The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology has marked a major milestone in its partnership with Cornell University. The academic institutes recently opened Cornell Tech, a sprawling tech-focused graduate campus on New York’s Roosevelt Island.
Established in 2013, the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute, which stands behind Cornell Tech, is supported by a $133 million gift from Dr. Irwin Mark Jacobs, founding chairman and CEO emeritus of Qualcomm. Since then, it has become a catalyst for global entrepreneurship and a driver of New York’s emerging tech ecosystem and local economy.
The Jacobs Institute draws upon professors, research and resources from both the Technion and Cornell, a longtime leader in engineering and computer science.
The Technion is Israel’s science and technology research university, among the world’s top ten, dedicated to the creation of knowledge and the development of human capital and leadership for the advancement of the State of Israel and all humanity.
