Welcome to the Sri Lanka Group

IMechE Sri Lanka group was started in 1997. The first meeting was held at IESL with participation of over 75 members. The first chairman of Sri Lanka group was Rear Admiral K R L Perera. The group embarked on an aspirational target in 2016 to double its membership and to achieve 1000 members by end 2018. We are happy to inform that by Q3 2017 the membership was 935. The Sri Lanka group is set to achieve its membership development goal one year in advance. This is a testimony for performance of the Sri Lankan group.

Goals of the SL group board of management are:

• Increases student chapters
• Introduce more CPD programs
• Create a collaborative working platform with other engineering institutions

CPD Activity:

The group regularly arrange visits to manufacturing industries and other engineering services organizations. Seminars, lectures are presented at regular intervals to update members on current technology and new technology updates from overseas.

University Interaction

We are working closely with many leading universities in the country. There are four active student chapters in Sri Lanka.
