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 for three years, during which it is divided between Tunisia and France.
From the first day of the course , students in the Techniques Avancées stream are enrolled simultaneously at ENIT and ENSTA Paris and are considered as full students of both schools until the end of their course.
The first three semesters of the course take place in Tunis: the students who entered by competitive examination in the Techniques Avancées stream of ENIT undergo a teaching programme identical to that of the engineering course of ENSTA Paris, taught by teacher-researchers of ENIT and ENSTA Paris.
Following this period, the students go to France, where they enter the engineering course of ENSTA Paris before carrying out a graduation project.
Supplemented by strengthened managerial bases and an intercultural approach, essential tools in the management of projects and complex sets, the teaching endeavours to stay close to the real concerns of businesses. It provides future engineers the ability to immediately fit into the life of the business and to master projects from all angles..
