Technology Transfer and Innovation

Through  projects done by our latest year students managed by ours engineers, we develop and manufacture special machines in respect to the customer’s needs. We develop manufacturing process for  competitive companies. We take an active part in research and development of innovative projects for the man and earth. Still, faithful to our first industrial job, we work in advanced sectors of our area : Aeronautics and space industry, medical, research laboratories.
