Weizmann Institute of Science
The Weizmann Institute of Science (מכון ויצמן למדע) is an institute of higher learning and research in Rehovot, Israel. It differs from other Israeli universities in that only a graduate program is offered, and only in natural sciences.
Originally founded in 1934 by Chaim Weizmann as the Daniel Sieff Research Institute, it was expanded and formally rededicated as the Weizmann Institute of Science on November 2, 1949. Following further expansion and the accreditation of a graduate school, it is now best described as a research university. It presently has about 2,500 students, staff, and faculty, and offers M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, as well as several interdisciplinary programs.
