  • History & Memorable Moments

The Technion was conceived in the early 1900s by the German-Jewish fund Ezrah, as a school of engineering and sciences, and the only higher learning institution, in then Ottoman Palestine — other than the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem (founded 1907). The cornerstone was laid in 1912, but studies began only 12 years later, following an intense debate over the language of instruction. Ezrah deemed the then-developing Modern Hebrew inappropriate for scientific instruction, and demanded that German be used instead. However, in the aftermath of World War I and the decline of Germany's influence as a European superpower, Hebrew was adopted. [1]

The Technion opened in 1924, although the official opening ceremony took place in 1925. The first class amounted to 16 students, majoring in civil engineering and architecture. During the 1930s, the Technion absorbed many Jewish scientists fleeing Nazi Germany and its neighboring countries. [1]

The Technion awarded its first PhD in 1953 in electrical engineering. Until the opening of the school of engineering in the Ben Gurion University in the early 1970s, the Technion was the only institution in the country offering engineering degrees. [1]
