Engineering is a profession directed to design, create, and analyze technological solutions with proper awareness of environmental factors such as safety, regulations, human factors, and cost. It is one of the fastest growing and exciting professions. Engineering applies not only scientific theories and mathematical methods, but also multiple skills such as creative thinking, computer modeling, attention to detail, communication skills, leadership, teamwork, etc.

Graduates of SLTC with the B.SC Hons (Eng) will possess high-level, up-to-date technical expertise in their specialized fields. All curricula are enriched with in-depth knowledge in mathematics, science and technology, integrated with the concepts of business and management.

SLTC Research (School of Engineering)

SLTC is home to highly qualified and motivated group of academics involved in top quality cutting edge research. Our academics takes part in a number of research projects in collaboration with researchers from various local and international universities and research institutes. Also, we do have strong collaborations with industry experts from various industries such as Telecommunication carriers, Electrical equipment manufacturers, and Infrastructure developers ensuring to have a practical applicability of what we are researched.

All SLTC research activities are coordinated by the Office for Research and Innovation Services (ORIS). ORIS provides all supports required to researchers to conduct their researches starting from applying a research grant till to make publish their research outcomes. Further, ORIS is equipped to extend its support to convert research outcomes to commercially viable products.

There are six research groups into which all the researchers in School of Engineering are contributed. The list of these research groups is mentioned below.



Centre for Telecommunication Research (CTR)

CTR is the largest research arm of SLTC. Wireless communications and Fibre optics are the two main areas investigated under this group.

The wireless communication research group is working on multiple state of art research, such as

  • Wireless power transfer (WPT)
  • Machine learning inspired wireless communication
  • Underwater visible light communications
  • Unmanned aviation vehicle (UAV) assisted communications
  • Non-orthogonal multiple acess (NOMA) technologies for 5G.

Fibre optic research group is working on

  • Non-linear phase noise compensation techniques
  • Developing dispersion measurement techniques
  • Free space optics (FSO)

Cognitive Computing

Cognitive computing which is at the heart of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been recognized by the IT industry as a natural evolution in the computer science world riding the wave towards smart machines. Recent technological breakthroughs, such as deep learning and artificial neural network, are underpinning this evolution. In this context, our research is primarily driven by the fundamental question of what makes humans and machines intelligent enabling socially intelligent and ethically aware robots and autonomous systems, enabling intelligent user interfaces, and brain sciences.

Embedded Systems and Robotics

The embedded systems and robotics research group focuses on the design and control of mechatronics based systems. The main aim of the team is to develop advanced control algorithms and to introduce optimization techniques for tactical, Industrial, and mobile robots and industrial automation system.

Sustainable Building (Civil Engineering)

The main areas of interest of this research group fall into Sustainable construction, Waste water management for enhanced sustainability, soil and rock behaviour in an engineering perspective, transportation engineering, flood analysis, and impacts of climate change and risk management.

Bio systems

Bio system research group is focused on understanding the complex physical, biological and social systems and their interactions involved in the bio systems and its related areas such as food production, processing and bioprocess technology, environmental technology, and sustainable management of agricultural technologies.

Power systems and High voltage physics

It is expected that the electrical energy production is rapidly moving towards sustainable energy sources and the distribution systems are more efficient than ever before. It is expected that more dispersed renewable generation units, such as photovoltaic (PV) systems, biomass systems and small wind turbines will be connected to the grid at the distribution level. Power systems and High voltage physics group is focussed on studying new trends and the theoretical background sustainable energy sources.

In addition, Responsive Research Seed Grants scheme has been implemented to strategically develop SLTC’s core discipline research capacity and collaboration towards more impactful research for Sri Lanka. This initiative aims to enhance the collaborations with the industry and from which, it is expected to expand opportunities for external funding for our researches. Under this scheme, maximum funding support of Rs. 1,000,000 (1Mn) is provided for each research group. For these researches, local and/or international collaborators are encouraged to include. Also, it is promoted to get involve junior faculty staff, research assistants, graduate students and undergraduate students of SLTC for these researches aiming to enhance and expand their research potentials to secure the future of SLTC research activities.
