For his part, Retired Engineer, Malima Bundara said it is important for the engineers to be competent in their work to end stigmatisation among them.
“Firstly, I sincerely advice all the engineers to do their work professionally because it will be a better way to end stigmatisation among them.
And if the engineer is not competent with his or her career, it will be bridge for them to be undermined, therefore they should be competent and acquire principles, ethics, professionalism when fulfilling their duties,” he said.
Bundara said that engineers must give enough details when asked about something that might be seen incorrectly.
