Engineers play a primary role in sustaining a nation’s international competitiveness; maintaining standard of living; ensuring a strong national security and protecting public safety, which is not visible in the country. 

According to the Executive Director for CEMMATS Group Ltd. Andrew Keili, SLIE is working relentlessly to grow from process-driven force to a resource and result-driven force. He added that information without transformation is meaningless, and that Engineers must use their profession to make tangible impact on society.

President of the Sierra Leone Institution of Engineers, Prof. Jonas Redwood-Sawyerr said SLIE has made some strides by partnering with the Faculty of Engineering at Fourah Bay College to revise the new curriculum which is geared towards enriching programmes to be more relevant to the job market which was rolled out in 2016, adding that among earlier recommendations made by SLIE was for female representation in the institution to be increased from 16% to 32% among several other recommendations.

Engineering student from Fourah Bay College, N’Delei M’Baindu Sam encouraged young women to opt for the Engineering discipline as according to her, Engineering is crucial to the success and development of any country in the 21st Century.

Even though SLIE has been in existence for almost 50 years now, taking lead in national construction projects is still minimal, despite the abundance of qualified Engineers of several years repute.
