Welcome to the Webpage of the Department of the Electrical and Information Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, University of Ruhuna. We are located at Hapugala nearby the beautiful coastal city, Galle, in the Southern province of Sri Lanka. Our department is one of the pioneering departments of the Faculty of Engineering commenced in Year 2000.

Since its inception in Year 2000, the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering has become a regional plus national hub for innovation, research excellence and community services in the country. The Department has already produced 750 graduates and these graduates hold key positions in both Industry and Academia, not only in Sri Lanka even in many other countries of the globe.

The Department Electrical and Information Engineering prioritizes teaching activities students through a fully accredited degree program. The undergraduate students in the department have access to a wide range of course modules in Electric Power Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering and Software Engineering. The department has fully equipped laboratory facilities in areas such as Electric Machines, Power Systems and High Voltage Engineering, Renewable Energy, Electronics, Communication Systems, Robotics, and Control Systems so that students acquire sufficient hands on experience required to be competitive in their fields of expertise.

In addition, as a department, we always push beyond the boundaries of knowledge and practice in Engineering through various research activities thus often has received national and international recognition. Currently, the department engages formal courses that lead to M.Phil degrees in Electrical and Information Engineering, and Masters Programs in Telecommunication Engineering and Electric Power Engineering will be offered immediately.

Moreover, we are awaited to commence a new degree program, B.Sc. (Eng.) in Computer Engineering. This will create an opening for us to cater stimulating demands in the fields of Computer and Software Engineering.

If you have any comments and queries, please contact us so that we will be returned you at our earliest convenience.

The University of Ruhuna is one of the leading universities in Sri Lanka. It was established by a Special Presidential Decree on 1st September, 1978 as Ruhuna University College to fulfil a long cherished desire of the people in Southern Province, Sri Lanka.  Hence, the University of Ruhuna has a proud history of more than 40 years and with extending its service to the motherland having 10 Faculties with 57 Departments at present.

The Faculty of Engineering of University of Ruhuna was established on 1st July 1999 at Hapugala, Galle. The first batch of students was admitted on 27th March, 2000. This is the third state Engineering Faculty in Sri Lanka after those at University of Peradeniya and University of Moratuwa. The Faculty consists of four Academic Departments, namely Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Information Engineering, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, and Interdisciplinary Studies. At the commencement, the faculty offered three (03) General Engineering Degree Programs specialized in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Information Engineering, and Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering with a total intake of 100 students. The annual student intake of the faculty was increased later and now it is recorded as 250.

The B.Sc. (Eng.) in Electrical and Information Engineering program has

  • 75 student intake per year.
  • 21 permanent staff members.
  • A broader curriculum mainly to cover areas such as Electric Power Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering and Software Engineering, allowing students even to be specialized in aforesaid areas at subsequent levels of the Degree Program.

Seventeen (17) batches of students were already graduated by the Year 2020.

Moreover, with 2018/2019 Advanced Level (A/L) intake, the total intake will be increased to 275 with the introduction of new Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture Degree Program.

The Faculty of Engineering, University of Ruhuna was established on 1st July 1999 at Hapugala, Galle. First batch of students was admitted on 27th March 2000. This is the third state Engineering Faculty in Sri Lanka after those at University of Peradeniya and University of Moratuwa.

The infrastructure for the faculty was well supported and driven by one of the former Education Ministers (the late) Honorable Richard Pathirana. As a result, within a short period of time (in 3 years), a large scale infrastructure complex was built at Hapugala, including three Department Buildings with Laboratories, an Administration Building, a Computer Centre, a Guest House, a Lecture Theater Complex with two large Drawing Offices, three Student Hostels, a Canteen with Medical Unit and Student Center, a Library; twenty Staff Quarters, internal roads and a Security Building. All of these facilities were designed for quick and easy access, and ample provision was made for future expansion.

Academic Departments

The Faculty consists of four academic departments, namely the Departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Information Engineering, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, and Interdisciplinary Studies. The first three departments offer B.Sc. (Eng.) degrees in disciplines as indicated in their department titles. Since the Academic Advisory Committee decided to incorporate a substantial amount of multi-disciplinary knowledge into engineering education, the Department of Inter Disciplinary Studies was introduced. As stated above, this department does not offer any Degree Program, but extends support by delivering courses in Mathematics, Management, Engineering Economics, Communication, Humanities, Social Sciences, Arts, Professional Ethics and other similar multi-disciplinary areas.

Semester-based System for Engineering Education

From the start, the faculty introduced a semester-based system for Engineering Education of students. In this system, a year is divided into two semesters, and a semester continues for a period of nineteen weeks in total. The time allocation for a semester is further divided as; First Half (7 weeks), Recess (1 week), Second Half (7 weeks), Study Period (1 week), Examination (2 weeks) and Vacation (1 week). The two other Engineering Faculties at Peradeniya and Moratuwa have adopted a similar semester-based system two years thereafter, replacing their old style British system of year-end examinations.
