​Moshe Tene (1949-2015)​​


The late Moshe Tene

Moshe Tene was born in 1949 and grew up in Haifa. 

After completing his military service in the Corps of Communications, he began undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at the Technion (1970-1975). 

During his studies he worked at the Technion's Vehicle & Mechanical Engineering lab and published several papers.

In 1975 Moshe started a master's degree in vehicle & Mechanical Engineering at Cranfield University, UK.

On his return to Israel he rejoined the Technion's lab, and was involved in the writing of several vehicle standards and specifications.

Later on he joined the police as an Accident Investigator and an expert instructor.  After some time he reached the position of Chief Traffic Examiner.

Moshe Tene was always passionate about cars and mechanics. Ever since he learned to read, he used to study and collect relevant materials, from newspaper clippings as a child, to professional literature as an adult. He also used to visit various conferences and shows abroad.

Moshe passed away in 2015 after a long struggle in Muscular Dystrophy.  He left a large collection of books and magazines about cars and mechanical engineering, most of which is now on display at the Mechanical Engineering library at Technion.
