We are addressing major corporate and engineering companies in Malta to obtain their support for this prestigious event. The Chamber of Engineers invites you to participate in this yearly event as a celebration of achievements by the local engineering community. The MEEA showcases the excellence in engineering innovation and its positive impact on the Maltese society.

 

These awards are actually presented during the Chamber of Engineers annual reception which will be held under the Distinguished Patronage of H.E. Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, President of Malta. This year the event will be held at the Verdala Palace  on the evening of the 12th December 2017.

CoE President's Statement

On Monday 15th May the Chamber of Engineers had a meeting with the Hon. Minister Mizzi and representatives from the Engineering Board to discuss the outcome of the review process of the engineering degrees being issued by MCAST and the University of Malta in relation to the eligibility for the warrant to practice the profession. These last three years, Chamber of Engineers had been following up with the Engineering Board on the issue. The principle to be followed is that all degrees are to be brought up to the same level without compromises and where some degrees lack in the level then bridging study opportunities should be given to all graduates and students to ensure a level playing field. The report from the Board, based on the findings of the international reviewers, has revealed that there are deficiencies in the courses being given by MCAST and these deficiencies are resulting in graduates from MCAST not being able to apply for the warrant to practice as an engineer. Furthermore these anomalies are creating the notion of 1st class and 2nd class graduates in engineering that is many times being exploited by industry in favour of lower wages awards. We sincerely hope that MCAST will commit to making the necessary changes to bring justice to their students and bridging studies opportunities should be given for those MCAST graduates to allow them to align with fulfilling the requirements. This process should not become a political game and the Engineering Board has our full support in the way the issue is being handled.

Inġ. Norman Zammit , President

The number of vacancies for the upcoming council term will be that of four and hence a formal election needs to be held as detailed in the statute of the Chamber of Engineers. At a meeting held on the 24th January 2017, the council agreed to provide members with the possibility of voting by post as was done in previous years.

Short biographies of the nominees please click here. You are kindly invited to vote either by post or during the AGM itself.

Those who have not yet paid their 2017 membership fee or any arrears the bios only are included with the covering letter. Those members who did not yet pay their fee can still attend the AGM and vote, provided they renew their membership at the door.

Voting documents that are submitted by post must reach PO Box 02 Zabbar by latest noon of Tuesday 21st February 2017. The paid up members who intend to attend the 24th February AGM and wish to vote at the AGM rather then sending the voting document by post,  are reminded to get the voting document and ballot envelope with them on the 24th February. All voting documents will be placed in a sealed box and opened only during the AGM at the counting stage of the election.

While the postal voting system has been in place for a number of years, members are still strongly encouraged to participate in the AGM.
