The Manufacturing Engineering Association (MEA), spearheaded by the staff and students of the Department of Production Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Peradeniya, is organizing the first ever symposium dedicated to Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering in Sri Lanka.
Manufacturing sector is the backbone of a country’s economy. Sri Lanka, despite being rich with natural resources and an educated and skilled workforce, is lagging behind its regional counterparts in this aspect. Realizing this, the government in its most recent policy review, has underlined the importance of a dynamic and sophisticated manufacturing industry for the country to meet development goals. Industry and academia go hand in hand. Higher educational institutions produce engineers and technologists for tomorrow, and they have a key role to play in industrializing the nation, by providing the latest technical know how, and conducting breakthrough research for the industry. MIES is the first national-level platform of its kind, solely dedicated to bring together industrialists, academics, and researchers to discuss, share and showcase their needs, views, findings, technologies and creations.
