The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology was ranked first worldwide in preparing students for a “digital revolution” and teaching them digital skills, in a recent survey published in Times Higher Education. The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and University College London both took second place.

In the overall survey, which ranked 150 universities in 33 countries “based on the perceptions of both national and international companies about the employability of their graduates,” the Technion came in at 113, up nine points from last year with the 122nd spot.

The first spot went to California Institute of Technology, followed by Harvard University in second place and Columbia University in third.

Technion President Prof. Peretz Lavie said the Technion rank for digital skills is “a badge of honor.” Lavie said that “in recent years, Technion has placed considerable emphasis on training its students to meet the changing needs of the digital revolution. As a result, Technion’s interdisciplinary research is expanding and advancing by leaps and bounds, in a process integrating life sciences and engineering.”
