The Ghana Institution of Engineers (GhIE) has inducted 145 new engineers who passed the Engineering Professional Examinations at the 16th Induction ceremony held in Accra.

President of GhIE, Ing. Dr. Kwame Boakye, who was speaking at the induction ceremony, appealed to the new engineers to always keep in mind the objective of GhIE which is to promote and advance science and engineering to the benefit of society.

“You must further observe that most development problems are essentially engineering problems and that no nation ever developed without indigenous engineers,” he said.

Engineering has been and continues to be the backbone for the development and progress of any country, Dr. Boakye said, adding “this places a special responsibility on us, individually and collectively in the development of Ghana.”
