The School of Electrical Engineering at Tel Aviv University hosted Professor Arye Nehorai, doctoral student Elad Gilboa, and ESE undergraduate students Eitan Babcock, Cammi Fleming, Ryan Kang, Anne Kitzmiller, Saba Naghipour, Sana Naghipour, Tommy Powers and Joshua Remba for ten days of technical and cultural exchanges.

The group toured many of the research facilities on campus including the electronic devices lab, the nanotechnology lab, the nonlinear optics lab, the robotics lab, the super-center for brain studies, the signal processing lab, and the zoological garden. Outside of the university, the group also visited three tech companies: Motorola Mobility, Verint and PrimeSense. In addition, they were able to learn about projects being undertaken by undergraduate students at the university.

The trip also presented students the chance to learn about and experience the social aspects of Israeli culture and forge connections with their Israeli peers. The group was able to participate in Yom Hastudent (Student's Day) activities while at the university. Students networked with some of the undergraduate students from Tel Aviv University and not only got to leave the tourist bubble to garner a genuine local experience, but also made valuable connections that enable future collaborations in academic and business spheres.
