“Companies in our country need the best engineers and scientists to innovate,” said Johnny Brebels in his speech. “I encourage young people today to make the right choice and study engineering: there are so many opportunities to build a dynamic professional life in innovation. Even in an age where technology is key, it is still all about men and women who drive innovation and work together towards a common goal.”
