Why study Math at the Technion?

The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology was established in 1912 is one of the world’s leading institutes of science, medicine, and engineering. The Technion has nineteen academic departments and 60 research centers, that are home to about 600 active faculty staff, including three Nobel Laureates. Its main campus, Technion City, is a thriving world center of research and teaching, and home to over 12,850 students who study and live on the Technion campus and its surroundings.

Technion City offers over 3,850 housing options for undergraduate, graduate, and pre-university students. The campus is small enough to feel warm and friendly while offering high-quality health and welfare services as well as an abundance of outstanding extracurricular opportunities. New and modern accommodations are interspersed with many green areas.   On-campus, there is a large and modern sports center, as well as an excellent complex of pools, tennis, and futsal courts.  Off-campus, there are many cultural activities and rich community life, Mediterranean beaches, hiking and biking trails on Mount Carmel and much more– all within easy reach, in the environs of the vibrant, beautiful and dynamic city of Haifa.

The Faculty of Mathematics is committed to excellence in teaching and research. Our faculty members are awarded annually with the Yanai Prize, a Technion prize for outstanding lecturers. In addition, we were the first to receive this prize in 2013 as an academic unit. We encourage our students to become independent and innovative thinkers, equipped to respond to the changes and challenges of the 21st century in the academic world, industry, and in high-tech/computer careers.

Our faculty is known for its warm atmosphere and for the personal attention which the academic and the administrative staff give to each and every student. We make sure our students get all the support they need – academically and personally while discovering the beauty and fascination of the world of mathematics.

"A large part of modern mathematics is based on an amazing belief (which is shared by the mathematical community and has a number of outstanding cases to support it) that, even if at first it seems totally abstract and detached from reality–a truly deep and beautiful mathematical theory, will eventually find its way into physics or other applied science. If the previous sentence aroused your curiosity, and you want to know more about how it works in practice, the Department of Mathematics is the place for you"
