IESL Induction & Graduation Ceremony 2019

Induction & Graduation Ceremony 2019 - The Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka (IESL)

The Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka (IESL) held its Induction and Graduation Ceremony for this year on Friday, 16th  August 2019 at the Main Hall, BMICH.

Senior Professor Sujeewa Amarasena , Vice-Chancellor, University of Ruhuna was the Chief Guest for the event.

Eng. (Prof.) T M Pallewatta, the President of IESL in his message for the event states

“Today, you are officially entering into two tiers of a very noble fraternity. In whichever context one may take, Engineers are supposed to be creators, innovators and maintainers of civilisations as we know today. But be forewarned, greatness and fame come hand in hand with responsibility and accountability. Your achievement today is inseparably interleaved with your responsibility as a professional to the public, to the flora and fauna in our environment and even may extend beyond this world. As Chartered Engineers, you will certainly feel the flavour of what I say when you take the oath today by reciting our code of ethics.”

 The IESL is the apex professional body for the engineering profession in Sri Lanka. This annual event is where Associate Members of the IESL get inducted to the Corporate Membership of the institution as Chartered Engineers, Graduands of the IESL Engineering Course would be presented their certificates and winners of scholarships in the Junior Inventor of the Year Competition 2018 for school children would receive scholarships. This year 409 Associate Engineers were inducted into the fold of  Corporate Membership as Chartered Engineers and 28 received certificate for passing out as Graduands.

IESL, has sole authority in the country to confer Chartered Engineer status following stringent professional reviews. As member of the International Engineering Alliance (IEA), the global body governing educational accords and competence agreements, IESL accredits, on the latter’s behalf, engineering degree programs for the Washington Accord (WA) and registers International Professional Engineers for the International Professional Engineers Agreement (IPEA), giving international recognition. IESL is also a provisional signatory to the Sydney Accord of the IEA which will pave the way for accrediting engineering technology degree programs in the future.

The event  was also an occasion for rewarding winners of various memorial award schemes worked out by IESL to promote practical orientation among final year undergraduates encouraging industrial training and project work, research among young engineers, performance at Professional Review exams, etc. all with the aim of uplifting the profession”
