The new school is located on Roosevelt Island in New York City. It is part of the academic partnership which started in 2011 and it will pool professors, research and resources from both the Technion and Cornell.
Three buildings officially opened on Wednesday 13th of September and they are all all of them sustainable and energy efficient.
Cornell University is a longtime established leader in computer science and engineering and the Technion has played a vital role in Israel’s emergence as the “start-up nation”.
“According to the city’s estimations, the new campus will generate up to 8,000 permanent jobs, hundreds of spin-off companies and more than $23 billion in economic activity over a period of 35 years.”
