- It shows intelligence in Luleå Technical University as an organization that I finally received the prize, joked Rickard Kjellgren, one of the prized alumni.
This year's three alumni received diplomas, flowers and a glass sculpture by Vice Rector Erik Höglund before they were interviewed by moderator Charlotte Lindmark before an enthusiastic audience.
Erik Höglund sees the award as a way to honor successful alumni, but also to inspire current students.
- It shows that your training hold up in a national and international competition. It may be comforting to think about when it is most difficult to study, said Vice Rector.
