Technion shines

Israel has three universities in the top 100, closely competing with countries such as France, Germany and Canada. When one considers this in the broader context of country size, wealth, history, age and tradition of universities, and other factors – Israel’s achievement is truly astounding.


Technion’s Ranking: It is important to note not only the current ranking, but comparative trends: are we moving in the right direction? As can be seen here, from the first Shanghai ranking in 2003, until 2011, the Technion was always placed in the 101-150 category, or lower, in the overall rankings. In 2012, we jumped to #78. One might have thought this was a one-time reflection of the Nobel Prize won by Prof. Dan Shechtman in 2011, in which case the Technion would have dropped down in the following year. Given our #77 ranking in 2013, this is clearly not the case, and it is apparent that we have risen to a new and higher level that is more than just a one-time phenomenon.

Technion’s Ranking in Areas Core Competencies: Technion ranks #18 in the field of computer science and #1 in Israel (please note that the ranking is of all computer science activity at the Technion, and not only that of the Faculty of Computer Science).  In the broader categories of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, and in Engineering/Technology and Computer Sciences, we rank #38 and #46 respectively, and #1 in Israel. These subject areas reflect the core academic competencies of the Technion, and our consistently high-ranking in these fields is a significant achievement.

    Studying there was no fun when I was there, four decades ago. There was no time for extra curriculum activities or casual work like it is here in Australia.
