The engineer, who during the "Coffee with Science and Technology", presented the theme "The industries in Angola", made it known that universities and professional technical institutes should give more courage to entrepreneurship, to replace the robot plants.

According to the engineer, the micro-industries in this new era, support the economy with the appearance of the 3D printer, which guarantees the production of large quantities of products in a small space, producing parts for the industry itself, as well as small kitchenware, hygiene, health, beauty, education, agriculture, among others.

According to Jorge Pinto, institutions that compete for teaching and learning must also bet on the values, ethics and responsibility of students as the future of the industry depends on them.
