoting research in fields of global significance, encouraging faculty mobility and developing student exchange programs that will inspire research collaborations. Technion International (TI), in its tenth year, serves as the home of the international student community at Technion.
Technion International manages two full degree programs – Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering – as well as summer programs and student-exchange programs.
Technion American Medical School
Technion’s Ruth and Bruce Rappaport Faculty of Medicine American Medical Program (TeAMS) prepares students for a professional medical career in the U.S., while exposing them to cutting-edge medical research in Israel.
Among Technion’s 2,573 MSc students,
185 are considered international students. Of the 1,155 PhD students studying at Technion, 96 are international. In addition, Technion sends graduate students to present their work at international conferences.
There are currently 231 international postdoctoral fellows at Technion. In addition, Technion sends six students each year to participate in the joint MIT-Technion Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The Zuckerman Postdoctoral Scholars Program attracts the finest postdoctoral scholars from leading universities in the U.S. to Technion.
Each year Technion sends teams of undergraduate students to participate in international competitions, such as Formula Student Challenge, Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), and the International Quarter-Scale Tractor Student Design Competition.
This year, Technion became the sixth member of the prestigious EuroTech Universities Alliance, a network of top-tier research-based universities known for their scientific excellence and vibrant innovation ecosystems. Close collaboration with the other members of the alliance, an elite group of European universities, will help ensure that Technion remains at the forefront of global scientific research.
Technion is part of the European CESAER consortium, and participates in joint programs such as EIT – European Institute of Innovation & Technology.
This initiative serves to establish a global online presence and as a tool to encourage international collaboration. The total enrollment in Technion MOOCs to date is 81,400.
