“The Master of Agriculture course at RUSL provided a golden opportunity for me to expand my horizons of knowledge”

Having understood the important relationship that exists between crops and irrigation, without any confusion, I applied to the Master of Agriculture program at the Rajarata University of Sri Lanka (RUSL) and I advanced my knowledge and understanding of modern agriculture. As a Chief Irrigation Engineer, it helped me support and sustain the agriculture sector of the motherland through the specific services and use of novel technologies acquired during this course. Now, I could better understand the problems in agriculture and perform better in solving those problems with my enhanced knowledge and using my expertise in the engineering domain. During my master programme, I got an opportunity to attend the 11th international summer school on the water at the Norwegian University of Life sciences (NMBU) from 13th June – 1st July 2022 on behalf of the RUSL. This program is a part of the activities associated with several ongoing projects managed by the Water Environment, Sanitation and Health (WASH) group of NMBU, held for the eleventh consecutive year. I was among the 53 participants and became part of the Water Harmony Global Educational and Research network, which includes 82 universities from 51 countries. The Master of Agriculture course at RUSL provided a golden opportunity for me to expand my horizons of knowledge.
