B.Sc.I.T. Final Year Projects Exhibition Mr
Lawrence Zammit, Director, Technology in Education, opened last week's
Final Year Projects Exhibition at the University of Malta. Over 40 students,
all of whom have just finished the B.Sc.I.T. (Hons) course, welcomed parents
and visitors on campus for this annual event. Projects range from system
management applications to system modeling, to theoretical measurement
techniques. Some were sponsored by Industry, which will surely strengthen
links with the world of work, while others reflect the research areas of
the lecturers and supervisors. The accompanying booklet provides a permanent
record of the hard work that went into these diverse projects what are
an important component of the overall class grade obtained by each student.
The project is also the flagship that each student carries on her or his
first experience as a full-time employee in the Industry.
Through this experience in research a few of the graduates will be enticed
to remain in the research arena. In fact, over the past years several of
the students went on to gain postgraduate degrees and doctorates from other
universities especially in the UK.
