Engineering Sustainability & Sustainable Energy 2018

The Chamber of Engineers is organising a joint conference in collaboration with the Institute for Sustainable Energy of the University of Malta, entitled:

Engineering Sustainability & Sustainable Energy 2018

ESSE ‘18

Tuesday 8th May 2018

The Dolmen Resort Hotel & Spa, St. Paul’s Bay, Malta

As technological advancements are being made in all societal levels and the quality of life has increased, unprecedented pressures on the planet have resulted in weather anomalies, resource depletion, wildlife habitat loss and an increased potential for human conflict. Engineers and Scientists have now found themselves in a unique position of responsibility, where they need to seek inspiration to further technological progress by doing more with less, to achieve higher efficiencies and enhance productivity, and to sustain the engineering trade, while engineering a sustainable future.

This conference aims at bringing together all professional stakeholders to discuss future plans and demonstrate their latest success stories in engineering a sustainable future. Many aspects will be considered from micro to macro levels. Resources, including but not limited to energy and renewable energy, industry, buildings and policy shall be considered and linked to sustainability and the energy challenges that human beings will face beyond 2020.

Registration to the conference is now open.

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
