(TAP) – “Employment opportunities for engineers are not lacking in Tunisia that endeavours to make the most of its skills in different fields and projects such as the satellite project,” Secretary of State for Higher Education and Scientific Research Ministry Khalil Laamiri said on Wednesday.

“The ministry’s 2018 budget will increase by 30% to reach 65 million dinars in addition to the 50% increase in the research structures and research projects’ budget, from 14MD to 23MD, so as to promote scientific research,” Laamiri recalled at the opening of a forum on “The engineer: the New Engine for Tunisian Economy,” held on Wednesday in Monastir at the initiative of the National Engineering School in Monatir and the “Engineering Students” association.

The scientific research’s problems are not only limited by financing but also by difficulties at the level of budget management as several laboratories do not surpass it due to certain complications at the central level, he said.

In this respect, he stressed that these challenges will be met through good governance and guaranteeing financial and administrative autonomy of universities and higher education establishments.

In turn, Former PM and graduate of the National Engineering School Mehdi Jomaa estimated that the Tunisian engineer must have technical and scientific knowledge and trained in leadership, communication, data exchange, human and financial resources management and team work as engineering is no longer individual but collective.

Employment opportunities for engineers are numerous in Tunisia and abroad notably in light of the technological changes, he pointed out while highlighting the importance to have the spirit of initiative and know how to make the most of good opportunities.

A round table on “the engineer with multiple skills: a new alternative for the Tunisian economy,” was held on the fringes of the forum in addition to the organisation of an exhibition that offered an opportunity to establish contacts between business owners and young graduates and students.
