|The Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka (IESL) Becomes Full Member of WASHINGTON ACCORD|
In a major achievement, the IESL on Friday 13 June became a full signatory to the Washington Accord, paving the way for more global mobility and employment avenues for Sri Lankan engineers.
This was decided at a meeting of the International Engineering Alliance, the secretariat of the Washington Accord in Wellington, New Zealand. The summit had begun on June 9, and on the last day, June 13, all 15 signatory nations voted in favour of Sri Lanka. India too was accorded membership.
The Washington Accord was signed in 1989. It is an agreement between the bodies responsible for accrediting professional engineering degree programs in each of the signatory countries. It recognizes the substantial equivalency of programs accredited by those bodies, and recommends that graduates of accredited programs in any of the signatory countries be recognized by the other countries as having met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering. The Washington Accord covers professional engineering undergraduate degrees. Thereby the IESL joins an elite group of engineering institutions in the signatory countries to this Accord recognized worldwide as bodies capable of accrediting professional engineering degree programmes conducted in their countries.
The signatories to the Washington Accord as of 2013 are Australia, Canada, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, China, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, UK and USA.
Currently engineering courses being conducted at the Engineering Faculties of the Universities of Moratuwa, Peradeniya and Ruhuna are accredited by the IESL. Thus these accredited degrees will get recognition in all other Washington Accord signatory countries as equivalent to their own accredited degrees.
The IESL had been trying to obtain the full membership of Washington Accord for a number of years without success. The IESL NSW Chapter provided significant assistance to the IESL from 2013 to achieve this success. Please join us in celebrating this great professional achievement.
