International Summer School in Engineering & Science
The Summer School in Engineering & Science is an opportunity for outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate students from all over the world to enhance their academic profiles with a rigorous and challenging academic experience at Israel’s oldest university and premier center for science, technology and applied research.
Students may enroll in one advanced course chosen from a variety of engineering and science fields in addition to one academic course on Israeli culture. These advanced courses are taught by Technion’s top level faculty in English at cutting-edge facilities.
Scholarships for excellent students from China and India are available (not applicable to Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan candidates).
The program is open to senior undergraduate students (approaching Senior year), graduate students (MSc/PhD), and recent graduates.

Students may choose one academic course from the list below. Introduction to Contemporary Israeli Society is a mandatory subject for all students.
Electrical Engineering-Computer Science
Image Processing and Analysis – EE/CS
This course is a fundamental course in digital image processing theory. During the course we explore the basic tools for processing and restoring of gray-level images. We discuss the basic aspects of lossless/lossy image compression and the use of transformation in image processing.
Introduction to Machine Learning– EE/CS
Chemical Engineering – Biotechnology Engineering
Sensors and Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology and sensors is a course for people who are interested in learning about novel sensing tools that makes use of nanotechnology (a technology that relies in the regime between one to hundred nanometers, viz. billionths of the meters) to screen, and monitor various events in either our personal or professional life.
Distributed Space Systems
Course expose the participants to the emerging technology of distributed space systems, a concept of distributing the functionality of a single spacecraft between several closely-flying satellites.
Landscape and Environment
This involves an approach to planning the physical sphere, with an emphasis on its ecological, cultural and social aspects. This comes from a desire to create new spaces, as well as to preserve and rehabilitate existing spaces for people as individuals and as part of society; and overall concern for the environment.
Advanced Inorganic Chemistry
Course will teach fundamentals of inorganic and organometallic chemistry and the impact on catalytic processes.
Education in Science and Technology
The Web as a Learning Environment
This course takes the students through a journey on how learning and instruction have evolved in the past two decades and the challenges facing education in the 21st century. In this course, students will be acquainted with state-of-the-art innovations in digital learning and advanced cloud-based pedagogy.
Upon successful completion of the program students will receive 4-5 Technion academic credits. 2-3 credits for main selected course and 2 credits for Israeli culture course. students will receive Technion academic transcripts.
