To establish IESL NSW Chapter as a dynamic hub for engineering excellence and collaboration, driving innovation and positive impact within our community and beyond.

NSW Chapter


Our mission is to cultivate a vibrant community of engineers dedicated to advancing knowledge, fostering collaboration, and driving positive change. Through lifelong learning, ethical practice, and advocacy, we empower our members to be leaders and innovators in engineering and technology, making a meaningful impact on society, not only in New South Wales but also in Australia, Sri Lanka and the world.


The IESL NSW Chapter, established in 2009 with Nihal Fernando as its inaugural chair, was incorporated in the same year. It holds the distinction of being the first overseas chapter of the Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka. Since its inception, the New South Wales Chapter has been an energetic and dynamic community of engineers dedicated to promoting the engineering profession and fostering collaboration among professionals from various countries.


Our engineering events showcase the forefront of technological innovation and engineering excellence, providing a unique platform for professionals to exchange ideas, network, and stay updated with the latest industry trends. Highlighting the significance of these gatherings, they serve not only as a bridge connecting the engineering community but also as a catalyst for fostering collaboration and inspiring future advancements.
