Going for higher studies is still not encouraged much in Sri Lankan society. Department of Computer Science and University of Moratuwa highly encourage its undergraduate for research and higher studies after graduation.
I attended 4th South Asian Workshop on Research Frontier in Computing, which was organized by School of Computing, National University of Singapore. Where we stayed at UTown residence for four days and attened lectures done by Lecturers from NUS and South Asian universities. This program highly encourage students to look for PhD opportunities at NUS and everywhere else.
There were 8 participants from Sri Lanka and total number of partipants were 44, including final year undergraduates and graduate students.The program will also reimberse our air fare. We were taken out and given us tickets to visit singapore flyer and dinner buffet. It was a great event for students to network with others.
We were given a certificate for participation and I am quite happy about the event. It was well organized and well informative. Thank you SoC for the opportunity.
