The Engineering Projects Exhibition, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary, is an annual event that showcases the practical and academic work carried out by University of Malta students during the final year of their B.Eng. (Hons) degree programme.

The total number of exhibits by undergraduate students for this year amounts to 74. These include a wide selection of topical areas related to the biomedical field, renewable energy, the environment, electronic products, robotics, transportation, manufacturing processes, new materials and surfaces.

The public is invited to the Exhibition, held at the Engineering Building, University of Malta, Msida, on Friday 4th July from 17:00 to 20:00hrs and Saturday 5th July from 09:00 to 12:00hrs.

Throughout the years, the exhibited projects have portrayed state-of-the-art technological achievements of the students. The aim of the exhibition is to give prospective students and members of the public, particularly persons working in the various engineering sectors, an opportunity to view the projects first hand, and to meet with graduating students of the Faculty of Engineering. Representatives of a number of leading private firms and parastatal companies participate in the exhibition and offer their support each year.

The Faculty of Engineering offers tuition and supervision to about 477 students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The number of postgraduate students is significant, totalling 51 at Master level and 18 at Ph.D. level.

The Faculty is also very active in research in all fields covered by its departments. In fact, the number of international publications involving Faculty of Engineering staff (journal papers and proceedings) over a 21 month period from January 2011 are in excess of 120.
