Henry and Susan Samueli have made a $2 million endowed gift to establish an exchange program among UC Irvine engineering students, faculty and researchers and major Israeli universities. Two Israeli universities already have signed on to the exchange program with UCI’s Henry Samueli School of Engineering: Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, the oldest university in Israel, and Tel Aviv University, the country’s largest university. The program aims to enhance engineering research and education by providing opportunities for international collaboration.
