Macromedia is an academic institution with 8 campuses in 8 cities in Germany, as well as a member of the international education group - Galileo Global Education - which operates a network of 45 schools and universities with approximately 120,000 students on 85 campuses in 13 countries around the world. The university is digital and combines both frontal and online studies.


Prof. Eduard Yakubov, HIT President, provided an overview of HIT’s academic programs and research activities. He spoke about the close relationship that HIT maintains with Israel’s industry and the community-at-large. "We are proud to have earned the title of being the 'academy of industry’, engaging in diverse collaborations with the top corporations in Israel. Our students graduate well-equipped to embark on their professional careers and gain significant job experience during their studies," said Prof. Yakubov.


During the visit, Dr. Nava Shaked, Head of the School of Multidisciplinary Studies, presented the content and unique perspective of the School. "Multidisciplinarity is a cornerstone of our institution. Every student studying at the Institute, at some point or other in their academic pursuits, takes part in multidisciplinary courses offered by the School. At any given time, you can find a design student working next to a computer science student sitting together with an electrical engineering student, and sharing and exchanging their knowhow" said Dr. Shaked.

Prof. Castulus expressed interest in multidisciplinary ventures and even noted that this is indeed his first visit to Israel, but certainly not the last. "Our two institutions have a lot of similarity in its DNA, and I believe that there is a firm basis here for ongoing collaborations." 

HIT-Holon Institute of Technology is proud to take part in international efforts with a multitude of academic institutions and research institutes all over the world. The Institute cooperate with 130 academic institutions in about 35 countries.

Participating in the Visit from HIT: President, Prof. Eduard Yaakubov, Dr. Nava Shaked, Head of the School of Multidisciplinary Studies, Mala Breslavsky, Director of the Innovation and International Research Authority, Ira Ivshin Guetta, Head of the International office and Oren Simanian, Lecturer in Entrepreneurship.
