The Engineering Design Center (EDC) of the faculty of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya has been operating as the commercial arm of the Faculty of engineering for the last 24 years since its inception in 1993. With nearly one quarter of a century of experience in interacting lively with the industry, the EDC has decided to expand the range of professional engineering services offered by the EDC to carter advanced industry needs. As the first step of the latter expansion process, EDC starts by briefing the industry about the modern facilities and capabilities in hand through a small booklet. It can be downloaded here. Further EDC organizes a series of seminars, initially to the faculty members and then to the industry, which will provide a forum to discuss the future direction and the ways and means to improve the professional engineering expert services offered by the EDC. The first seminar was held on Friday the 29 th September 2017, at the Faculty of Engineering. There were about 60 participants from the academic staff of the faculty and the EDC greatly appreciates their valuable inputs.
