The IST

Word of the Director

Burkina Faso, our country, has been experiencing a mining boom for a few years. To support this development of the mining sector and enable our country to benefit from it, it is essential to train human resources adapted to the needs of this emerging sector.

The IST, in its mission, proposes to accompany the State in the training of highly qualified human resources. In this perspective, it has already committed to innovative training opportunities: biomedical engineering, food engineering, industrial engineering, environmental engineering and management sciences.

Continuing its momentum, the IST is preparing to make available to its customers training offers just as innovative as audacious, always in the spirit of its mission.

Hoping all these innovations will be at your convenience, I wish you all the best and wish you a pleasant time on our website istburkina.com

Background and Mission

It is increasingly recognized that the development of Africa requires the qualification of its human resources. It is in this sense that vocational training seems particularly important in an environment marked by globalization and competition. The IST, which is a technical and vocational higher education establishment created in the form of a Private Law LLC by five partners (three engineers and two managers), approved by the State of Burkina Faso, is part of this perspective. .
Its mission is to offer students, students and workers top-level courses during the day and in the evening classes.
Opened in October 2000 with 64 students and two tracks of BTS (Electronics and Maintenance Computer and Finance Accounting), the IST counts for the year 2011-2012 more than 500 students. The Institute has developed and implemented new training courses. Thanks to international collaborations, notably with the Cégep Régional de Lanaudière and the International Center for Applied Higher Studies of Canada, several curricula in various fields of computer science, biomedical maintenance and agribusiness have been developed.
