Dr. Kulasinghe, a great example to engineers - Minister

Engineer Dr. A. N. S. Kulasinghe is a great example to engineers, who delay construction projects with ulterior motives, Construction, Engineering Services, Housing and Common Amenities Minister Wimal Weerawansa said.

The minister was addressing the 93rd commemoration ceremony of the late Engineer Dr.A.N.S Kulasinghe held at the Wimalasurendra Auditorium of the Institution of Engineers, Sri Lanka (IESL), recently.

"Dr. Kulasinghe is one of the greatest engineers produced by Sri Lanka," the minister said.

"He was a strong advocate of the use of indigenous human resources for the country's development and firmly believed that Sri Lankan engineers are second to none, in their talents and capabilities to undertake projects of any complexity.

"He himself had trail blazed the use of many new technologies in the many projects he has to his credit. The 'Kulasinghe - CPC' System of Prestressing concrete, System of large diameter concrete piling developed in 1951 for the construction of port structures, including, a novel method of floating out and sinking the cylinders are among them," Minister Weerawansa added.

Dr. Kulasinghe loved Sri Lanka and gave all the credit to his achievements to his Motherland. He never thought about what he earned.

"He is the person who introduced the most suitable method and technology for Sri Lanka's engineering field. Dr. Kulasinghe was a very honest person who used the country's resources sparingly," the Minister said.

The minister distributed the Dr. Kulasinghe scholarships to 66 students who passed the Grade Five Scholarship examination-2012 at the ceremony. He also distributed gifts and prizes to the students of the Udamwita Kulasinghe Vidyalaya as well.
