Who we are …
The Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka established the first overseas chapter in Sydney, New South Wales in 2009 to cater for the members of the institution residing in New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory. The main objective of the chapter is to provide a forum for professional engineers in NSW Australia, to foster the ideals of the profession while socialising in a friendly professional environment.
To achieve this objective, the chapter would organise discussions, training sessions, professional lectures, reward, and recognition, helping community projects through professional services and practising promoting and encouraging professional ethics.
Although the membership of the chapter is limited to the members of IESL, the services of the chapter will be open to all engineers in NSW and ACT. The chapter will have a strong relationship with engineers with Sri Lankan origin. However, in a rapidly globalising professional landscape, the chapter welcome the participation and establishing relationships with all engineers.
