About the country

Location of the place

Israel, one of the most developed contries in the area, provides great number of places and events which you can attend and enjoy while staying there!


City of Haifa, located on the North-west coast of the country, is highly developed, but on the other side may show a lot of the history of Israel as well.

Surroundings (possible trips, ...)

Very simple to get to Nazareth, Tel-Aviv, Akko, Jerusalem, etc.
Buses, trains, ships work all week but shabbat day.



Technion - Israel University of Technology.
Progressive, very good equipped facility with number of interesting projects and research works.

Work description

- R&D work within TurboJet Lab
- Jet engine simulations in the application called GasTurb
- Try out to improve efficiency of the cycle by recirculating already compressed air
- Reporting progress and results to the supervisor twice a week

Salary (sufficient for local conditions?)

- Salary was around 90% of the needed amount of money.
- The most important is that the paycheck comes at the end of the first month, so your own budget is needed

Language requirements

- Work: English - Upper intermediate with technical vocab
- Trips: English, possibly Russian

Accommodation (price, who provided it)

Dorms at Technion campus. Aprox. one third of the salary. Provided by IAESTE Israel

Social life

Meeting IAESTE members (pick-up at the airport, organized events...)

The first meeting was arranged at the campus in Haifa. You have to come from Tel-Aviv airport to Technion by yourself (pretty easy) and subsequently you'll be accommodated.
Schedule for events was arranged around 2 weeks before the arrival. Plans were voluntary, you can arrange weeknd trip by yourself.
I feel sorry for our IAESTE guide based on fact she was only one (already worked as well) and we were 30. So sometimes it took time to deal with some issues.

Meeting other foreign students

Thanks the dorms, meeting the other interns was very simple and comfortable.

Sport and culture

Possible to go to gym and swimming pools for free

Food, local specialties

Local food is very tasty, rich on flavours and sometimes fatty ;-)
Examples: Hummus, Falafel, Kubbeh, Shakshuka (Gosh, I already miss it!), etc.
Better to buy ingredients at the supermarket and cook at home, restaurants are quite expensive

Other information

Possibilites to communicate with the Czech Republic

Post, phone, Skype, e-mail

Recommendations for students who will go to the same place

Need to bring your own bed sheet, blanket, pillow and kitchen equipment. Sunscreen at least No.40

What not to forget with you

In recommendations

Benefits of the internship

New view over Israel and the situation in there. Enrichment in culture, history and engineering of course! ;-)
Meeting new people, tried new food and saw something different in comparison to our western life

Cooperation with IAESTE in the foreign country

Very difficult, for example - Confirmation of arrival had to be signed by home IAESTE, even though it should be by foreign one ... but they rejected and didn't want to talk about it anymore

Overall experience with IAESTE

As a member, I can only recommend the cooperation with IAESTE.
