    Dear Fellow/Member/Associate Member/Affiliate Member,

    This communication is to convey the initiative taken by the 2018/2019 Council to ensure that the three types of Engineering Practitioners under the purview of IESL get registered with the ECSL, as required by the law of the country.

    As informed to the public by the Engineering Council, Sri Lanka (ECSL), practitioners of Engineering in Sri Lanka have to be registered under six designated categories in the ECSL on or before 2019/07/31out of which three categories (types) are under the purview of IESL, to be nominated with members of the Institution, as follows;

    Chartered Engineer - Corporate members of the IESL (namely Fellow and Member categories of the IESL)

    Associate Engineer - Associate members of the IESL

    Affiliate Engineer - Affiliate members of the IESL

    For the purpose of Registration, the ECSL will charge LKR 1,000/= +VAT (15%) per member per year. The Council at its 5th meeting for the Session 2018/2019, held on 2019/02/01 decided for this inaugural year (2019) to pay such registration fees for all members in your categories who are on the roll of IESL as of 2019/02/01, through IESL funds, provided that they fall under one of the following;

    1. The above 3 types of members (except life members) who have paid the membership fees for 2019 on or before 2019/02/01,

    2. The above 3  types of members (except life members) who have paid the membership fees for 2018 on or before 2018/11/30, but not paid for 2019 up to 2019/02/01 (These members will have to ensure that they pay the membership fees for 2019 on or before 2019/11/30),

    3. Above 3  types 
    of members who are Life Members (these members will have to pay ECSL registration fees through IESL for subsequent years {2020 onwards}, if they wish to continue ECSL registration, though they are exempt from paying IESL membership fees)

    NOTEAll three types of members, including Life Members among them, will have to pay ECSL registration fees through IESL from year 2020 onwards

    I would like to re-emphasise that this initiative was taken by the Council (at a projected expenditure of approximately LKR 18 Million) to ensure that the three types of Engineering Practitioners under the purview of IESL get registered with the ECSL as required by the law of Sri Lanka.

    The first program of ‘Talk to school’ conducted by the Young Members Section Committee of the Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka is scheduled to be held at Rahula Collage Mathara on 14th February 2019. It is all about engineers going back to their Alma Mater and sharing their experiences, educating the importance of engineering profession, how they become engineers and the road to become a successful engineer.


    Target group of Students

    For G.C.E A/L students: The main purpose of this program is to help the students who have chosen maths and sciences to know that engineering careers are creative, rewarding and fun, and to encourage those who show an interest in engineering.

    For G.C.E O/L students: To help young students see that maths and science can be applied in creative and useful ways – and inspire them before choosing their subjects before the A/L. It is presumed that the best way to engage with this age range will be through talking to the schools and suggesting some follow-up ideas.


    What we TALK?

    We talk about What is Engineering? Why anybody become an Engineer? Which type of Engineering should you choose? What are employment prospects? Where do Engineers work?

    We present the idea that Engineering is behind everything by providing examples of the world’s most pressing problems handled by Engineers. Also how professionally registered Engineers are being respected like other major professions. Further we talk about the IESL, who is a Chartered Engineer and how to achieve the status.


    The conduct of the Program

    The program lasts for 4 hours with interactive speeches and activities to give an inspirational and energetic impression about Engineers. The Main speeches will be delivered by Eng. A. Manamperi (Vice President, IESL, and Council Member) and Eng. P.W. Sarath (Fellow- Council Member). The other personals are selected from the Engineering Students, Members of the IESL who are Old Boys of Rahula College, Matara. A Leaflet will be distributed during the event for benefit of the students.


    This event is organized by the Young Members Section Committee of IESL in collaboration with IESL Ruhunu Chapter.
