"The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."


ISWiT is an international student festival where students from all the corners of the world are gathered to celebrate differences , make unforgettable memories , spark up interesting conversations and learn along the way.
Organized by the Young Engineer Association of Zarzis, it is the first international student week in Tunisia and in Africa!
ISWiT 2021 will be the second and hopefully the best edition of the festival that first started in the summer of 2019.

The attendees : participants, organizers , volunteers and moderators are all so different , they come from different places , have separate traditions and beliefs and simply look at things in a different light which makes the experience so special and mind opening. Through workshops, close communication and cooperation, interactive lectures and various open activities, students will be able to gain new knowledge and exchange ideas. They will also have an opportunity to establish professional contacts with eminent professors and professionals from different sectors and develop and create new projects by themselves.

Since we strongly believe in the saying :" Be the change you want to see in the world " ,one of ISWiT's main goals is to seek change by developing solutions for existing problems within our community and the world.
