Doors of Learning
The Technion offers three- and four-year undergraduate programs leading to a BSc in engineering or science. Architecture demands five years. An MD is conferred after six years of study and one year of internship, with a BSc in Medical Sciences awarded after three years.
Gifted students may apply to the Excellence Program where scholars follow a personal academic program of study and research. The Center for Pre-university Education (mechina) provides a second chance to students who do not meet Technion’s entrance requirements. Equal opportunity programs prepare new immigrants, demobilized soldiers, and minority groups for Technion’s rigorous curriculum.
All faculties offer advanced degree courses including Master of Science (MSc), Master of Engineering (ME), Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). Interdisciplinary graduate studies are offered in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Polymer Engineering, Quality Assurance and Reliability, and Systems Engineering.
