Ghana Institute of Engineers inducts 128 new members


President of the Ghana Institution of Engineers (GhIE), Ing. Magnus Lincoln Quarshie, has inducted 128 Engineers at the 12th induction ceremony of the institute.

The event, which took place at the Engineers Centre in Accra on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 was well attended by notable Engineers in Ghana.

Ing. Magnus Lincoln Quarshie called on Engineers in the country to be conscious of their actions in order to produce the best quality, timely products that will last a lifetime.

As the Chairman for the ceremony, the President of GhIE charged the new members to “improve the quality of life among the people whom we live and serve. What it means is that, we must do this with all diligence and ethical norms”.

“It is evident that to come this far decisively in your professional career means you are an Engineer by choice and not by chance. If you scan around, I have no doubt that some of the people you sat in class with have wondered away from this great profession and vocation that is the only one that satisfies the wonders of the WORLD”, the GhIE President added.

Special Guest of Honour of the ceremony, Ing. Wilfred Edwin Owusu Apatu, also said “when we design and build, let us think that we build forever; let it not be for the present delight nor for the present use alone; let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think that as we lay stone on stone, lay cables to cables, mix chemicals with chemicals, build machines upon machines that a time is to come when these actions and activities will be held sacred because our minds and hands have touched them, and that men will say when they see them, say these our father’s did for us”.
