CoE presents the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards 2009

The Winners of the eighth edition of the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards (MEEA) were announced on Friday December 4th at a reception hosted by the Chamber of Engineers. The awards were presented by H.E. Robbert Gabrielse, ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, John Scerri, deputy chairman of Malta Enterprise and Inġ. Helga Pizzuto, President of the Chamber of Engineers. The MEEAs provide national recognition to individuals and organisations who have achieved outstanding engineering accomplishments.

This year’s award for Innovation was awarded to the IUBS programme team consisting of the Enemalta Corporation, the Water Services Corporation and IBM. The IUBS project’s brief and investment demanded exceptional inter-sectoral competencies, efficiency and technical expertise.

A second award for Innovation was awarded to Playmobil Ltd. (Malta) for embracing a philosophy of Innovation. This is the third time that Playmobil participated in the MEEAs  in the past 4 years. Each year the Playmobil submission has featured an innovation to their current manufacturing process, an approach that has ensured that the Malta facility remains competitive in the face of stiff competition overseas.

Setting up of an Electrical Energy and Efficiency Laboratory – University of Malta
The University of Malta is one of the beneficiaries of the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2007-2013.  The Department of Industrial Electrical Power Conversion within the Faculty of Engineering will be benefitting under the project “Electrical Energy and Efficiency Laboratory for the University of Malta”. The ERDF funded project consists in the setting up of a laboratory that will be used for teaching and research in the area of electrical energy generation, conversion, its efficient use and quality of supply.

This project is aimed at setting up a facility that will improve Malta’s research and development potential in the applied engineering field of Electrical Energy. The facility will enable research in: the field of energy conversion from renewable energy sources (RES) such as solar and wind; the design, construction and control of power electronic converters; the simulation and analysis of the interaction of RES with the Maltese Electrical network; the improved usage of traditional energy sources; the increase of electrical energy efficiency in domestic and industrial applications and the improvement of power quality.
M.Sc. in Integrated Product Development

CourseIn today's competitive environment, if you are a manager/entrepreneur or an engineer/scientist who wishes to achieve or increase success in an industry that involves the making or altering of a product, it has become essential that you acquire a broad and in-depth expertise in the various aspects of product development. Indeed, the modern approach in today's industry is that of Integrated Product Development (IPD), where all of the aspects of product function and design, of product materials and manufacturing, of product use and environmental impact, of product marketing and costing, and of entrepreneurship and business management are linked into a single discipline that is targeted towards optimising overall performance and degree of success.
