Israel Institute of Technology Summer School Program & Internship
The Summer School Program & Internship is an opportunity for outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate students from all over the world, interested in enhancing their academic profile with a rigorous and challenging academic experience at Israel’s oldest university and premier center for science, technology and applied sciences.
Students are given the opportunity to take one advanced course in a variety of engineering and science fields. These advanced courses are taught by Technion’s top level faculty in English, at cutting-edge facilities.
Technion invites tech-minded students from around the world to an unforgettable summer learning experience at Israel’s premier institute for science, technology and applied research. Students can study with renowned faculty and international peers to earn academic credits or intern at an Israeli engineering or start-up company to gain valuable work experience.
Courses are offered in a wide range of fields:
Entrepreneurship: Organizations & Entrepreneurship (Introduction to Entrepreneurship); Project in Entrepreneurship.
Humanities: Archeology and History in the Holy Land; Introduction to Israeli Culture
Medicine: Becoming a Doctor; Human Sexuality
Professional Internships are directed work-study experiences taken in companies and industry sectors common to the Israeli economy. Working as an intern enables students to connect theory with practice and apply the engineering and/or scientific principles learned in the classroom to a real-world professional environment. Completing an internship abroad is an invaluable opportunity to learn about local business and engineering practices and customs, hone personal as well as professional skills and habits, and broaden perspectives. Internships are unpaid positions taken over a period of at least 8 weeks (minimum 200 hours).
Upon successful completion of their chosen course(s) and/or internship, students will be awarded a commensurate number of Technion credits.
Students may ask for assistance with finding accommodations in the city of Haifa or may request on-campus housing through Technion International. Please see Admissions for estimated cost of housing.
