Ecole Marocaine des Sciences de l’Ingénieur – EMSI


In 1986, four engineers and doctors, founding members of the Moroccan School of Engineering Sciences, created a 4-year engineering training course to be completed after the baccalaureate. The course, which is designed to meet the evolving needs of the employment sector, is now a Bac+5 course.

Founded 36 years ago, EMSI – Ecole Marocaine des Sciences de l’Ingénieur was the first engineering private school in Morocco. A pioneer since then, EMSI is a center of innovation that has received several international awards recognizing its contribution to the field of engineering.

EMSI is a multidisciplinary engineering school which offers five pillars of training; IT and Network Engineering, Automation and Industrial Computing Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Civil Engineering; and Buildings and Public Tasks. In 2016, the school expanded its offering to include additional study programs in Financial Engineering, Accounting, Control and Auditing.

A strong professional integration is built into the curriculum through regular exchanges with recruitment agencies, career forums, internships, and by a very active network of former students. Each program is adapted on an ongoing basis to reflect the nature of changing technologies, economic needs and the demands of digital solutions within engineering. EMSI has an Alumni of over 16,500 and a network of over 300 companies of which half are partners and companies committed to facilitating the internships to students and their professional integration. The school is present in four cities in Morocco: Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakech and Tangiers.
