Honorary Members

Professional organizations, unlike academic institutions, do not use the prestigious title of Doctor Honoris Causa to recognise exceptional representatives of scientific and engineering community. A prestigious Honorary Membership, which is granted by general meeting of professional organizations, is comparable to a certain extent. The criteria are primarily achievements in the field of science, career and social in the parent organization, in the national and international environment.
