UESA stands for University Engineering Students Association and is a non-political student organisation which is directed towards students who are enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Malta. Since its birth, UESA’s main aim is to help the engineering student familiarise and accustom himself with university life, offering help and aid for his various needs and also providing him with both local and foreign working traineeships.
UESA’s objectives are achieved by building a good relationship with the staff at the faculty so as to serve as a bridge between the student and the lecturers, and by organising various activities such as parties, football tournaments and other events to spice up the engineering student’s life during his studies. UESA also organises conferences, where engineers are invited to give talks on different subjects to help the aspiring engineer get an insight in his future profession. UESA is also recognised by the Chamber of Engineers, by having its own active representative in the chamber’s executive.
In 2004, UESA was officially admitted in the EYE – European Young Engineers council, thus also representing the engineering student on an international level. Basically UESA is an organisation which does its utmost to be close to the student to aid him in his daily life at the university academically and compliment his studies with various activities spread throughout the year.
