By | Academic | No Comments

Over the past few weeks students have had the opportunity to visit some of the leading ICT companies/agencies in Malta. The visits were conducted at ICTSA’s 5 Gold Sponsors: MITAKPMG Crimsonwing , ShireburnCCBill, and Bit8.

Through these visits students had the opportunity to see first hand the inner workings and corporate cultures at play. In these 6 Visits, students were also exposed to different careers within these organisations and the industry as a whole. ICTSA would like to thank all the students that took part and our sponsors for hosting us.

Technolawgical: The iGaming Conference

By | Academic | No Comments

Għaqda Studenti Tal-Liġi and ICT Students’ Association have worked together to put forward the event: ‘TechnoLAWgical: The iGaming Conference’.

The conference will take place in the morning, and will include two panels of esteemed professionals in the field of iGaming. The first will discuss ‘iGaming in Malta and Europe’, an introductory session explaining the background of the field. The second will revolve around a fictitious case-study, in order to bring practical aspects to the fore. There will also be an iGaming Job Opportunities Workshop, which will cater for law students and ICT students separately.

Malta’s iGaming industry has flourished over recent years, allowing for a significant increase in career opportunities in both legal and technological fields, and ultimately establishing the country as one of the front runners of iGaming.

The purpose of this conference is to bridge the gap between the two professions, making it relevant to both law and ICT students.

  • For Law students, it should be of particular interest to those studying gaming law, as well as those who lack basic knowledge of the topic and would like an introduction.
  • For ICT students, the conference will provide key insight into the gaming industry, placing future software developers in a more professionally advantageous position.

Below is how the conference will pan out:

10:00-10:05 Introduction
10:05-10:25 Foreword by Special Guests
10:25-11:10 Panel 1: iGaming in Malta and Europe
