Why study Math at the Technion?

Established in 1912, the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology is one of the world’s most distinguished institutes for science, medicine, and engineering.

Home to 60 research centers and 19 academic departments, the Technion has around 600 active faculty staff, including three Nobel Laureates. Its main campus, Technion City, is a hub of research and teaching and is home to over 12,850 students who live, work, and play in its scenic surroundings.

Technion City provides over 3,850 housing options for its diverse student body. The campus is designed to feel welcoming and friendly, where students can receive the highest-quality health and welfare services in a safe and secure environment.

The vibrant, beautiful, and dynamic city of Haifa awaits off-campus, with its rich cultural activities, Mediterranean beaches, hiking and biking trails on Mount Carmel, and much more.

The Faculty of Mathematics at Technion is committed to excellence in teaching and research, with faculty members receiving the Yanai Prize for outstanding lecturers annually. As an academic unit, we were the first to receive this prestigious award in 2013.

Our students are encouraged to become independent and innovative thinkers, well-equipped to face the challenges of the 21st century in academia, industry, and high-tech careers. Our faculty takes pride in providing a warm and nurturing atmosphere, with academic and administrative staff giving personal attention to every student. We ensure that our students receive all the support they need, both 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"
