Professor Maurice Grech, the dean of the faculty of engineering explained that the projects reflect the areas of development and research interests of the academic staff members within the six departments. On the mechanical engineering side these include; product development technologies and methodologies, rapid prototyping, robotics, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, development of materials, design of coatings and surface treatments. Research interest on the electrical side embrace; digital imagery, microsystems, design and implementation of an electric car, renewable energy power systems, network modeling and communication systems. The students take the tutors proposal, add on a lot of hard work and enthusiasm, not to mention their ingenuity to give projects their own twist.
External examiners have remarked time after time on the high level of final-year projects and indeed the engineering course in general. Graduates from the faculty of engineering over the past decades have proved themselves in the field and distinguished themselves when furthering their studies overseas.
