Abstract: The Faculty for the Built Environment of the University of Malta is currently changing its civil/structural engineering degree programmes. This paper explores the background, in the context of the history of the professions of architects and civil engineers in Malta, and of recent developments in the teaching of civil and structural engineering in the University. The paper explains the rationale behind the proposed changes, and outlines the new course structure which has been launched to replace the current integrated five-year bachelor level degree courses. Professional status of aspiring civil/structural engineers will eventually be achieved after the successful completion of a two-year professional masters course in engineering, (Civil and Structural Engineering), and a subsequent year of professional experience, (required by current national legislation). For admission to this second tier masters programme, candidates will have to successfully complete a three-year bachelor degree programme, and the preceding preparatory “design foundation studies” diploma year.
