Undergraduate Inventor of the Year (UIY) Competition



It’s said that necessity is the mother of all inventions. To fulfill those necessities, scientists try to understand how nature works, to manipulate it. Engineers create or invent things that could do it.


The Under Graduate Inventor of the Year (UIY) competition was established by the IESL to encourage and stimulate creativity and interest in inventions among engineering undergraduates in the country and provide opportunities for engineering undergraduates to organize and present their original inventions. It’s also a forum for networking within Sri Lanka engineering undergraduate students as well as members of industry and academia.


The  competition tries to inculcate basic principles for success in innovations such as having a stated goal, develop design criteria, background research, prepare preliminary designs and materials list, consider costs, manufacturing and user requirement, building  and testing prototypes, consider reliability, repair and servicing, final product testing, presentation of results etc.


Applications to take part in the competition  are called usually in May / June and preliminary selections made in the respective universities before the final competition is held at the IESL on a date in consultation with the Deans of Faculties of Engineering of universities before  October.
