Eng. Arjuna Manamperi, C.Eng, graduate of the University of Peradeniya Engineering Faculty – 1981 batch, has donated a collection of books recently to the Students’ Chapter of the IESL at the newly established Engineering Faculty, South Eastern University of Sri Lanka (SEUSL), Oluvil.

The donation included books drawn from a wide range of disciplines in engineering, management and general topics of interest to the engineering students. Dr. S.M.Junaideen, Dean of the faculty of Engineering commending the willingness and interest shown by Eng.Manamperi, through this gesture, to contribute to the development of the new faculty has also stated that“Eng. Arjuna has shown a way to other engineers and well-wishers to help in the development of the emerging faculty.”

The IESL Students’ Chapter was declared open in October 2013 at the Faculty of Engineering, SEUSL by the immediate past president, Eng. Tilak De Silva.

Sri Lanka's public universities could use the help of alumni, especially the diaspora members like Eng. Arjuna Manamperi, to boost their library collection with up to date literature. One of the issues for an overseas member would be the cost of shipment to Sri Lanka. There are concessionary rates for used education material via sea mail from various countries that would bring the cost down significantly even though the delivery will be delayed. Another approach is to do a book collection in an overseas region and use bulk rates. Last but not least, each one of the IESL  members local and overseas could bring a book or two to Sri Lanka on their travels and donate to their university or any other. It will be one of the easiest things we could for a place that gave us a lot!
