Enter a new world!
College is the beginning of a new adventure for all students. University years are your first steps into adulthood. Visiting the University and discovering the campus where you will spend some of the most important years of your life is important before you choose your university.
Conscious of the shortcomings of the Tunisian higher education system, the University of Tunis Carthage aims to introduce a new kind of university in Tunis and the region. A university that is student-focused and that can better prepare tomorrow’s university graduates and leaders. Founded more than 25 years ago, UTC is a result of a strong commitment to contribute to improve and reshape Tunisia’s higher education landscape.
While the University’s unwavering mission to train tomorrow’s leaders has always been a priority for our institution, UTC’s main challenge as a private university is to accomplish its mission while constantly navigating a changing and adverse social, economic, and political context. Benefiting from a state-of-the-art campus and infrastructure in Tunisia’s capital, cutting-edge equipment, and a mix of professional and research-producing top faculty, the University of Tunis Carthage, is a selective institution that offers high-quality and student-centered academic programs. All of UTC’s undergraduate and graduate programs are recognized by the Tunisian Ministry of Higher Education but are also aligned with international standards.
Dedicated to pushing its students towards achieving their fullest potential, the University of Tunis Carthage continually nurtures the knowledge and skills of its students with the latest trends through lecture series, seminars, trainings, international visiting progressors’ workshops, business visits, study trips, and customized study abroad programs.
When was UTC founded?
The University of Tunis Carthage is a private university established, in the continuity of “ESIG: Higher School of Computer Science and Management” that was founded in 1993. With more diverse programs and a newer campus, ESIG became “UTC – University of Tunis Carthage” in 2000, opening the institution to new horizons.

Over the course of more than 25 years, UTC has built a strong identity and a reputation for excellence and seriousness.
