Program Overview

Technion's Summer in Entrepreneurship with Professional Internship is offered through the Technion International School in Haifa, Israel. Technion invites tech-minded students from around the world to an unforgettable summer learning experience at Israel’s premier institute for science, technology and applied research. Students can study with renowned faculty and international peers to earn academic credits or intern at an Israeli engineering or start-up company to gain valuable work experience.

Professional Internships are directed work-study experiences taken in companies and industry sectors common to the Israeli economy. Working as an intern enables students to connect theory with practice and apply the engineering and/or scientific principles learned in the classroom to a real-world professional environment. Completing an internship abroad is an invaluable opportunity to learn about local business and engineering practices and customs, hone personal as well as professional skills and habits, and broaden perspectives. Internships are unpaid positions taken over a period of at least 10 weeks (minimum 200 hours).

Housing during the summer program is guaranteed during the academic period. Technion International will arrange a hostel for you outside of the Technion campus. If you are interested in doing an internship prior to the commencement of the course, then you will need to arrange accommodations on your own. Technion international will be happy to assist and recommend a hostel for you.

You will need to complete both a Maryland study abroad application and the Technion application by the due date.

  • Application Due Date (for students taking courses only): March 15
  • Application Due Date (for students interested in internship component): January 13
