2iE’s ambition: to propose an educational model for Africa’s development.

The African continent is at the heart of an unprecedented dynamic. With an average growth rate of more than 5% over the last decade, Africa stands against clichés and has become a major stakeholder in the global economic competition.

Today, Africa needs decision-makers and entrepreneurs, capable of boosting this sustainable economic development. Creator of added value and employment, 2iE, international institute for higher education and research, whose areas of expertise are Water and Sanitation, Environment, Energy and Electricity, Civil engineering, Mines and Managerial Sciences, supports this trend. By strengthening students’ innovation capacity and entrepreneurship spirit, 2iE trains tomorrow’s responsible decision-makers and contributes to the sustainable development of the continent. Thus, 2iE’s graduates are above all «entrepreneurial engineers », in touch with the African sociocultural and economic realities.

2iE’s young graduates will benefit from the Technopole expertise to launch their innovative and ecological business projects. International contact and service platform supporting innovation in Africa, the Technopole liaises 2iE with the private sector, research and the academic world. The entrepreneurial-engineers training device is made up of a training cycle for all 2iE’s technical and managerial sciences, a technological incubator and a business nursery, supported by research means and our partner network.
