About Us

The idea to create a society for like minded engineers and scientist living in the UK was conceived  by a group of Sri Lankan professionals in June 2007. Through the determination of this group of expatriates the Society of Sri Lankan Engineers and Scientist was born.
The interest in the society grew from the inaugural membership of 15 to its current membership of professionals. The membership consists of engineers and scientist from a wide range of disciplines and academia. The members, their spouses and friends meet about four to five times a year. The patron of the society, the honourable SL High Commissioner to the UK is very supportive of the society and has attended many of our gatherings.
The society encourages the interaction and exchange of ideas among its members, to better equip all of us in both our professional life in the UK and our voluntary service pursuits in our motherland. The senior members in the society are willing to mentor those who seek to develop their careers and gaining membership in the Chartered Institutions in the UK. We invite guest speakers from both the UK and SL to address the society on relevant topics of interest.
We organise social events and outings for the members and their families, to widen our network of contacts and friendships across the country.
The society is in discussion with the engineering institutions in Sri Lanka and the Universities to explore opportunities to assist, support and nurture the young talent. We have also met with the government departments in Sri Lanka with the view of offering our professional skills on a voluntary basis. Many of our members have been involved in various projects in the past and are currently engaged in a variety of activities in Sri Lanka.
