Sri Lanka included into the Region 10. So under Region 10, Sri Lankan section can sponsor Local sections & chapters, Students branches ...etc. Since Student Branches are the backbone of the IEEE student program and that IEEE has created a variety of resources here to ensure that they are successful in their work, a requirement to form a student branch in the Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya emerged. As the dedication of the students and the academic staff of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering became a success, a student branch in the Peradeniya chapter was established successfully in2009.
With the funding aids from IEEE, the student branch was able to conduct a series of programs to improve professionalism, intellectual activity, service to humanity, global focus, trust and respect …etc of its members while also focusing non-members with the second priority. Activities such as workshops, seminars, field visits, competitions were organized to achieve these goals. The students were always inspired to join IEEE and the members were always taken first for all the events which would encourage the other students also to join IEEE. The ultimate goal of IEEE student Branch, University of Peradeniya is to sponsor for a better future by empowering today student with the strength of IEEE.
