Transforming Society through Engineering

The past few months have given tangible proof of the importance of engineers, their role in society, and how they can enhance that same society through the practical application of their knowledge.

Last July, the Department of Industrial Manufacturing Engineering within the University of Malta announced that it had developed a laparoscopic surgery tool which combines a pair of scissors, a hook and grasper, in order to speed up keyhole surgery. It has been reported that surgeons have taken an interest in this new instrument.
