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.

Overview:

This session will be an interactive session on the current state of play of the Maltese pension system.  The presentation will address a number of questions currently being asked  such as: What is the sustainability of the local pension system in the long term?  What is a Pillar II and a Pillar III pension?  Are these pensions voluntary or obligatory and how do they operate in other countries?  Government has recently issued a tax incentive to encourage people to consider a voluntary pension under Pillar III, the session will delve into how such a tax rebate works?  And finally the session will explore the question: What is the right amount of money I should be putting aside to ensure that I can sustain my current standard of living when I decide to retire?

The Chamber feels this activity is relevant to both young and established engineers to plan their financial future in a sustainable manner.

We look forward to your participation at this event.

Chamber of Engineers Annual Conference on Intelligent Buildings

The Chamber of Engineers held its 24th Annual Engineering Conference on 5th May 2016 at the Radisson BLU Golden Sands. The conference entitled “Intelligent Buildings” focused on a variety of aspects related to buildings.

In his opening address Chamber President, Ing. Norman Zammit referred to the introduction of the first personal computers and mobile telephony, highlighting how technology evolved over the last 30 years, making it possible for this technology to be used in buildings to render them intelligent. From basic Building Management systems, to an evolution of integrated systems, where these systems can feature security, access control, CCTV and fire detection.

Ing. Zammit pointed out that health and safety requirements in this sector need to be reviewed to reassess the possible need for certification of these innovative engineering systems.

Hon. Joe Mizzi, Minister for Transport and the Infrastructure, also attending the conference, referred to the introduction of basic building management systems, which eventually gave birth to a new era of intelligent buildings. “The most important contribution of these types of buildings is not just the comfort provided to the users but more importantly the contribution towards the sustainability of our environment. Considering that the principle of sustainability can be applied to a number of buildings in the same area and the other concepts of sustainability are applied, then the result would be a smart city,” he said.
