Support the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards 2013

The Chamber of Engineers has recently launched the 12th edition of the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards.

These awards are our opportunity to recognise engineering excellence in various areas of the engineering profession.

We are pleased to note that over these past years the number of nominations received has been on the increase.  We are confident that the awards have served to encourage individuals and organisations to strive for excellence and to make the attainment of one of these awards their goal.  This augurs well for the profession and we look forward to a good number of nominations as in previous years.  This ceremony will serve to showcase the capabilities of the engineering community.

CoE participates in Final Year Engineering Projects Exhibition


Once again, the Chamber of Engineers participated in the opening ceremony of the Final Year Projects Exhibition of the Faculty of Engineering. 12 projects were shortlisted in the Mechanical and Electrical streams, whilst 8 projects were shortlisted under ICT. The awards were presented by Chamber President Ing. Saviour Baldacchino on the 27th Jun and 11th July respectively, at the University of Malta. All students received a certificate of recognition.

Mark Bonnici won the Mechanical Engineering award, with his project entitled The Development of Environmentally Conscious Cosmetic Packaging through Eco-Design and Design for Manufacture. The Electrical Engineering award went to Andre Micallef with his project on Acquisition and Tracking for UAV Communications. Vincent Emmanuel Farruiga won the ICT award with his project SCENARIO - Setting Crowd Events using Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence.

CoE holds successful Biomedical Engineering Conference


The Chamber of Engineers’ recently held its 22nd Annual Conference, entitled Engineering: the Backbone of Healthcare. Held at the Grand Hotel Excelsior, this year the theme chosen was bio-medical engineering. The objective of the conference was to provide insight to engineers and other professionals on this ever growing branch of engineering.

The health sector has no doubt made great leaps forward to the well being of people. Little is however mentioned about the engineering knowledge required to put medical science into practice. In this conference, experts in the field swill shed light on some of the technological developments in the field. In Malta, there are various opportunities in which engineers can be involved in bio-medical engineering due to the fact that the field requires the input of other branches of engineering.

Following the welcome speech by Chamber President, Ing. Saviour Baldacchino, the keynote speech was given by Hon. Edward Zammit Lewis, Parliamentary Secretary for Competitiveness and Economic Growth. The Hon. Zammit-Lewis addressed the importance of engineering, particularly in the field of research and development.

The Hon. Zammit Lewis explained that in parallel with the propensity for growth in the biomedical engineering sector, engineering students in Malta are furthering their education at Masters and even Doctoral levels in the subject, thus providing the expertise needed to develop and guide the sector. In this regard, the Hon. Edward Zammit Lewis encouraged the Chamber of Engineers to continue collaborating with our country’s higher education institutions, to ensure that the academic and vocational opportunities to students aspiring for a career in biomedical engineering are relevant to the requirements of this sector.
