Reliance Industries Ltd's chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani has been awarded the Dean's Medal from the University of Pennsylvania for his visionary leadership in the application of engineering and technology for the betterment of mankind.

Commenting on the inaugural medal, Eduardo Glandt, dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, University of Pennsylvania, said, "Mukesh Ambani embodies what the engineering profession can contribute to a country, as someone who seeks to apply technology for the betterment of society."

In his acceptance speech, Mukesh Ambani said, “It (the medal) recognises the collective achievement of the Reliance family and the creativity of over 25,000 engineers in Reliance. I dedicate this medal to the indomitable spirit of our founder chairman, Dhirubhai Ambani and each and every member of the Reliance family."

Mr Ambani is currently steering Reliance's development of a pan-India retail network, a transformational initiative connecting rural and urban India. He was also instrumental in the formation of Reliance Infocomm Ltd, one of the largest information and communications initiatives in the world.
