Industrial Training


Semester 6 of the undergraduate programme consists of 24 weeks of continuous Industrial Training placement. The training placements are arranged by the Department so that every student gets an opportunity of training in both the Ceylon Electricity Board and one other industry related to Electrical Engineering. The Industrial Training module is assessed at the end via a viva voce and a written report. The module is mandatory and worth 6 non-GPA credits.

Industrial Training is meant to provide hands-on technical training related to the industry. Both public and private sector organizations in Electrical generation, transmission, utilization and IT, provide industrial training to Electrical undergraduates. Some such partners who provide training
opportunities in addition to Ceylon Electricity Board are Lanka Electricity Company Limited, Lanka Transformers Ltd., Airport & Aviation Authority, Ports Authority, Nikini Automation Pvt. Ltd., Ace Power Ltd, Lakdhanavi etc.

During this period, the undergraduates are supposed to learn how the theoretical principles learnt in the class room could be applied practically and demonstrate the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for an effective start of the engineering profession. The students will work with different categories of people in an industrial environment adopting to appropriate technical, environmental, economic and social constraints. Furthermore they will acquire knowledge of organizational, financial and human resource management.

Upon completion of the module, students submits an individual report detailing the experience gained during training and faces an interview for assessment and feedback. Evaluation of the training report is carried out by the Industrial Training Division of the Faculty of Engineering. The staff of the Department contributes to the evaluation process by conducting visits to training places to observe the performance of the trainees and also by being a member of the interview panel.
