Technion and Cornell University Open Joint Campus in New York

September 14th, 2017

We are immensely proud to have introduced Cornell’s president to Technion’s in 2010 on the AJC Project Interchange University Presidents seminar. The new joint campus brings together the mastery of Technion, which is synonymous with the “start-up nation,” and Cornell’s long-standing expertise in engineering and computer science. The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and Cornell University inaugurated their joint campus on New York City’s Roosevelt Island Sept. 14 as part of their academic partnership, which began six years ago. In 2011, the collaboration was named the winner of then-mayor Mike Bloomberg’s visionary applied sciences competition, the goal of which was diversifying the economy and creating a national hub for tech. The brainchild of this initiative was the Technion-Cornell Institute, a cornerstone of Cornell Tech, which is a graduate school of Cornell University. Read more here.
