This project is a contribution to the continuous improvement of the education of engineers, which involves all the stakeholders in the field. It presents the primary results of a quantitative study of mechanical engineering training in the Higher National School of Electricity and Mechanics (École Nationale Supérieure d'Électricité et Mécanique - ENSEM), in collaboration with numerous Moroccan industrialists. The first phase of the research consisted in the issue as well as the research methodology adopted. In the second phase, a survey instrument was developed based on the competency framework as a research model, and then the hypotheses to be tested were outlined. Then, a questionnaire was designed and pre-tested for the purposes of this examination, which was subsequently completed   by industry leaders from different sectors. The results obtained show the strengths and weaknesses in ENSEM's training in mechanical engineering and reveal the correlations between the various engineering competencies. The paper finally ends with a listing of recommendations to address the diverse issues identified, in addition to a statement of the further prospects for this research.
