Industrial Engineering

Eventual Majors

The industrial engineering program is a rich discipline. it offers our engineers a wide range of skills, whether theoretical or practical. As a result, they acquire specialized skills revolving around mastering the various production processes, perfect knowledge of the supply chain, and mastering IT systems and tools.

The IIT industrial engineer can analyze a real or virtual system, solve its problem to increase its performance. He can implement and design the necessary processes related to the production techniques to meet the requirements defined by the specifications and by the quality standards. Thanks to his skills, our engineer observes, measures, analyzes, and interprets a production activity from the different facets. Then he communicates the analysis which is realized according to a valuable scientific approach.

Besides, our engineers are skilled to manage a production system and to detect its problem. They can choose the most suitable tools, integrate and configure them in an appropriate environment, to set up the most adequate production system.

Because they acquire a valuable background in management, our industrial engineers can implement an intelligent purchasing strategy. They are well equipped with quality and synthesis skills.

Our engineers also acquire know-how in terms of quality, synthesis, and managerial skills.

Furthermore, the IIT industrial engineer plays an essential role in the company because he is well organized, communicates effectively and coordinates accurately between the different members of the team. He brings his expertise to exploit in an optimal way the socio-organizational skills which allow them to better manage themselves physically and mentally, to work and evolve independently while being creative and innovative. Our Linguistic training also allows them to communicate easily with their partners around the world.

In conclusion, our engineers will have the following skills:

  • Competence 1 (C1): knowing the fundamental sciences.
  • Competence 2 (C2): knowing science and techniques for the engineer.
  • Competence 3 (C3): mastering the methods and tools of the industrial engineer’s profession.
  • Competence 4 (C4): improving and managing systems according to international standards.
  • Competence 5 (C5): computerizing data and automating information systems.
  • Competence 6 (C6): research and development.
  • Competence 7 (C7): being able to integrate into an organization, to animate, and develop it.
  • Competence 8 (C8): willing to consider industrial, economic, and professional issues.
  • Competence 9 (C9): being able to work in an international area.

Targeted Activities

In order to optimize the overall performance of the company, the IIT industrial engineer is prepared to be well ranked in the organizational chart of the company to dominate the technical and economic sectors.

Our engineers can design production methods, implement and anticipate actions to optimize a production chain, and implement the information systems necessary to obtain the product. Our engineering students are also trained to bring the best expertise to a production circuit and optimize logistics. On the other hand, we train our future engineers to acquire the spirit of entrepreneurship and to learn leadership and customer-oriented communication.

Thanks to their skills, our industrial engineers are highly demanded recruitment in Sfax which is the first country in terms of the number of industrial companies. Most of these companies, whether SME or SMI groups are launching lean manufacturing.

In this spirit, our engineers are responsible for developing and imagining the industrial process in order to improve production. They should take into account all technical, economic, but also societal and environmental requirements.

Most of the head hunters in rival companies are looking for our industrial engineers and their expertise because they have the ability to manage the organization and the maintenance function. They manage the supply chain from the production phase of the raw material while going through processes, storage, and transport.

In general, the IIT industrial engineer can apply for different positions such as management and production.

Generally speaking, our industrial engineers can work in the following sectors:

Job 1 (M1): industries.

Job 2 (M2): design and consulting offices.

Job 3 (M3): banks, insurance, and health systems.

Job 4 (M4): transport.

Job 5 (M5): energy and petroleum services.

Job 6 (M6): IT and telecommunications companies.

Job 7 (M7): research and development.
