In 1938[3] Franz Ollendorff, an Israeli physicist, established the department of Electrical Engineering under the Faculty of Technology. Franz became its first dean the following year. In 1947 the Faculty of Electrical Engineering was established after it split from the Faculty of Technology.[4][5]


Today, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering is the largest faculty in the Technion with over 2,000 undergraduate students and over 400 master and doctorate students. The faculty consistently ranks among the top 10 Electrical and Computer Engineering faculties in the world.[1][citation needed]
