On the recommendation of the Executive of the WIETE International Academic Advisory Committee (WIETE-IAAC), a membership grade called Fellowship, was established in February 2012. This is the WIETE’s highest membership grade, awarded to prominent international academics involved in engineering and technology education.

A distinguished Greek academic, Professor George Kabouridis, Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Technological Educational Institute of Western Greece, Patras, Greece, was elected a WIETE Fellow on this occasion and was presented with his diploma by Prof. Zenon J. Pudlowski, WIETE Director at the Conference Banquet of the 6th WIETE Annual Conference on Engineering and Technology Education, held in Bangkok, Thailand, on Wednesday, 18 February 2015.

The citation mentioned that the recipient of this highest WIETE honour received it ... in recognition of his distinguished contributions to engineering and technology education, outstanding achievements in the globalisation of engineering and technology education through the activities of the WIETE, and, in particular, for exceptional service to the WIETE.

We would like to congratulate Prof. Kabouridis on the award and wish him continuing success with his exceptional input to the world of engineering and technology, and also to thank him wholeheartedly for his exceptional contribution to the life and activities of the WIETE.
