Projects Exhibitions 2002
Faculty of Engineering
Board of Studies for Information Technology The Faculty of Engineering and the Board of Studies for Information Technology of the University of Malta will together be organising their annual students' projects exhibitions. The projects reflect the various areas of development and research in which the academic staff members are active. The students add their efforts of several months of work, ideas and commitment.

Although the two degree programmes B.Eng.(Hons) and B.Sc.I.T.(Hons) each have their own distinctive areas, the sharing of expertise in software methodology and engineering applications offers a collaborative effort in various fields. The B.Eng.(Hons) degree covers mechanical, materials, manufacturing processes, electrical, electronic, computer and communication subjects. The B.Sc.I.T.(Hons) covers areas related to computer, communication, computer science, information and software. The various student projects reflect these areas and subjects.

The exhibitions will be opened by the Prime Minister, the Hon. Dr Fenech Adami on Wednesday 3 July. The exhibitions will be open to the general public on Thursday 4, Friday 5 (between 1700hrs and 2000hrs) and Saturday 6 July (between 0830hrs and 1230hrs). The Engineering Building on the University Campus will be hosting the projects exhibition presented by the final year B.Eng.(Hons) students in its laboratories and halls. The projects of the B.Sc.I.T.(Hons) can be viewed at the Computing Building - Dar Guzeppi Zahra. Entrance for both exhibitions is from Car Park 2 or follow the signs along the ringroad.
