It is a higher private education body approved by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. It was inaugurated on August 23, 2012.

We aim to:

- propose an innovative educational system which is inspired from the North American model

- build national and international partnerships with universities and schools - Develop the necessary skills for Tunisian and international engineering students particularly in the domains of analysis, problem solving and critical thinking while constantly looking forward for innovation.

- answer the requirements of regional and national companies by weaving partnerships with them


We propose solid training which answers the requirements of the Tunisian job market.

The IIT offers students a constructive environment and an educational program which introduces the practical knowledge needed in the national and international job market.

Our courses comply with national and international standards and designed by recognized experts.

Our teaching staff, trainers, and experts are constantly seeking pedagogical, scientific, and professional updates. Their main objective is to offer our engineering students practical training which positively answers the professional needs.


The fundamental values which led to the creation of the International Institute of Technology are the following:

Cooperation and complementarity:

The IIT signed several agreements with national and international institutions:

The faculty of sciences of SFAX (FSS), the preparatory school for engineering studies of SFAX (IPEIS), the National School of Electronics and Telecommunications (ENET’Com), the Higher Institute of Industrial Management of Sfax (ISGI), the Higher Institute of Computer Sciences and Multimedia of Sfax (ISIMS), The Higher Institute of Technological Studies of Sfax (ISET).

To state a few international universities:

Sherbrooke University (engineering department), the engineering school of computer sciences of France (EPSI), Globe University (United States), Quebec University, Moncton University (Canada), and the Canadian University of Dubai (Dubai).

Research, innovation and creativity :

In scientific research, the IIT focuses particularly on the following domains: renewable energies, environment, IT security, 3D printing, information, and communication. We also created a research, development, and creativity center and a FABLAB.

Also, the institute encourages graduates to launch their start-ups in a competitive environment that’s why we created a business incubator to facilitate their tasks.

Vocational training

In order to strengthen the relationship with companies, the IIT created a center for vocational training « IIT TRAINING ». It aims essentially to train entrepreneurs and students in different areas such as languages and IT. These extracurricular training end with a certificate that is beneficial to their career.


The IIT is recruiting high caliber teaching staff that master active pedagogy and the new teaching methods.

Respect and well-being:

Our institute offers to students and researchers a modern constructive environment and a high-quality atmosphere.
