It  also enabled   to strengthen the teamwork concept,  which  is  necessary  for  each  student’s  further learning process. I welcome this kind of student projects and hopes that in the future we will be witnessing such  kind of scientific and academic  projects. I  think that  the  workshop served  its  purpose   and  the  selected  slogan, that’s, more intelligent  students”,  mentioned  the  Vice-rector.
