ENIT-Techniques Avancées course

The ENIT (National Engineering School of Tunis) and ENSTA Paris share the ambition to train very high-level multidisciplinary engineers open to the international context.
As part of an innovative partnership, the two schools have joined forces to develop, in very close collaboration, a common 3-year training course par excellence, carried out in Tunisia and in France, leading to the award of the engineering degree of ENIT and the engineering degree from ENSTA Paris.

Who is the course for?

The course is aimed at students from scientific preparatory classes who have passed the Tunisian national competitive entrance exam for engineering courses.
To enter this course, students must choose the ENIT-Techniques Avancées stream at the end of the competitive exam.
Students who have entered other ENIT courses have the opportunity to join the ENIT-ENSTA Paris training course at the end of their first year of study, after a selection based on academic and motivation criteria.

What degrees does the course prepare one for?

At the end of the three years of training, students receive two degrees:

  • the engineering degree of ENIT, Techniques Avancées stream (or original stream for students entering their 2nd year after a first year at ENIT)
  • the engineering degree of ENSTA Paris

How is the course organised?

The course lasts three years, divided between Tunisia and France.
From the very first day of training, students in the Advanced Techniques stream are enrolled simultaneously at ENIT and ENSTA Paris, and are considered full students of both schools until the end of their training.

The first two semesters of training take place in Tunis: students who enter ENIT's Advanced Techniques program by competitive examination follow a curriculum identical to that of the ENSTA Paris engineering program, taught by ENIT and ENSTA Paris teacher-researchers.
Students then travel to France for the third semester to join ENSTA Paris engineering students in their 2nd year, and spend the fourth semester in Tunis. Finally, the last two semesters are spent in Palaiseau, with the completion of a final year project.

Complemented by a reinforced managerial foundation and an intercultural approach, essential tools in the management of complex projects and assemblies, the teaching is designed to remain close to the real concerns of companies. It gives future engineers the ability to integrate immediately into corporate life, and to master projects from every angle.

Students in this program benefit from a Tunisian government scholarship for the duration of their stay at ENSTA Paris.
