Polytechnic of Turin grants Amilcare Merlo the Honorary Degree in Mechanical Engineering
The Rector of the Polytechnic of Turin awarded Amilcare Merlo the Honorary Degree in Mechanical Engineering “for his exceptional technical skills which led him to develop many innovative mechanical engineering projects and for the entrepreneurial spirit he had in establishing and managing an international company with an important economic and social impact in the territory in which it is rooted”.
The Honoris Causa Doctorate has a special value and it is a great satisfaction and a source of pride for all those who in the Merlo Group, in these over seventy years of the entrepreneurial career of President Amilcare Merlo, have collaborated with him with commitment and passion for achieve this prestigious goal.
The Lectio Magistralis held by Amilcare Merlo sealed the award ceremony.
He retraced the most significant stages of the technological development that characterised the growth process of his company, underlining the contribution that the innovations have given to the entire industrial sector to which it belongs.
The importance of ideas and the tenacity in developing them characterized this intense Lectio Magistralis in which Amilcare Merlo invited young people to dare, to think outside the box, to develop even apparently unattainable ideas and to engage in challenges that often prove to be successful.
