Shenkar College: A peek inside Israel's premiere design school
"Shenkar is a very unique school," says Prof. Yuli Tamir, president of Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, on introducing a new exhibit about the Ramat Gan-based school.
"It combines art, design and engineering. What is so special about this event is really a lot of people come here to see the state of the art. This is an opportunity to see the beautiful young creative side of Israel, the side we are very proud of. This is Israel at its best."

Deli Delatore, a graduate of the fashion design school, says, "Shenkar College is the kind of place that pushes you to your limits." 
But in the opinion of teacher Marlin Nowbakht, the creative push comes from the students themselves: "I think Israeli students are very targeted on what they do....They're pushing the boundaries of their thoughts. They don't accept every answer as it is. And there is a lot of creativity within that breaking-the-boundaries kind of approach."
