Technion’s 565 faculty members include three Nobel Laureates in chemistry. Four Nobel Laureates have been associated with the university. The current president of the Technion is Uri Sivan.

The selection of Hebrew as the language of instruction, defeating German in the War of the Languages, was an important milestone in Hebrew’s consolidation as Israel’s official language. The Technion is also a major factor behind the growth of Israel’s high-tech industry and innovation, including the country’s technical cluster in Silicon Wadi.
