President Stevo Pendarovski awarded the “Engineering Ring” award to the most successful students who graduated from the faculties that nurture engineering disciplines.
In his address, President Pendarovski stressed that the awarding of the “Engineering Ring” award is a rare and particularly important event that takes place for the 18th time this year, which indicates a continuity and tradition built.
“I believe that the engineering ring has already grown into a successful and original project that achieves its initial goal – affirming the engineering professions and their importance for society”, President Pendarovski said.
President Pendarovski stressed that the Covid 19 pandemic showed us that despite all the technical and technological development we have experienced as a civilization, we are still vulnerable; there are weaknesses and sore points.
“It is clear that we need to focus our priorities more on education and science. The commotion of consumer societies quenched the thirst for learning and knowledge and relativized solidarity, ethics, and the existing value system. As future engineers, you need to be factors in change and progress. I hope you have the opportunity to create as future architects, engineers, computer scientists, technologists, electrical technicians, civil, agricultural and forestry engineers, and you should always have in mind that our common goal is to build a fairer, more humane and more beautiful world”, President Pendarovski said.
The “Engineering Ring” award is awarded by the Engineering Institution of Macedonia and the Chamber of Certified Architects and Certified Engineers, under the auspices of the President of the Republic of North Macedonia, which aims to encourage the study of engineering which will contribute to creating a quality engineering youth. 12 graduate engineers are this year’s winners of the award.
