We have taken a giant step towards serving our members, engineering profession, and the society. As a first step, we have launched the web front of the system on the 16 of July, 2013. We plan to release access to "members only" areas in the next few days. Current members of all levels will receive access credentials via email.
IESL Members' Responsibility: Remember, this system is yours, you have to maintain up-to date information in your profile.. The key is your E-mail. If you receive access instruction mail into your company email or official one, please change it to your private email address (Ex. firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com). Also you cannot have the same email as your family member's if he/she a member at IESL
At go-live, there are about 12,500 members of all categories. We have worked diligently to contact each one of them during the data cleansing process to obtain email and other vital information. Yet, not all of them have a valid email address thus preventing IESL sending login credentials. If YOU are a current member and did not receive an email by 31st of July, 2013, please contact the Membership Department ( go to Contact IESL). We also suggest you to check your Spam folder for an email from the Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka.
Update Your Profile: Once you login to the system, you will be taken to your profile (if not click MyIESL and go to Member Self Services) where you have to update your information appropriately. We encourage you to change your first name to descriptive pattern for easy recognition by your peers, check and complete your contact information, upload a picture, indicate your IESL Provincial Center, select the discipline by which you obtained membership, educational / professional information, your activities with IESL, etc. In other words, fully complete the profile, it is to your advantage.
Set Privacy Preferences: By going to Privacy settings you can control what you want to show to the Public and Members of the institution who are your colleagues.
