Student Excels at ICIET-2021 Conference

Mr. Naveen Sanjula, a recent graduate from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Sri Jayewardenepura, has won the 2nd place under the category of “Best Undergraduate Poster Presentation” in the International Conference on Innovation and Emerging Technologies (ICIET 2021) organized by the Faculty of Technology, University of Sri Jayewardenepura.

Mr. Naveen Sanjula and his colleagues (Mr. Nishan Auranga & Mr. Sudesh Wickramasingha) had conducted research on the Sri Lankan mud brick industry and had identified the lack of properly engineered machinery in the field. Therefore, the team was determined to design a machine which is suitable to the Sri Lankan mud brick industry, as part of their third year design project.

In the first iteration of the project the team was able to design the power transmission system of the machine, select the required components and identify the research goals that need to be achieved to check the feasibility of the machine.
