I am Sameera Chathuranga and I am 25 years old. I received my education from the S.W.R.D.Bandaranayake National College and after completing my Advanced Levels, I received training as a Cadet in the Sri Lankan Navy. After serving for over a year at the Sri Lankan Navy, I joined the Java Institute for Advanced Technology as I was not satisfied with my career.

While I was engaged in the PCJT Software Engineering Programme, I received the opportunity to take part in research activities as a Research Engineer at the Web Technology and Software Engineering Research Centre (WTRC). The primary area in which I was involved was researching how Software Engineering can be applied in the field of Medicinal Science.

During my undergraduate studies I received the valuable opportunity to participate in a Software Engineering project that was to be developed in order to prevent tuberculosis. This particular project was a joint venture of the Ministry of Health of Sri Lanka and the WTRC. Furthermore, this project was an immense step forward in the Healthcare Sector of Sri Lanka and the National Programme for Tuberculosis Control and Chest Diseases. All the medical services for the patients can be conveniently and efficiently managed via this software application. Subsequently, I joined the Java Software Engineering Company that is operated by the Java Institute for Advanced Technology and after a service of four years, I am currently holding the position of Senior Software Engineer.

I am also serving as a Research Engineer for WTRC to develop the National Health Management System of Sri Lank that is being created by the Java Institute for Advanced Technology. This particular project is set to be the largest software system in Sri Lanka and it will interlink all the hospitals (both national and private), medical centres, laboratories, and citizens of Sri Lanka. After this project is completed, the Healthcare Sector of Sri Lanka will successfully be placed alongside the Healthcare Sectors of foreign nations.

At present, I am engaged in my MSc at the Cardiff Metropolitan University of the United Kingdom. l take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to the WTRC as it has opened the doors and enabled me to successfully fulfil my desire in advanced researches in the field of Software Engineering
