IEC 2021 successes from the conception, organization, and hosting show what teamwork of highly experienced professionals can achieve in the space of time. It also portrays the unrelenting effort of Tishk university to propel and project academic excellence to a world-class level and find its rightful place among the top-notch universities around the globe. This will undoubtedly benefit the university and the entire Kurdistan region and its people by putting them on the map for their academic excellence and achievements. Therefore, we wish to encourage and solicit your support by participating actively in our next conference to rip the benefits of such an international event.
On behalf of everyone at the IEC-2021, I wish to express my deepest thanks and appreciation to the dean and vice-dean of faculty of engineering for their invaluable supports and encouragement, the heads of all the departments in the engineering faculty for their passions, and rallying around to see our success. I equally want to appreciate and recognize the moral, logistic and financial supports we received from the Tishk International University and our other partners. We thank you very much, and we hope that we can all work together once again in the future to achieve greater goals.
