Money Money and Israeli Innovation
As Israel strives to maintain its economic independence, it recognizes, as do other nations, that a strong economy depends closely upon the education of its citizens.
The Technion and its graduates have risen to this challenge, providing the creative edge and the know-how to build the economy.
Prof. Albert Einstein's deep involvement in Technion opened its doors in 1924, located in Haifa; Israel has become Israel’s first modern university.
The first undergraduate class consisted of 17 students in two areas of instruction; Civil Engineering and Architecture.
Today Technion graduates comprise the majority of Israeli-educated scientists and engineers, constituting over 70% of the country's founders and managers of high-tech industries. Due to the ingenuity of Technion alumni, Israel is now home to the greatest concentration of high-tech start up companies anywhere outside of the Silicon Valley. 80% of Israeli NASDAQ companies are led by Technion graduates.
Professor Dan Shechtman of the Materials Engineering Faculty received the 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery of Quasiperiodic Crystals – a new class of materials & Professors Avram Hershko and Aaron Ciechanover of the Faculty of Medicine received the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their discovery of the crucial role of ubiquitin in the process of protein breakdown in cells.
The Technion is one of a handful of universities worldwide with a student program to design, build, and launch their own satellites. The Gurwin TechSat II microsatellite was successfully in orbit July 1998 - April 2010.
As The late Prime Minister of Israel Yitzhak Rabin once said "You - the people of the Technion – have led the way in technology, science and engineering."
