New York City announced the Technion-Cornell initiative in December 2011 with the goal of creating an unmatched engineering campus on Roosevelt Island, which lies between Manhattan and Queens along the East River.

Technion President Dr. Peretz Lavie told this past February that the school’s strategic goal is “to be among the 10 leading technical universities in the world, joining such schools as MIT, Cal Tech, Stanford, and Georgia Tech in the United States, and the leading universities in Europe, Asia and India.”

The July 9 Business Insider list was “compiled by canvassing engineers, industry professionals and entrepreneurs who work at some of the most popular technology companies,” according to its website.
