Launching of the 15th Edition of the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards 2016

The Council of the Chamber of Engineers has the pleasure to once again announce the launching of the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards (MEEA) for the Year 2016. This is the 15th Edition and we hereby declare the nominations for this year as now OPEN.

The Chamber of Engineers recognises the importance of this yearly event as a celebration of achievements by the local engineering community with regards to excellence in engineering innovation and its positive impact on the Maltese society.

This year two Awards will be presented

The Maurice Debono Lifetime Achievement Award towards the individual engineer who has contributed along his lifetime towards the advancement of Engineering and its profession in Malta, in honour of one of our founders.

The Industrial Excellence Award is awarded to organisations/ companies/ individuals who have demonstrated excellence in their engineering work through a recent project.

During the same event, the Best Student Projects’ CoE Awards will also take place, but their nominations are separate from the MEEA procedures.

We encourage both companies and individuals to come forward and nominate individuals and organisations that merit consideration for these awards, in line with our terms as set out in the same nomination form. The deadline for submission of nominations has been extended to the  4th November 2016, therefore we ask vigilance on the part of our members to participate actively in these nominations.

The awards will be presented during the Chamber’s Annual Reception under the Distinguished Patronage of H.E. Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta. The event will be held at the majestic Verdala Palace on the evening of Thursday 1st December 2016. Due to numerous requests in the past, this year we are planning to have seating facilities during the awards’ ceremony.

Please note all nomination forms and relevant documentation are to reach the MEEA Selection Committee by the closing date mentioned above.  No applications will be considered after that date.

The Chamber would like to promote this event also as a public awareness exercise to recognise the Engineering achievements.  We therefore encourage organisations and individuals to come forward and participate actively, even via sponsorship towards this annual prestigious event.

Bank of Valletta and the Chamber of Engineers renew their collaboration

4th October 2016

Bank of Valletta and the Chamber of Engineers renew their collaboration

Bank of Valletta renewed its association agreement with the Chamber of Engineers. The collaborative agreement was signed by Mr Kenneth Farrugia, Chief Business Development Officer at Bank of Valletta and Ing. Norman Zammit, President of the Chamber of Engineers. The signature took place during a joint educational clinic about Pensions for the members of the Chamber.

Welcoming the attendees, Mr Farrugia explained, “The Bank’s relationship with the Chamber of Engineers has grown from strength to strength over the years. During this time, both parties have collaborated to introduce financial educational initiatives to assist  members of the Chamber, take informed financial decisions.” Mr Farrugia highlighted the role that education plays on the Bank’s agenda. “In this regard, we are also pleased to announce that as part of this agreement, we shall be introducing the BOV Engineering Student Award, with the aim of encouraging the top engineering students to expose themselves and their projects to international fora, thereby investing in their future.”

Ing. Zammit expressed his satisfaction that the two parties are renewing their collaboration. “In today’s world, engineers are becoming increasingly more involved at managerial levels, not only technical posts, therefore it is even more important that they familiarise themselves with the world of financial markets. In light of this, I believe that the synergy between the Bank and the Chamber will lead to greater professional development of the Chamber’s members, which is recognised as important, even at EU level.”

Victoria Azzopardi from EU and Institutional Affairs at Bank of Valletta kicked off the educational clinic by giving an overview of the benefits offered through the BOV Customised Package available to members of the Chamber of Engineers. She also gave insight on the various consumer finance instruments available, so that members can take informed decisions regarding their finances.

Mario Farrugia, Head Bancassurance at Bank of Valletta followed by  giving an overview of the current situation on pensions in Malta and the importance of a third pillar pension.  “Statistics show that life expectancy is increasing circa eight hours a day “The main aim of this educational clinic,” Mr Farrugia said, “is to raise awareness about the importance of saving for one’s retirement particularly when one considers that life expectancy is increasing on average 8 hours per day. Everyone wants to maintain his/her current lifestyle, however this requires planning beforehand. The private pension schemes offered by Bank of Valletta and MSV Life are intended to help in this regard.

In his concluding remarks, Mark Scicluna Bartoli, Head EU and Institutional Affairs at the Bank thanked the engineers for their active participation, and expressed his satisfaction at the high turnout. He reiterated the Bank’s commitment to continue investing in broadening and facilitating access to financial information to the general public.
