Project Management for Engineers

The Chamber of Engineers recently organised a lecture on Project Management for Engineers, in collaboration with the Malta Institute of Management. The lecture was given by Prof. Alex Roberts from Edinburgh Business School. The aim of the lecture was to focus on the transition from specialist management posts such as a chief engineer or plant manager, to a position that requires increased leadership skills, such as operations or general manager, or even starting a new company. This transition requires the learning of new skills that are not obtained during the engineering degree, such as skills like being responsible for other people's performance, for financial and marketing issues, leading transformational change in your organisation and for managing relationships with suppliers and buyers.

In March, the Chamber of Engineers welcomed Building Industry Consultative Council (BICC) Chairman, Perit Censu Galea to the CoE offices. The aim of the meeting was to discuss the CoE strategy for improving the safety of equipment, as well as other matters.

The Chamber was represented by President Ing. Saviour Baldacchino, Vice President Ing. Ray Vassallo, Secretary General Ing. Ray Muscat, and Public Relations Officer, Ing. Paul Refalo.

During the meeting, the CoE representatives made a number of recommendations to Perit Galea as points for discussion, with the possibility of future implementation. Amongst their recommendations, they suggested the possibility of conducting training needs analysis of the construction industry workforce so that appropriate training could be identified, not only for those within the industry but also for those interested in potential employment, so that social, economic, environmental and political targets can be met.

Misuse of ‘Engineer’ is misleading

MEDIA RELEASE
10th April 2012

 

Following various instances of misuse as reported by the media, the Chamber of Engineers would like to clarify the definition of a professional and warranted engineer. It is unfortunate that the term “inġinier” is misused by the media as well as individuals in the political sphere, when in fact referring to technicians. The term is also used incorrectly by Human Resources Managers, who often give the title of ‘Engineer’ to advertised vacant posts which do not require the services of an engineer.

The title of Engineer is in fact protected by law. According to the Engineering Profession Act (Ch.321 of the Laws of Malta), “‘Engineer’ means a person who has obtained a degree in engineering from the University of Malta or from a foreign institution recognised as equivalent.” Furthermore, “‘profession of engineer’ means the profession practiced by an engineer who is a warrant holder.”
