At the Technion, collaboration sparks global innovation.

Introducing the world's smallest Hebrew Bible

Learn how scientists from the Technion’s Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute engraved the entire Hebrew Bible on a chip no larger than a grain of sugar, thanks to a generous gift from Joan and Arnold Seidel and family. Click here to watch the video.


A Technion education helps develop the kind of people who start businesses, create jobs, boost the economy—and change the world.


The Technion is facing a severe shortage of dormitory accommodations. A lack of affordable and convenient on-campus housing makes it all the more challenging to recruit first-rate applicants. To remedy the situation, the university is breaking ground on the Undergraduate Student Village, which will be comprised of four nine-story buildings with a total of 116 apartments and 488 beds.

The Technion

This incredible group of researchers, donors and alumni push the boundaries of science and technology further than most dare to dream because they share a common purpose. With mutual respect and affection and an eye on the goal, the Technion Community is able to work together harmoniously to make the world a better place.

Assaf Zinger

Featured Doctoral Student

Students at the Technion wear two hats—scientist and soldier—and Assaf Zinger exemplifies that duality. He is passionate about investigating targeted drug delivery to combat cancer, and is now doing his doctoral studies at the Technion in chemical engineering. But when Israel needs protection, he changes out of his lab coat and into his military uniform. He served this past summer in Operation Protective Edge. Learn More

Professor Ehud Behar is an astrophysicist who led the Technion’s Norman and Helen Asher Space Research Institute for five years. He studies the environments of black holes and high-energy phenomena in stars, while developing instruments to observe the universe. His enthusiasm for space has helped to more than double the number of graduate students studying astrophysics, and to bring the International Space University to the Technion for its annual Space Studies Program in 2016. He has been recognized on numerous occasions and has received the Wolf’s Foundation Krill Prize and the NASA NPP fellowship for visiting scientists among others.
