Following the usual footsteps of other FLOGEN award recipients who subsequently achieved further recognition, we are very glad to announce that Robert Yuksel Yildirim, was awarded on 22 February 2019 the honorary title of US Oregon State University Hall of Fame.

The official web site of Oregon State University shows that: https://engineering.oregonstate.edu/robert-yildirim-2019-engineering-hall-fame

With that occasion Robert gave a lecture entitled: The Responsibilities of an Engineer in a Competitive Global Economy. The announcement is given here


With that occasion the Oregon State University in USA, prepared a video dedicated to him. The video can be viewed here

This is not new for FLOGEN: with its prestigious awards, FLOGEN has opened/validated or confirmed the pathway to other high honors for individuals who have greatly contributed to science and technology, as detailed in previous similar cases given in this Web site . However, the story of Robert Yuksel YILDIRIM is unique since he is an engineer who became very successful in the business world. The responsibilities of engineers in a global competitive economy (the title of his presentation - given above) is exactly what FLOGEN STARS OUTREACH (www.flogen.org) and SIPS is about.

We wish similar future successes for all 2017 FLOGEN Award winners that were honored during SIPS 2017 in Cancun, in October 2017 given here
