IEEE Wayamba University Of Sri Lanka Student Branch
IEEE is the world's largest professional association advancing in innovation and technological excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted "voice" for engineering, computing and technology information around the globe.
Identifying that technology students are the heartthrob of tomorrow’s innovation, the IEEE community has come up with means to get students involved in their activities. Students who seek to be a part of this global community are allowed to get organized as Student Branches, and as the Wayamba University of Sri Lanka, we did not want to be left out!
Our first appearance at an IEEE event was in 2014 at the IEEE Sri Lanka Section SYW congress. Thereafter, our students took part in various IEEE Contests and Forums and were looking forward to interact more with the community who shared mutual interests. That was when we realized that mere participation was not sufficient to identify ourselves in so vast a community.
IEEE Wayamba University Of Sri Lanka Student Branch was established on 18th November 2015, and we are the youngest student branch currently operating in Sri Lanka. We are proud to say that we have made quite a lot of progress in our activities within a very short period of time. We started with absolutely nothing and looking back we have accomplished much with the support of numerous personnel towards whom our wholehearted gratitude is extended.
Our Strength is the many willing and competent volunteers who are always ready for challenges and opportunities to interact. If it was not for their energy and enthusiasm we would not be here, being a part of something much larger than ourselves.
A logo always has more charm when it has its own weight.
Designed by Dinu Sri Madusanka, the logo of our Student Branch is charming as follows;
• Yapahuwa lion – represents Wayamba heritage, uniqueness and power
• Back circle - represents logic 0 indicating the Department of Computing and Information Systems
• PCB strips - represents the Department of Electronics
• 4 PCB strips – represents the four active academic batches
