Presentation of the school

Founded in the late sixties (Law N ° 4161 of 31/12/1968), ENIT is the oldest of the engineering schools of Tunisia. The founder – and first director of ENIT – is Mr. Mokhtar LAATIRI, a Tunisian engineer and senior official. Since its creation, ENIT has continued to be entrusted with decisive national missions. Polytechnic of vocation, it provided to the young Tunisian state which had just recovered its independence, its high technical executives who laid the bases of the civil and industrial infrastructure (electrical production, factories, dams, road networks, works, etc.) . Such infrastructures have largely contributed to sowing the springs of the economic development of Tunisia today.
Similarly, during the 1980s, it spun over some of the youngest engineering schools enriching the Tunisian panorama of engineering education today. Lastly, ENIT has been and continues to be a renewable pool of experts and senior executives of the State, with recognized expertise in the fields of higher education, research and engineering.

Today, ENIT draws on its history and experience ideas and strengths to face new challenges
train more engineers in a context of international competition capable of producing, innovating and undertaking within the framework of the knowledge society,
make a decisive contribution to the creation of an advanced research base in the field of engineering sciences and techniques that has a direct impact on the Tunisian citizen.
A new challenge, new missions. Thus, ENIT, today, conducts three complementary missions:
diploma training for engineers in trades meeting the actual or potential needs of the market, permanent and distance training to sharpen the performance of practicing engineers, research, innovation and transfer of know-how through technological valorization and entrepreneurship.
Departments & industry
The nine (9) sectors of ENIT are: Civil Engineering (GC), Electrical Engineering (GE), Hydraulic Engineering and Environment (GHE), Industrial Engineering (GI), Mechanical Engineering (GM), Computer Science (Info), Modeling for Industry and Services (MIndS), Advanced Techniques (AT) and Telecommunications (Telecom). These nine streams are managed by five departments: Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Information and Communication Technologies.
A selective double-diploma strategy with foreign schools of high repute allows ENIT to keep in touch with competitive systems and students to consider a motivating international opening.
At ENIT, there are 224 permanent teachers, 37% of whom have the highest grades in Tunisian higher education (Professors and Masters of Conferences). More than 170 contractors account for almost 20% of ENIT’s teaching load.
In addition to the initial training of engineers, ENIT has a mission of research and training through research. The latter is conducted within ENIT’s Doctoral School of Engineering Science and Technology, which offers eight (8) doctorates, seven (7) research master’s degrees and three (3) professional masters degrees. It has more than 1000 registrations and is based on the twelve (12) Laboratories and the six (6) Research Units of ENIT. These research structures cover all the specialties of the School and develop research programs related to national priorities (Water, Energy, ICT, etc.).
Openness to the socio-economic environment is a recognized tradition and experience for ENIT. ENIT is a partner of various Tunisian companies – public or private – covering all the specialties of the School as well as the numerous subsidiaries of international companies established in Tunisia. This partnership is reflected in agreements that also cover research contracts or continuing training contracts. ENIT, through the UTM, is a member of the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF). She is also a founding member of the International Conference of Training Institutes of French Expression Engineers and Technicians (CITEF) and the Mediterranean Network of Engineering Schools (RMEI).
ENIT has two (2) demonstrators of electrical production, the first photovoltaic of 45kWc and the second thermodynamic concentration of 60kWc. ENIT has three (3) units of common research services that provide analysis and testing services to students, researchers and businesses alike. These units consist of:
  • A vector network analyzer
  • a universal machine for dynamic and static tests
  • A multi-layer system production unit having a scanning electron microscope, a high temperature optical microscope, a vacuum group, an impedance analyzer, a spectrophotometer and a sputtering.
ENIT also has an Integrated Industrial Production Center (ICIP) containing a flexible assembly unit consisting of a central conveyor, four robotic assembly stations, a referral system using RFID units and a vision system for the control of the conformity of products.
The ENIT library has a collection of more than 32,000 titles, the collection of engineering techniques and access to electronic resources through subscriptions managed by the National University Documentation Center. Scientific and Technical (UNCSTD).
