“Engineers are a main productive force in society. They are the “proletariat” of the modern world.”
Igor Agamirzian
“No matter how talented you are, you are still limited in what you know. So, one has to go back to school and learn from the world’s best. Learning must be global.”
Dr. Xiang Bing
“There is going to be a war for talent and whoever wins this war is going to have an impact on the relative performance of cities, regions, companies and countries.”
