Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering is a multi-disciplinary field that integrates exciting and diverse disciplines such as design, robotics, systems engineering, automation, mechatronics, sustainable engineering, manufacturing, operations management etc.

The Department of Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering was first established in 1976 as the Department of Production Engineering. Up to now, over 1000 graduates have graduated with specialization in Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering. The department aims to develop the profile of the graduate in two major complementary areas:

(1) Technological mastery highlighting the skills of harnessing technological resources at all levels, with greater emphasis on activities at the shop floor level with a clear awareness of the strategic management implications;

(2) Mastery of the management of technological resources with a greater emphasis on design and operation of manufacturing systems, working in close liaison with strategic management and enterprise management with a good knowledge of manufacturing technology.

The student is free to make his/her choice by selecting the optional courses appropriately. The core subjects are designed to suit both categories.

    The research papers titled ‘A study on how organisations perceive the synergy between Lean and Industry 4.0’ received the best research paper awards in the 'Technology Management’ track at the 8th International Moratuwa Engineering Research Conference (MERCon) held on the 28th July 2022. The paper was based on the final year research project by Chiran Kodippili and Rajeev Karunanayake under the supervision of Dr. Prasanna Illankoon who was formerly at the Department of Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering, University of Peradeniya.
    The two young authors consider this to be a great start to their academic and professional careers as the research spread across the scopes of both academia and the industry. While there were many who contributed, the authors specially acknowledge the support of MAS Holdings (Pvt) Ltd for their inputs. Going ahead, the authors hope to further develop the proposed Lean x Industry 4.0 framework into an industry ready mode.
