The summer camp is expected to attract more than 300 participants, most of whom are engineering students from all around Tunisia.The event includes a new session called “Student Perspective” conceived to let students freely express their ideas and opinions about the impact on society and modern life of engineering.After its remarkable success among attendees last year, a special CV clinic and mock interviews session is organized to let students learn useful soft skills.
