  Welcome to the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Peradeniya.

Welcome to the first, and undoubtedly the best, Engineering Faculty in Sri Lanka, which has produced some of the exceptional professional engineers the country has ever known, who serve across the borders, all over the world. The Engineering Faculty is one of the 8 faculties of the University of Peradeniya; the most prestigious university in Sri Lanka located in the idyllic setting at the foothills of the Hantana mountain range. Endowed with a rich culture and heritage, Engineering Faculty at Peradeniya offers a unique, comprehensive and best of its kind undergraduate education. Though there are many rich aspects of the degree program we conduct and many cases of exceptional students’ performances, we have been serving the nations, mostly in silence, since 1950.


The Engineering Faculty has been maintaining a long-standing reputation for excellence in engineering education thanks to the well qualified and dedicated team of academic and support staff. Nationally and internationally accredited curriculum of the degree programme has been planned to offer the students a rich engineering education through a well thought, stream lined and industry oriented, array of technical and non-technical courses, field works and industrial training that maintain a good balance, and overall standard, of sound theoretical background and industrial exposure.


The Faculty runs many postgraduate programs; research degrees as well as taught courses, leading to masters’ and PhD degrees in different disciplines of engineering. Further, the Faculty actively interacts with the industry and provides many avenues for delivery of expertise to the society through individual departments as well as through Engineering Design Centre, which is the commercial arm of the services provided by the Faculty. Further, in aid of career/professional development of young engineers and technical staff of the industry, the Faculty conducts many diploma level courses with the participation of experts from all over the world.


In this residential university, students of the Engineering Faculty are blessed with unparalleled opportunities that no other engineering Faculty in the country offers. Studying at Peradeniya provides a unique exposure to diverse cultural and intellectual climate representing the essences of all corners of the country, which becomes the best and the most memorable youthful experience for many. Students entering the Faculty have the best opportunity to become a well-rounded engineering graduate with a world acclaimed engineering degree. As time tested and proven, thanks to the quality and the standard we maintain, our degree opens up many doors of opportunities for developing great professional careers anywhere in the world.
