But there were also other moments of great emotion, especially for the young engineers who have now completed their internship for admission to the Bar Association. The representatives of their colleges presented the awards for Best Internship North 2021, when the student from the School of Engineering went on stage to receive his prize.
There was also time for the presentation of awards for New Student Members, Effective Members, Members with 10 and 25 years of membership in the OE and Senior Member.
The ceremony was closed by Carlos Mineiro Aires, President of the Order of Engineers.
