Israel has long been known for its innovations and technology. Today, Israel Hayom's Noam Dvir reports that two Israeli universities have landed on the list of the world's top 100 academic institutions:
Two Israeli academic institutions appear on the latest list of the world's top 100 universities -- the prestigious 2016 Academic Ranking of World Universities -- issued Monday.
The ARWU, which ranks the world top 500 universities annually, placed the Technion -- Israel Institute of Technology in the 69th spot, up eight spots from last year's ranking of 77th. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem dropped 20 places to the 87th place, ranking below the Technion, but above the rest of the Israeli institutions...
"The Shanghai ranking, the leading ranking in the world, continues to flatter the Technion," said Technion President Professor Peretz Lavie. "I am particularly pleased at the recognition of the Technion's place as one of the world’s leading institutions in the fields of engineering and specifically in the field of electrical engineering and electronics."
"The faculty, researchers and our excellent employees will continue to train and nurture the students -- Israel's future generation."
