Postponed: Engineering Excellence Awards and Gala Nite 2021

Dear Fellow Engineer,

The Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka NSW Chapter presents Engineering Excellence Awards annually to honour outstanding achievements in engineering.

However, the Institute of Engineers Sri Lanka NSW Chapter committee decided to postpone this year’s Engineering Excellence awards and Gala nite to year 2022 after taking into consideration the current status of the Covid-19 pandemic in NSW. The new date and venue for the events will be notified later.

IESL NSW Chapter looks forward to your continuous support and participation in the Chapter’s future activities.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,
Nilakshi Perera
Secretary, IESL NSW Chapter


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 welcomes the participation and establishing relationships with all engineers.
