what's happening in UOM?
This year (2010),the field selections of University of Moratuwa (UOM), SL, have depicted a different trend from its past consistent behavioral pattern. Even though, when considering the whole picture, it cannot be catogorised as a radical change, still it is a very significant change in view of Civil Engineering aspects. It shows that, the modern demand pattern in engineering professional market is slowly but steadily, influencing to more and more bottom levels of the engineering professional’s hierarchy. i.e engineering students.
According to the graph more than 40 students who may have qualified to study Electrical engineering had preferred to study Civil engineering as their choice. Among them nearly 12 students have a better GPA than the lowest GPA student in the Electronic Engineering. Further almost all 40 students have a better GPA than the lowest GPA student in computer science.
This trend is highly welcome to the field of civil engineering where present turbulent market is demanding more and more highly skilled, innovative thinkers to address modern civil engineering dilemmas in environmental, structural and project management issues.
