A Quality Infrastructure adapted to MEEI

Tunisia provides an infrastructure that meets international standards while responding to the requirements of MEEI:

  • a competitiveness cluster in Sousse, dedicated to the MEEI sector, and more particularly to mechatronics (55 ha), an off-shoring area specializing in services (48 ha) and a multisectoral industrial area (142ha),

  • a training center for aerospace trades in El Mghira which also includes Technology Platforms in sectorial training centres,

  • a Technical Center specializing in Electrical and Mechanical Industries (CETIME),

  • a research center in microelectronics and nanotechnology,

  • 4,500 engineers and senior technicians graduate every year,

  • 8 engineering schools,

  • an engineering school specializing in mechatronics and electronics,

  • 36 sectorial training centres in 14 governorates.

Adoption of a Promotional Strategy for the Sector

MEEI in Tunisia adopted a strategy to promote the sector targeting the rise of the industry and the implementation of structuring technology projects.

More specifically, Tunisia already set the wheels in motion to :

  • adapt skills to the specific needs of the sector (technical training and language training);

  • develop sectors with high added value (precision mechanics, mechatronics, electronics, embedded systems, engineering plastics, composites ...);

  • reinforce investment in quality, R & D and innovation;

  • strengthen the work in synergy in technology clusters (industry, higer education institutions, research laboratories ...);

  • upgrade the structures supporting sector.

A Broad Value Chain for MEEI

MEEI sector produces automotive components for equipment manufacturers, parts for the aerospace industry, household appliances and other recipients.

Tunisian companies manufacture a diverse range of products for these industries including, in particular:

  • wires, cables and wire harnesses

  • switchgears and electrical control devices

  • transformers

  • printed Circuit

  • coils and transformers

  • breakers

  • connectors

  • die castings

  • mechanical parts machined with computer numerical control machines (CNC)

  • clutch disks

  • automobile bodies

  • manufacture of fuel injectors
