Overview

Founded in 1956, Tel Aviv University (TAU) is Israels largest and most comprehensive institution of higher learning and research. It offers 125 schools and departments across the spectrum of sciences, humanities and arts; Israels biggest biomedical research and teaching complex; and 128 research centers. At TAU, interdisciplinary collaboration is a core value of the academic culture. The University leads the nation in the number and impact of research publications. More students prefer to study at TAU than at any other university and college in Israel, and TAU's graduates in the professional fields are the most sought-after in the country.

Mission Statement

Recent independent surveys showed that TAU leads the nation in the popularity and prestige of its study programs, and in psychometric test scores (equivalent to the SAT) of applicants in the toughest fields. TAU ranks #1 in Israel in the number and impact of research publications and #14 in the world in citations per faculty member. At TAU, interdisciplinary is a core value of the academic culture. The breadth of expertise combined with the university`s location in Tel Aviv, nerve center of Israeli industry, business and culture creates ideal conditions for cross-disciplinary research programs. Recognized centers of collaborative excellence are in neuroscience, medical genomics, bioinformatics, biophysics, nanotechnology, renewable energy, Jewish studies, and film, among others. International academic collaboration at TAU is reinforced through ties with top institutions ranging from the NIH, NASA and Harvard to CERN and the Sorbonne. A recent drive to expand study programs taught in English has met with overwhelming response from countries in Africa, Europe, Asia and North America. This year TAU introduced Israels first international BSc in electrical engineering.
