The Monthly ‘Question Time’ programme conducted by Institution of Engineers of Sri Lanka (IESL) was held recently and was sponsored by Division Construction of Würth Lanka (Pvt.) Ltd.
The ‘Question Time’ programme is held every last Tuesday of the month and is attended by over 75 structural and civil engineers, academics, university students and other interested parties in the allied fields.
The popularity of the ‘Question Time’ Programme amongst the construction industry fraternity has been built up over the years since it defers from a mere lecture on a current and practical topic by involving the audience in a two-way discussion with the eminent and professional speaker of the session.
“We are pleased to have sponsored IESL Question Time Programme since Würth Lanka’s construction division has a range of state-of-the-art, high-quality products and solutions which improves the efficiency of the construction and building trade. As the sponsor of Question Time, we had the opportunity to convey to the audience how Würth products and services can add value to the construction and building industry in Sri Lanka,” said Würth Lanka (Pvt.) Ltd Manager Construction Division Vinod Sudesh.
