Evaluation of the Technion Excellence Programs

The Technion Program for Excellence was launched in 1992 and is intended for undergraduate students in the Faculties of Science and Engineering who have been identified as having exceptional abilities.

The Program offers its participants a personalized academic study program designed to exploit their curiosity and creativity and enables them to focus intensively on particular scientific domains. The Program offers students professional tools and broad opportunities to advance and develop their personal potential, by encouraging creativity, originality, and curiosity through independent study and teamwork.

The goal of this study is to provide stakeholders and decision makers at the Technion with an in-depth analysis of the program, to map out its goals, to describe the contributions and achievements over the years, and evaluate its success. The study employs a wide range of research methods, both quantitative and qualitative. It includes an analysis of various data sources to create a deep understanding of the program. This analysis was performed by comparing the Technion Excellence Program to similar programs in Israel and abroad. A quantitative knowledge base was formulated based on responses to questionnaires and interviews held with students and graduates of the program. This allowed the program’s outputs and achievements to be analyzed and assessed.
