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.

We are pleased to note that over these past years the number of nominations received has been on the increase.  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.
