On Monday, 17th February 2014, the Department of Systems and Control Engineering was awarded second place for Scientific Innovation at the Malta Innovation Awards 2013. The Department participated with the ‘Brain-Controlled Music Player’, an M.Sc. by Research project developed by Ms. Rosanne Zerafa under the supervision of Dr. Tracey Camilleri and co-supervisor Dr. Owen Falzon, led by Prof. Kenneth Camilleri. The Malta Innovation Awards is held by the Ministry for the Economy, Investment and Small Business with the aim to recognize the effort and work by individuals or companies which took a step further in their work and created a unique, feasible product or concept. Well done to the team!!



euRobotics Week 2013

PRESS RELEASE Brussels / Malta, 18 Nov 2013

Robots for everyone 

European Robotics Week 2013 – 25th of November to 1st of December 2013

Robots  are the future! No surprise that robots occupy the mind  of  youngsters, teenagers,  students – everybody. Robots are cool – not so much when watching them performing supernatural actions in SciFi movies, but it is much more fun to build them, to let them move like an insect, to have them play football or dance on a stage like a puppet. European Robotics Week is about translating this excitement into valuable educational practice, motivating to learn the insights of natural science and mathematics, but also to develop a responsible opinion for the use of robotics in our society. 

Malta joins the event for the third consecutive time

For the third consecutive time, Malta will be joining this highly educational event.  The University of Malta (the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Engineering), the MCAST, STC Training Centre and ICE Malta will be hosting around 650 primary and secondary school students from Malta and Gozo. This year’s participation sees an increase of over 250 students over the previous year and activities are being conducted by professionals, lecturers and educators at the various venues throughout the week.  The activities include inspiring presentations, talks, exhibitions and hands-on workshops using educational robotics kits.

Robotics spur interest in STEM subjects in school

Robotics  is  not  only  for  nerds.  Tens  of  thousands  of  school  children  in  Europe,  who  might  have  no interest in technical subjects, change their mind. Robots can do what no educator or teacher was able to  do:  to  get  them  motivated  to  learn  not  only  the  basics  of  science,  technology,  engineering and mathematics (STEM), but also to go on for an exploratory, self-motivated learning path, to learn how to learn without a teacher.

 European Robotics Week: Events all over Europe, squeezed into a single week

This year during the European Robotics Week industry companies, research institutes, and universities have again the possibility to raise public awareness in the field of robotics by offering various robotics related  activities.  With  open  labs,  exhibitions,  challenges,  robots  in  action  on  public  squares,  school visits  with  lectures  on  robotics,  guided  tours  for  pupils  and  much  more,  students of all ages can be inspired. Just as in 2011 and 2012, there is the possibility to show all robotics activities live online for the whole world to see here: www.robotics-labs.eu.

 Robotics – A key element for dealing with societal challenges in Europe

Stimulating  the  youth  and  all  grown-ups  who  want  to  join  the  many  tours  and  events  has  a  second, equally important effect: to become aware of what robots can do in our society. To learn that robotics provides a solution for many societal challenges, namely: to do a job in dangerous work areas; or, to help  re-establishing  industries  in  Europe  to  produce  wonderful  technological  highlights.  Many laboratories participating in European Robotics Week even show how robots could, in the future, help elderly persons staying longer at home.

 Background and History 

European Robotics Week was born out of the initiative and desire of the European Robotics community of bringing robotics research and development closer to the European public. Its main aim is to inspire students of all ages to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and also to inform the general public about the real impact of robotics in the society.

 After the great success of the 2011 and 2012 editions,  this third  edition  of  the  week  will  take  place  from  25th  of  November  to  1st  of  December  2013  in  23 European Countries and will have the presence of special guests like Tony Dyson, the creator of the famous robot R2-D2 from the Star Wars films, and Tomotaka Takahashi, the robot designer of KIROBO, the first speaking humanoid robot in outer space. 

 Credentials and Contacts

The  European  Robotics  Week  is  possible  thanks  to  the  voluntary  work  of  all  the  organisations  and people involved in robotics organisations across Europe.

The National Coordinator for Malta is Mr. Paul Cassar of IMS Ltd and is organised with the support of the Department of eLearning.  Further details may be obtained by email to info@imsmalta.com or Tel: 21345102 or 79463669.
