Technion - My Alma Mater

Alumni Connect

August 2019

Anat Levi Feinberg

Dear Technion Alumni,

Do you remember why you chose to study at the Technion? It was probably for a variety of reasons, but most likely one of them was that the Technion was the most prestigious school for science, technology, and engineering with the best professors, or was a place where brilliant minds like yours could thrive.

As Technion alumni, you represent Technion excellence and Israel at its best. You are a part of the Technion brand that has become even more notable with global presence and ranking, supporting the university’s quest to be among the top 10 universities in the world in science, research, and technology.

When excellent education and bold vision meet talented, accomplished, and involved alumni, magic can happen. Collaborations, connections, new initiatives, and relationships are beneficial to all. We are here to help with this vision, building the Technion alumni community around the U.S. as a part of a global network. Our goals are to offer opportunities for you to connect with fellow alumni, to create meaningful experiences, and to re-connect you to your alma mater. You can read about our latest activities in this Alumni Connect newsletter.

I would like to warmly invite you to join us in our upcoming local and national gatherings. Please share and spread the word among fellow alumni in your networks, and help us grow together. It takes a village to build a community.

Wishes for a beautiful fall and holiday season!

Alumni Spotlight: What’s in Your Food? Technion Alum-led Company Lets You Find Out

Growing up on a farm in Israel gave Technion alumnus Dror Sharon an appreciation for real food. Years later, he turned this appreciation into a business called Consumer Physics, a sensor company behind SCiO, the world’s smallest spectrometer. The company specializes in analyzing animal feed to assure optimal composition for livestock.
