Dr. I.S.K. Wijayawardane graduated from the University of Moratuwa with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering first class degree. He obtained his Master of Science in Civil Engineering at the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Moratuwa. Thereafter he worked as a Civil Engineer in the Colombo Port Expansion Project and in 2012 he was awarded Japanese MEXT Scholarship and entered to the Saitama University, Japan for his Doctor of Philosophy studies. His outstanding research works on Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite beams have been published in international journal papers and international conference publications. In 2016, Dr. Wijayawardane was offered a postdoctoral research grant for his excellent research potential by the Saitama University. He joined the newly established Faculty of Engineering in University of Sri Jayewardenepura as a Senior Lecturer in 2018.

Currently Dr. Wijayawardane is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering in the Open University of Sri Lanka.
