University academic honoured by worldwide aviation industry

engineer honoured by aviation industryThe Chamber of Engineers would like to congratulate Dr Ing. Andrew Sammut, lecturer within the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering at the University of Malta, who was awarded the prestigious William E. Jackson award by the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) for his research dealing with aircraft safety.

Ing. Sammut’s winning submission involved the design of an avionic system with the capability of detecting conflicts between aircraft on the runway. The technology has the capability of determining the safest avoidance manoeuvre that the pilots should take to clear the conflict, which is then communicated directly to the pilots in the cockpit using a novel alerting technique.

Utilising Voltage Optimisation for Energy Saving Purposes

The Chamber of Engineers in collaboration with CD Power Saving Co Ltd organised a short morning seminar entitled "Utilising Voltage Optimisation for Energy Saving Purposes" by Dr Alex Mardapittas. This seminar was held on Tuesday 29th May from 08:30 - 11:30 at the Professional Centre, Gzira.



Water: A 21st Century Challenge: CoE Conference a well attended success

The water challenges that we experience today are clear. The increasing population growth, urbanisation, increased industrial activity, and climate change are amongst the many factors which give rise to water problems. Now more than ever, countries are faced with this problem in a similar way as they are faced with problems related to energy. For this reason, the design of appropriate water management strategies becomes essential. Scientists and engineers are required to create immediate solutions for the present as well as for the future.

During its Annual Conference held on 9th May, the Chamber of Engineers tackled the issue of water sustainability from a number of different view-points, including water management, innovative desalination technologies and a detailed look at the local scenario. The conference aimed to analyses ongoing developments and challenges being faced both locally and internationally.

The event was opened with an address from the Hon. Dr. Mario de Marco, Minister for Tourism, Culture and the Environment and Inġ. Saviour Baldacchino, President, Chamber of Engineers.
