The secret to the Technion's success
Finally, there is the school's interdisciplinary approach, as illustrated by its research into nanotechnology (nano refers to one-billionth of a metre). Biology students study electrical engineering while engineering students study biology, he said.
Nanotechnology is one area Technion scientists are studying. The institute is investing $100 million over five years to examine ways of manipulating matter on the nano scale.
The payoff could be huge. As Apeloig describes it, nanotechnology could see all the information created by humanity in one year stored on a device the size of a sugar cube; or in medicine, censors could direct drugs to be delivered on a nano scale directly to the area of disease, sparing healthy tissues from the effects of powerful pharmaceuticals.
