The Technion, Israel's Institute of Technology in Haifa, has announced its intention of increasing its academic staff in all grades and in most faculties and departments. Concerned mainly with the engineering sciences, the Technion is Palestine's only institute for training engineers, and its graduates now account for more than half of Israel's professional engineers. It was founded in 1912. Particular efforts are being made to recruit teaching personnel for the Institute's newlyestablished faculty of science which is responsible for providing a basic knowledge of the natural sciences for engineering students. The science departments, which include physics, chemistry, hydraulics, soil mechanics, electrical, and testing and measurement laboratories, are also faced with the ultimate responsibility for training the country's scientists and for providing Palestine with a center for scientific research.
