About us

Message from the Dean, Prof. Ing. Carl J. Debono

Welcome. At the Faculty of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) within the University of Malta, we bring together people from across academic disciplines, from industry, from government, and from all backgrounds. The Faculty was set up in 2007 and is responsible for the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Communications and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Information Systems, and Microelectronics.

The Faculty is committed to excellence in research and in providing higher education of quality to meet industry’s needs today and tomorrow. We value the interdisciplinary skills that our students and researchers gain during their studies, visits or collaboration as this is what is needed to achieve breakthroughs that address the needs of society at large. Problems related to assistive living, health, transport, finance, security, privacy, energy, environment, and sustainable development all need novel technological solutions. As engineers and computer scientists, we strive to build a solid foundation in fundamental science whose principles are then applied for the benefit of humanity.

You are invited to talk with us and hopefully join us. If you are a prospective student, are you ready to learn scientific principles and how to apply these to real world problems, ask challenging questions, make high-impact contributions, and prepare for leadership in the exciting fields of ICT? If you are one of our alumni, welcome back! We treasure your experiences and achievements and invite you to have a look at our postgraduate offers. If you currently following a similar degree programme in another University, please visit us and collaborate with us. If you are in business, industry, or government, partner with us to research and develop novel cutting-edge solutions. If you are policymaker, turn to us for expert insight.

On our website you will find helpful links and specific points of contact to get you connected. I look forward to working together with you.

Prof. Carl J. Debono
