University of Moratuwa is a leading university when it comes to modeling world class engineers.
Department of Civil Engineering plays a leading role in that matter. A good engineer must not be someone with just an engineering skill.
He must be an all-rounder. With that thought in mind Civil Engineering Society of University of Moratuwa organized a cricket tournament for the undergraduates of the department of civil engineering. It was held on 31st of July 2015 from 8 am onwards in the university ground premises.
This event comes annually and the main organizing part comes from all students in the Civil Engineering department.
Two teams consisting of boys & a girls’ team from each level participated in the contest. Everyone was thrilled & excited about the tournament. Tournament was organized as a league tournament. 11 players each for a team and 5 overs each for a team. Event went on till the evening, there was much competition and finally level 4 team won the tournament.
Though there was competition and aggression it was only for the games. Everyone could see the brotherhood within the civil family. Everybody got together as one family and enjoyed the event very much.
Everyone played their part level 01 students were given the responsibility of decorating the pavilion for the event and carrying out the poster campaign which they did excellently. They were also entrusted with providing event with refreshment with soft drinks.
Level 04 students took much of the responsibility and organized the whole event.
Senior lecturer prof.Jayasinghe & prof(Mrs.) Jayasinghe were present for the presentation ceremony. Prof Jayasinghe in his brief speech at the awards ceremony gave the students so much advice.
He highly appreciated organizing such events giving everyone some opportunity to free themselves from the academic workload even for one day. Furthermore he went on to give some advice to the students, how they should forge their path to the success as an engineer & he specially talked about the current position of civil engineering in the country and what would become of it in the near future. Those thoughts were really enlightening. Then prof(Mrs.) Jayasinghe participated in giving away the awards to the winners.
Nevertheless they got an award or not everyone had a smile on their faces. After all this at the end everyone danced to the DJ music.
