Kilinochchi premises of the University of Jaffna covers over 568 acres of land. Out of this already 250 acres is in active mode including two faculties and common facilities. Therefore the students need an efficient transport system to effectively use their time. This issue was very well recognized by the Tamil Engineering Foundation and while remembering Late Professor A. Thurairajah, it was decided by TEF to donate bicycles to the students. It is important to note that, in 1979, the proposal for this Engineering Faculty was prepared by late Professor A Thurairajah. Furthermore,most of the time, he was travelling by bicycle when he was serving as Vice Chancellor of the University of Jaffna, a decade ago.

The faculty administration has also agreed for the Engineering Student Union to handle the distribution of these bicycles through a proper procedure. As a result, the ESU prepared a constitution for this donation and obtained the approval of the Faculty administration. Finally the ESU distributed to the students by inviting the staff on 8th December 2015. Professor N. Ravichandran already visited the Faculty to teach several subjects, he was also invited and was requested to deliver a talk about Late Professor A. Thurairajahat this event. The Faculty and the Students thank the TEF for their donation to make the student’s life efficient and effective, in the Kilinochchi premises of the University of Jaffna.
