Location and Culture
Israel is a small nation nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. It contains geographically diverse features and has a unique atmosphere of past and future, simultaneously rooted in its rich history and set on the cutting edge of innovation. Although the country is only about the size of New Jersey and has limited natural resources, Israel is a hub for entrepreneurship, home to more high-tech startups per capita than any other nation in the world. This culture of innovation (or "Israel effect") has been studied worldwide, and makes Israel an exciting place to work and study. Students will be located in Eliat, near the Red Sea.
Past students at the Israel project center have:
- Improving manufacturing processes for a small high-tech company
