Technion - Israel Institute of Technology online courses and MOOCs - student reviews
A palm tree planted by Albert Einstein as a symbol of Nobel tradition still stands in front of the historic Technion building in Hadar, an original part of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. After visiting Palestine in 1923, Einstein was so inspired by the vision of a Jewish institute of technological and scientific learning that he founded the Technion Society to support its development. The Technion, Israel’s first and largest public research university, was created 36 years before Israel declared independence to educate the engineers and experts who laid the infrastructure for the modern state. After an intense national debate, it was decided that Hebrew would be the institute’s principal language of instruction. The institute has played a key role in the growth of Israel’s high-tech industry, now the largest concentration of high-tech startup companies in the world outside the Silicon Valley. It has become a global pioneer in fiber optics, biotechnology, computer science, nanotechnology and energy, and it is one of only five universities in the world with a program to design, build and launch satellites. You can explore exciting technological breakthroughs such as nanotechnology, nanoparticles and nanosensors by enrolling in online courses at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, one of the top undergraduate schools in the world.
