Technion Program for Excellence

Ori Weiner / Physics


First degree in Physics at the Technion.


Participated in the Technion Excellence Program: October 2007- July 2008.


“The program has helped me tremendously when it came to the flexibility of my curriculum. I participated in many courses from the Electrical Engineering department, and took far more credit points than usually allowed. That has enabled me to complete my degree on time”.

During his last semester, Or investigated the effect of electrical currents on the properties of semiconductors based on NiO layers.


Recommendation to Program participants: “The program is filled with interesting people who share similar aspirations. Take the opportunity to form connections with other like-minded students. If you are studying for a science degree, start doing some research as soon as possible. Some students have a difficulty understanding what scientific theories are all about, until they try to do some research on their own”.


Today (2012): Ori is studying for his PhD (direct route) in Physics at Columbia University.
