We hear a lot about TEK-UP worldwide performance in Cyber Security. Is there any indicator for this performance?
Sure. TEK-UP University is a prominent member in the platform Hack The Box (HTB). In March 2023, TEK-UP was ranked first University Worldwide with the best score of the world surpassing around 3’000 universities from over 120 countries.

What about TEK-UP performance in Artificial Intelligence?
Good point. In 2023/2024, TEK-UP students won all rounds of Huawei ICT competition for Intelligent Computing:
1) National Round 1 (TOP 50 among 500 Tunisian)
2) Notional Final (TOP 3 among TOP 50)
3) Regional final (First Prize out of 9 countries, around 3’000 students)
And thus, TEK-UP students have now qualified to the Global Worldwide final Championship in Shenzhen China. Huawei is offering full sponsorship to all three students (flight, accommodation and food).

TEK-UP communicated last year about its performance in the cloud field. Is there any indicator for this success?
Of course. Amazon AWS offered in 2023 a total of 500 prizes to Tunisian students that will reach the best scores in AWS competition. The university which performed best was TEK-UP with its students coming back home with 233 medals.

Is there any performance in the field of Software Engineering?
Sure. Software Engineering is based on Problem Solving. TEK-UP students won the ACM-TCPC several years and were two years in the Arab competition ACPC. One of our students signed in 2023 a contract with Google.

Is it true, that all TEK-UP students can pass any professional certification?
Absolutely. Our students have green light to all international Professional Certifications out of Technology Company Leaders like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, Cisco, Huawei, Nokia, Ericsson, INE, EC-council, Oracle, IBM, Python Institute, Linux Foundation, PECB etc. This drastically reinforces their competence and increases their chances for a great career in an international Company.

What about Internationalization?
Well. Tunisia is a small country. We prepare students for an 8 billion Market, so they can be performing in any international Environment. We have exchange programs with different Universities in Germany, France, Spain and Turkey. Our students are free to move to any country of the world including USA, Canada, UK, etc. Our Diploma being internationally labeled, there is no barrier for our students as free movers all over the world. Every year, around 30% of the cohort is getting involved in an exchange semester. We support our students in the process.

Is there any Scholarship for Elite students accessing TEK-UP?
Indeed. TEK-UP recruits yearly around 60 to 80 students with a scholarship reaching up to 50% of its tuition fees. The selection is based on several criteria, mainly the performance within Baccalaureate and the following two or three years.

Are there any significant milestones within TEK-UP academic year?
Sure. There are some fixed events. Every year, TEK-UP students, teachers, and staff organize the following stops:
1) October: Huawei ICT Competition (Round 1)
2) November: Digital Future
3) December: Winter school (Professional Trainings for Certification Exams)
4) January: Global Game Jam
5) February: Study Trip (Turkey)
6) March: Spring school (Professional Trainings for Certification Exams)
7) April: Digital Congress

Is TEK-UP willing to move to Green Energy?
Sure. We already built on TEK-UP roof a system of 180 solar panels that will make TEK-UP fully green. This will cover 100% of TEK-UP needs and this is our contribution to the ecology and to a green clean Tunisia.

What about the war in the Middle East?
Sorry. I need to correct you. This is not a war. A war is between two armies, two air forces, two navy forces etc. What we are witnessing is a crime against unarmed innocent civilians, Children and Women. The destruction of all Universities and education institutions of all levels in GA’AZA is a crime against humanity.
