Engineers launch chapter at MUST


The Malawi Institution of Engineers (MIE) has launched a chapter at the Malawi University of Science and Technology (Must).

MIE said it realises that engineering is instrumental in driving socio-economic development hence the need to strengthen the institution.

MIE Vice president Wilson Chirwa said the country needs to regulate and enforce a code of ethics and professionalism through the establishment of engineering bodies in various disciplines.


He said the coming in of Must as a member of MIE will help grow the membership beyond the current 700 engineers.

“MIE will strive that it remains relevant and beneficial to all its stakeholders in line with its vision and mission.

“It is for this reason that MIE and Board of Engineers, will soon merge to form MEI. The new MEI bill has already been drafted and it is expected to be taken to Parliament before end of this year,” he said.


Must Engineering Head of Department Edwin Khundi said the chapter will help enhance a modern engineering culture.

He said the young engineers will have a platform to interact with senior engineers and learn practical skills and modern knowledge.

“The partnership will also help the young engineers to learn entrepreneurship skills, so that after they graduate, they should have entrepreneurial skills,” Khundi said.

During the event, top performing students from the engineering department were also awarded for their hard work.
