The department has taken an initiative to provide its undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to be a part of the research culture and to contribute to the national development through research and development. As part of this initiative, it has been organizing a project symposium (Electrical and Electronic Engineering Research and Project Symposium - EEERaPS) to showcase the output of the research by its students to the industry and government. This has been a regular event in the calendar of the DEEE. The inaugural Electrical and Electronic Engineering Project Symposium (EEEPS) was successfully held on the 29th of August 2013 at the Wimalasurendra Auditorium, Institute of Engineers Sri Lanka. The event was graced by many distinguished members representing the academia and industry and the tradition was continued thereafter. EEERaPS is usually followed by “EEES Night” where the past and present members of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Society (EEES), University of Peradeniya for a pleasant get together.

EEERaPS 2023

6th Electrical and Electronic Engineering Research and Project Symposium (EEERaPS2023)




The inception of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Research and Project Symposium (EEERaPS) is based on the need felt by the department to highlight the developments and research activities with a practical value and share the experience and outcomes with the policymakers, industry and other interested parties among the general public.

EEERaPS was started in 2014 at small scale and continued to grow rapidly in the years 2015, 2016, and 2017 towards 2020. Since inception, the theme of the EEERaPS has been “Research and Development – Path to National Development”.


Relation to the Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are a collection of seventeen interlinked objectives designed to serve as a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet now and into the future". These were formulated in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) as part of the Post-2015 Development Agenda. SDGs are set as a road-map to take each country forward to 2030. In particular, the following goals are directly targeted by all thrust areas of EEERaPS, while several other targets are achieved indirectly or by individual thrust areas:

 ⮚  Goal 8: Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

 ⮚  Goal 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.

 ⮚  Goal 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Developmen.
