About the Chamber
The Chamber of Engineers (CoE) is the only local organisation catering for the interests of Maltese Professional Engineers. The Chamber was founded on the 28th April 1978.
The Chamber of Engineers is today an ever growing, dynamic and very active organisation which is continuously discussing ways and means of both enhancing and safeguarding the profession.
At both a local and European level, the Chamber actively participates in international discussion groups through the Chamber’s affiliation with the European Federation of National Engineering Associations (FEANI). It has also hosted the annual FEANI meeting on two occasions in 1994 and in 2004. The Chamber’s role in Malta is also recognised. The Chamber has a representative voice on a number of local Authorities and Government Boards.
The CoE organises various activities such as, visits to engineering concerns and projects, and engineering fora amongst others. The most prestigious activity is the Annual Engineering Conference, organised in April or May of each year.
In December we organise our Annual Reception during which the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards, for Innovation , Leadership and LifeTime Achievement, are presented. A novelty in our calendar is the Annual Concert.
The Chamber also organises regular lectures which offer an ideal opportunity for attendees to broaden their knowledge on different Engineering concerns and provides one with an ideal opportunity to meet fellow engineers with whom one can talk, share experiences, identify common problems and discuss potential solutions.
The Chamber organises courses for the Engineering Community on Health and Safety, Quality, Management, Building Services, Technical and Information Technology subjects. The best engineering lecturers on the island conduct these courses.
The CoE publishes a regular journal – “Engineering Today” – providing a medium for the exchange of technical articles and views on subjects relating to the profession.
The Chamber of Engineers offers unique opportunities, both on an individual basis and as a Professional body, through its ongoing work to enhance the co-operation between Engineers for the good of our society, and by ensuring that the Engineer’s voice is heard at government level.
