Technion Program for Excellence

Joey Cassell / Mechanical Engineering

About myself: I was born and raised in Ohio (Go Bucks!), where I attended Columbus Torah Academy through 11th grade. At age 17, I came to Israel for the first time to study at a post-high school American Yeshiva program in Jerusalem. After studying for a year, I decided to remain in Israel and join the IDF where I served from 2012 until 2015 as a tank commander in the 7th Armored Brigade. After my discharge from the military, I spent a year studying in the Mechina program at The Technion. I ultimately would like to work in the field of renewable energy.

When did you start the program: Winter 2016.
