University of Modena's Faculty of Engineering Named After Enzo Ferrari

Ferrari has made a step forward in the student recruitment field, as the company has named the University of Modena’s Faculty of Engineering in honor of Enzo Ferrari.The Italian automotive producer has been collaborating with the institute of higher education for some time now, with the new move tightening the bond.

The dedication was marked through a special ceremony, which was attended by Ferrari vice chairman Piero Ferrari (Enzo’s son) and the company’s chairman Luca Di Montezemolo, with both executives receiving honorary degrees by the school.

"My father always believed in young people - right from the time he founded the company. Proof of that is that he called in Luca di Montezemolo as his assistant when he wasn't much over 20," said Piero Ferrari.

"I learned a lot from Enzo Ferrari," Luca Di Montezemolo explained ."I learned to give young people responsibility, to never give in, to always look ahead. Naming the faculty of engineering after Enzo Ferrari is a great acknowledgement both of the founder himself and Ferrari as a whole. Like all the other companies in the area, our relationship with the University is fundamental. It's an open University that will always be able to count on its relationship and dialogue with Ferrari."

Ferrari's boss went on to encourage the students that attended the ceremony to sharpen their skill and set themselves higher targets.

"It's important for the company, for Modena and for the nation as a whole that young people that deserve to are given the opportunity to shine," the executive told the students.
