Dr. S. Sivasegaram, who served as Senior Professor at the University of Peradeniya, is now doing visiting lectures in the Faculty. He is teaching Thermodynamics to the students from 12th September 2014. He graduated from the University of Ceylon with BScEng with First Class honours in 1964, completed his Diploma at Imperial College and obtained his MSc with Distinction from the University of London in 1967. He proceeded to obtain his PhD from Imperial College in 1970. He is a Fellow of the IESL and of the IMechE. It is a great pleasure and a valuable opportunity for the students to learn clearly the basics of Thermodynamics. Dr. Sivasegaram’s suggestions on curriculum development and departmental organization and discussions with staff will help the Faculty to strengthen the essentials of the curriculum as well as delivery methods in the teaching-learning process.
