Premio José Amézaga

El Premio José M. Amézaga se estableció en 1993, para distinguir anualmente a un ingeniero que se destaque por su dedicación y apoyo a la Asociación en la promoción de la profesión de Ingenieria y en ayudar a los colegas ingenieros en lo que sea posible. Con esto se honra la memoria del Ing. José M. Amézaga, quien fuera un ingeniero electricista cubano, destacado tanto en Cuba como en el exilio por su gran calidad humana y profesional. Fue miembro fundador del Colegio de Ingenieros Electricistas de Cuba en el Exilio y fue participe en la creación de la Asociación de Ingenieros Cubanos, para que se pudieran incorporar ingenieros de otras denominaciones, que debido a su pequeño número, carecian de agrupación propia.
