Ambassador Dan Shapiro Urges U.S. Collaboration with JCT

At the beginning of December, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro visited the Jerusalem College of Technology (JCT) for a private demonstration of several ground-breaking technologies developed by students at the institution as well as an important meeting about cooperation between American companies and JCT.

“The Jerusalem College of Technology is unique in that it has a diverse mix of students including new immigrants from France and Ethiopia and the Ultra-Orthodox. Every student, regardless of background, is given the support they need to learn and grow,” explained JCT President Dr. Chaim Sukenik.

“It was thrilling for us to be able to show the Ambassador what our diverse student body can produce and how their JCT-powered technologies will change the world.”

The Ambassador was impressed by the student presentations, including an advanced warning security system and an artificial intelligence system that assists individuals with autism, and spoke about the importance of U.S.-based companies developing ties with Israeli academic institutions like JCT.
