Death of IIESL founder president

Engineer B.R.M. Fernando, pioneer president of the Institution of Incorporated Engineers, Sri Lanka (IIESL) passed away on July 11. He was the president of the Institution during the sessions of 1977/78, 1978/79, 1979/80, 1980/81 and 1986/87. On completion of National Diploma in Technology from the Hardy Senior Technical College, he joined Industrial Development Board as an Engineering Diplomate. During this period there was an urgent necessity to establish a professional association to look after the interests of the Engineering Diplomate community.

BRM with the support of other committed Engineering Diplomates established All Ceylon Engineering Diplomates Association in 1977.

The establishment of Institution of Incorporated Engineers, Sri Lanka by an Act of Parliament as the only professional institution for engineering diplomates is the result of his dedication. He selected the training field as his career because he was keen in sharing his knowledge and experience with others.

At the time of death, he was functioning as Training Manager, Sri Lanka Ports Authority. He was to celebrate his 56th birthday in July this year. President and the Council of Management of IIESL request the members to assemble near the entrance to the Dehiwala/Mount Lavinia cemetery at 4.30 p.m. today to pay last respect to the Pioneer President.
