Program Overview

Program Description:
The Study Abroad program offered through Technion International is open to undergraduate and graduate students from all over the world. The program offers a challenging and intensive course load that can be tailored to meet each student’s specific interests as well as ensuring their ability to meet specific prerequisites or course requirements for their home universities or prospective graduate or advanced studies.

Courses are offered in fields of engineering and science, entrepreneurship and innovation, medicine and humanities. Courses are given at the second, third and fourth year undergraduate levels. Some include off-site activities as well as business and industry site visits. Choose 1 or 2 semesters: Winter Semester: October-February Spring Semester: March-July Full-time students typically take around 15 - 20 credits per semester. One academic lecture hour (50 minutes) equals 1 credit point. Each semester is comprised of 14 weeks of teaching, followed by a 3 week exam period. Students with sufficient language proficiency may choose to take regular Technion courses taught in Hebrew. Please note that the maximum study load for visiting international students cannot exceed 4 technical Technion courses and 2 general Technion courses (in Hebrew) during one semester; experience has shown that taking classes in Hebrew poses special challenges to international students, even if the students have some background in Hebrew. This general rule does not apply to international semester programs. Technion International, together with the Department of Humanities & Arts offers a beginner’s conversational Hebrew language course for international visitors. The course is offered each semester and is open to all students and visitors to the Technion. Technion International provides a comprehensive orientation day designed to familiarize students with the campus and surrounding neighborhoods, and to provide a general guide to student life in Israel. Orientation presents you with such “survival tips” as acquiring a student card, email account and internet access code, opening an Israeli bank account, getting a cellphone, and getting around the sprawling Technion campus and your dormitory.

Technion offers an academically rigorous and engaging curriculum with English language courses in a variety of subjects. Technion's internationally recognized and respected reputation ensures that credits earned will significantly enhance students' academic and professional CVs. At the same time, students will benefit personally from an exciting study abroad environment and a chance to explore Israel and meet peers from around the globe.
