L-istipendji la tmisshomx

Id-dekan tal-fakultà tal-Inġinerija fl-Università ta’ Malta huwa rappurtat mit-Times online (fl-2013) li qed jgħid illi l-istipendji għamlu żmienhom. Jidhirlu li l-flus li illum nonfqu fl-istipendji huma meħtieġa għar-riċerka u għall-laboratorji.

Il-ġlieda għall-istipendji għamilniha snin ilu u ħadd ma għandu d-dritt li jipprova jdawwar l-arloġġ lura. L-istipendji huma neċessità u servew tul dawn l-aħħar tletin sena biex wasslu lejn l-edukazzjoni terzjarja ħafna iktar żgħażagħ illi mingħajr l-istipendji kienu jintilfu u ma jitħarrġux. Bis-saħħa tal-istipendji mxejna l-quddiem, imma mhux biżżejjed. Hemm min, sforz iċ-ċirkustanzi tal-ħajja li jiffaċċja huwa u familtu għandu ħtieġijiet li l-istipendju ma jistax jissodisfa.

L-istipendji għaldaqstant jeħtieġu li jiżdiedu u mhux li jonqsu.

Dan ma jfissirx li ma hemmx ħtieġa ta’ iktar fondi għar-riċerka. Anke dan hu neċessità.

Ikun tajjeb għad-dekan tal-fakultà tal-Inġinerija li jħares il-quddiem u mhux lura.

  1. I agree with you Carmel.The stipendiums should increase.Even money for the research study should increase.Why should we go back.We want better students.But if we take of the stipendiums we will loose good students.Some parents cannot afford all the expences..

  2. The question of stipends needs a lot more thought than just a silly comment from the Dean of Engineering and a summary dismissal from Carmel Caccopardo.
    1. I suggest the form of stipend should be re-considered so as to introduce a fee element into it. This would produce extra revenue from EU students, who at present attend UoM without paying any fees, a situation probably unique in the EU. This situation has arisen because local politicians have always treated stipends as a sacred cow. So entry into the EU caught them with their pants down on this matter.
    2. It is certain that “Some parents cannot afford all the expences..”; it is equally certain that some, indeed many parents can well afford to supply their student offspring with cars, going by the fact that one sees more cars than people at UoM and bybuy cars
