The aim of this project is to increase Tunisian students’ access to Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue’s Masters of Engineering programs. The project will tackle common issues (i.e. materials recycling, waste recovery, bioenergy) that meet both Tunesia’s and Canada’s research needs. Tunisian engineering students will acquire advanced expertise and specialized knowledge in innovative fields that will benefit the Tunisian job market. This can help fill gaps in technical skills and boost the capacity of Tunisian businesses and industries to innovate and improve productivity. By requiring students to commit to returning to Tunisia at the end of their studies, the project can help stimulate innovation and economic development in Tunisia by enabling students to put into practice the skills and knowledge acquired during their training in Canada.
