|CoE launches 10th edition of Malta Engineering Excellence Awards.|
The Chamber of Engineers is proud to announce the launch of the 10th edition of the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards. The nominations for 2011 are now open.
“These awards are the Chamber’s opportunity to recognise engineering excellence in the areas of innovation and leadership and to recognise those who throughout their career have contributed significantly to the development of engineering in Malta,” said Ing. Saviour Baldacchino, President of the Chamber of Engineers.
“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 this year,” he added.
The Leadership Award recognises exceptional leadership that demonstrates success in planning, implementation and direction of outstanding achievements, effectiveness in raising the level of engineering excellence, promotion of the engineering profession in industry and society, and technical and economic contributions to the success of the organisation.
The Innovation Award recognises engineering achievements that demonstrate an original or innovative application of new or existing techniques, a high degree of merit, skill and ingenuity, and a high technical value to the engineering profession. Nominees will be judged on the quality and effectiveness of engineering projects in their respective industry.
The Lifetime Achievement Award is the Chamber’s most prestigious award and is given to an individual who has contributed significantly to the development of engineering in Malta.
The awards for Innovation, Leadership and Lifetime Achievement will be presented during the Chamber’s Annual Reception on 7th December at St John's Cavalier, Embassy of the Sovereign Military Order of St John in Ordinance Street, Valletta. The event will be held under the Distinguished Patronage of H.E Dr. George Abela, President of Malta. As with previous years this ceremony will serve to showcase the capabilities of the engineering community.
The Chamber of Engineers invites its members to participate in this process by nominating individuals and/or organisations that deserve recognition for the accomplishments they have achieved in the field of engineering. Further information can be found on www.coe.org.mt
