Shihara Sangeeth Wepitiyage Bachelor of Engineering with Honours Mechatronics

It was a dream from my childhood to build my future in Engineering filed and be a professional Engineer. I had personal experiences due to the direct involvement In engineering activities with my father during my school studies.I got to know about GISM Campus in Sri Lanka and Massey University in New Zealand from my cousin, who studied at GISM during that time and graduated from Massey University in the field of Mechatronics. I count it a blessing that I was able to enroll at the GISM Campus for Mechatronics engineering with the intention of completing my higher education at Massey University. I successfully completed the first two years of my studies at GISM campus, and in February 2023,
with the full support from GISM I transferred to New Zealand and now I'm studying 3rd year of my degree programme.
