Information and knowledge are crucial assets in the 21st century, underpinning the continuing revolution that is taking place in all major sectors of the modern economy, such as banking, education, health, finance, manufacturing and entertainment.
ICT stands for Information and Communications Technology, a spectrum of sub-disciplines that are unified by their concern with the definition, representation, communication and processing of information using computer and networking technologies. These technologies have a key role to play in the development of knowledge-critical assets that improve the ability of national and global infrastructures to collect and manage data, to provide services, to monitor performance and to plan effectively for the future.
In 2007, the University of Malta, set up the Faculty of Information and Communication Technology, responsible for the areas of Informatics, Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence, Communications and Computer Engineering and of Microelectronics and Nanoelectronics.
Five Departments presently make up the Faculty of Information and Communication Technology. Dr Ernest Cachia is the current Dean of the Faculty, whilst Prof. Ing. Carl J. Debono is the Deputy Dean.
