Since 2017, all ENIT study programmes have been accredited with the EUR-ACE label ("European Accreditation Standard") through the European accreditation agency ASIIN. This certifies that the standard of teaching and research at ENIT meets the European requirements in engineering. The teaching language in the courses is mainly French, i.e. those who go to Tunis for an exchange with ENIT should have a good command of French.
