    The Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka (IESL) which is the premier professional body for engineers in Sri Lanka has gained reputation as an important provider of engineering education in the country. The history of the IESL Engineering Study Programme dates back to 1967. Over the years it has undergone several reforms in order to improve its standards in terms of quality and relevance and meeting the requirements of the local industry.

    The IESL College of Engineering (Pvt) Ltd. (IESLCE) is a subsidiary of the IESL. It was established in 2011 as the education arm of the IESL with the intention of delivering engineering education in a more efficient and organized manner. The IESLCE is determined to become the best choice for tertiary education in engineering for those who have a passion to become future engineers, but deprived of gaining entry to state universities.It provides the students high quality education in major fields of engineering, while fostering innovation and creativity among them in order to produce leaders in the engineering profession who could contribute to country's GDP.

    With the rapid development in the country, the need for qualified Engineers is on the rise and the few State Universities are unable to cater to this need. As a reputed Educational Institute, the IESLCE has an important role to play in providing competent engineers to fill this gap. Over the past few years, the IESLCE Engineering study programme has gained a good reputation and popularity and it has become a top choice for those who aspire to become future engineers.
