After passing the Advanced Level examination with 3 As in the Mathematics Stream my obvious choice without doubt was to pursue Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering at the University of Moratuwa. Now 7 years down the line, it has only been proven that it was the best decision I could have made.
The highly competitive environment the Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering provides, challenges the student’s ability and intelligence providing ample opportunity for academic excellence. The academic staff is co-operative, friendly and extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields. Due to the rapport the department maintains with the industry the students also get the opportunity of interacting and working with the industry, providing the much valuable hands on experience. This is something which is very valuable in a field like Engineering and would help fast track your career once you pass out.
Not only does the Department offer an excellent academic experience but there are so many co-curricular activities that students could get involved in. Sports, societies, professional organizations what not! The Department of Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering at the University of Moratuwa I would say is indeed the best choice for Electronics Engineering and Communications Engineering education in Sri Lanka, considering the opportunities that exist which surpass anything that other universities in the country could offer.
