Technion Cornerstone Centennial.

In April 1912 the cornerstone was laid for the first Jewish university in the Middle East, the Technikum later to be called Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.

The Technion opened its door for the first students in 1924 and the engineers and scientists educated there were instrumental in building the country.
