Esprit PBL Case Study

  • Lamjed Bettaieb


Since its launch in 2003, Esprit (Tunisian private school of engineering) has been concerned with the striking finding of the non-adequacy of the engineering training with the labour market needs. Indeed, most Tunisian schools of engineering put a strong emphasis on delivering theory-based training, which focused mostly on competencies related to the discipline of engineering rather than other life skills or transferable skills that learners might need when they integrate into the professional world.
