The Technion institute is known to be the best in engineering in israel, and indeed the experience I had was really the best. It wasn’t all easy, there were some ups and downs, but in the overall experience I wouldn’t replace it with any other. People there are great, professors and students, supportive and very encouraging. I had too many interesting courses in materials...
