The first program of ‘Talk to school’ conducted by the Young Members Section Committee of the Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka is scheduled to be held at Rahula Collage Mathara on 14th February 2019. It is all about engineers going back to their Alma Mater and sharing their experiences, educating the importance of engineering profession, how they become engineers and the road to become a successful engineer.


Target group of Students

For G.C.E A/L students: The main purpose of this program is to help the students who have chosen maths and sciences to know that engineering careers are creative, rewarding and fun, and to encourage those who show an interest in engineering.

For G.C.E O/L students: To help young students see that maths and science can be applied in creative and useful ways – and inspire them before choosing their subjects before the A/L. It is presumed that the best way to engage with this age range will be through talking to the schools and suggesting some follow-up ideas.


What we TALK?

We talk about What is Engineering? Why anybody become an Engineer? Which type of Engineering should you choose? What are employment prospects? Where do Engineers work?

We present the idea that Engineering is behind everything by providing examples of the world’s most pressing problems handled by Engineers. Also how professionally registered Engineers are being respected like other major professions. Further we talk about the IESL, who is a Chartered Engineer and how to achieve the status.


The conduct of the Program

The program lasts for 4 hours with interactive speeches and activities to give an inspirational and energetic impression about Engineers. The Main speeches will be delivered by Eng. A. Manamperi (Vice President, IESL, and Council Member) and Eng. P.W. Sarath (Fellow- Council Member). The other personals are selected from the Engineering Students, Members of the IESL who are Old Boys of Rahula College, Matara. A Leaflet will be distributed during the event for benefit of the students.
