HND IN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT (1ST BATCH)
BSC IN QUANTITY SURVEYING (UNIVERSITY OF SALFORD) (1ST BATCH))

I was in the 1st batch of HND in QS, HND in CM and also in the BSc. And also I was the CSCT Student council president in year 2011/2012. Working as a construction professional was one of my dreams which I had since I completed my A/Ls.
I had no hesitation in selecting CSCT to complete my education because all the big names in the Sri Lankan construction industry were in the lecturer panel and in the management. The impressive facilities and welcoming staff at the CSCT also influenced my decision.
As the president of the student council I was involved in organizing many social activities. With the experience I had I can say ‘CSCT is not merely an institute which provides knowledge but also a place where you can meet new friends and get involved in many social activities which will make your stay at CSCT a memorable one.’
I am now in my BSc final year and I had the opportunity of working in Qatar for 3 months for a well reputed company during my training period. I believe it has provided me with better career prospects, as employers value this kind of experience and it makes you stand out from the crowd.
Not like any other institute, CSCT appreciates the achievements of the students in many ways, so that the students get motivated to work harder. And also the lecturers give individual attention for the students because the number of students in a batch is limited. Selecting CSCT to complete my higher education in construction was one of the best decisions I took in my life.
All in all, I believe the opportunities provided at CSCT have given me the skills and confidence to thrive as an individual in the industry and also the experience to stand out from the crowd!
