10 Unforgettable Facts You Didn’t Know About the class of 2017
Shenkar Institute for the Innovation and Research of Design in Israel bestowed for the second time it's Bachelor's graduates and graduates of the Masters Program this year. In order to find out what makes this generation of engineers, designers, and artists unique, we sent them a questionnaire full of questions about themselves and their final projects. We synthesized their answers for you below in “10 Unforgettable Facts You Didn’t Know About the class of 2017”
Amongst them are students from Iran, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan - and these are just the nations that rhyme with “Khan”.
Let us pay our respects to the 5 men who chose to study Jewelry Design (1), Textile Design (2), and Interior Building & Environment (2), and to the 7 women who chose to study Electrical & Electronic Engineering.
43 is the age difference between our oldest and youngest graduates, 65 and 22 respectively. The average age of our 2017 graduates is 29 years old.
2017’s graduates created some very large projects. How large, you ask? Imagine a fridge - now, imagine something larger... About the same amount of projects belong to entirely different dimensions, made of a trillion bites or a million pixels. In the faculty of Jewelry Design, Visual Communication, and Polymers & Plastics Engineering, one can find projects so small that they can fit into your pocket.
Some of Shenkar’s 2017 graduates arrived here after studying Mechanical Engineering, Audio Engineering, Mathematics, Informatics, Economics, Expedition Guidance, Psychology, Biology, Accounting, Yoga, Landscape Architecture, Makeup Art, Photography, Anthroposophy, and even Diamond Evaluation - and we all know diamonds are forever.
“I once accidentally showered with a squirrel; When I sing, tears come down my eyes; When I was a toddler, I was in a Pampers commercial; I am the Israeli Sailing Champion and received second place in the World Sailing Championship; I am a fan of royal ceremonies; I only begin my work at every round hour or every half hour on the mark; I once sang with Iggy Pop on stage in the Tel Aviv Convention Center; I love magnets in a way even I cannot explain; I’ve never learned how to ride a bike yet I have an APC tank license; I studied agriculture in high school with a specialty in dairy farming; I can’t wink; I lived without a cellphone for two years and tried to communicate with my partner through telepathy when I didn’t have internet (and sometimes it worked!)”
And that’s it folks - now you can throw your hats in the air because you just graduated from Shenkar!
