The Ambassador of the People's Republic of China visits University Last year, the University of Malta's Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence received a gift of twenty computers and six printers from the Government of the People's Republic of China. These computers are currently installed in one of the Department's laboratories and are much used by both staff and students for teaching and research. China's Ambassador to Malta, H.E. Liu Zhengxiu, recently visited the laboratories accompanied by the Rector, Professor Roger Ellul-Micallef, Professor Paul Micallef, Chairman of the Board of Studies for I.T. and Mr Michael Rosner, Head of the Dept. of Computer Science and A.I.
