History of Faculty of Agriculture

The Eastern University, Sri Lanka is one of the 15 state universities in the country. It was established as a University College with Faculties of Agriculture and Science in 1981 and was conferred independent status as Eastern University, Sri Lanka in 1986. The University is located in the village of Vantharumoolai, Chenkalady, which is on the Batticaloa – Pollanaruwa main road, about 18Km North of Batticaloa town. The region is well endowed with various natural resources and in pre-colonial period was popularly known as the “Granary of the Island”. The natural resources include agricultural lands, an annual rainfall ranging between 1500 and 2000mm, surface and underground water for irrigation, dense as well as more open natural forests, range land, and a large population of cattle and buffaloes.

The Faculty of Agriculture, EUSL recognizes the importance of the newly introduced reforms in University Education and a new Corporate Plan is being prepared in order to incorporate several recommendations made by the National Policy for University Education into the present system. The Faculty taking note of the increasing ranks of unemployed graduates, and the need for better trained agriculture graduates, to achieve the regional and national goals, intends to introduce the following changes.

  1. The introduction of a new academic programme: Semester Based Credit Unit System.
  2. Cross disciplines and Cross Faculty choice of Modules.
  3. Skill development activities.
  4. Multiple entry points into degree programmes and close interaction with State and Private Sector institutions.
  5. To continue English as the Medium of Instruction.
  6. Carrier Guidance of Students.

The Faculty shall follow a Semester Based Credit Unit System from the academic year 1999/2000. This will work on a Modular System of Credits. This new Curricula and Syllabi has been developed to suit the Semester System and to expand skill development activities and experiential learning.

The degree programme is to offer a range of modules both compulsory an optional and permit the selection of modules on year by year basis. A student will be able to build the degree around the core modules along with optional modules available in the Faculty and in other Faculties. This will allow maximum flexibility and the avoidance of mass production of ‘Clones’. The students will be able to select modules that would provide better career opportunities.

The Faculty identifies the need for better trained agriculture graduates with “do-how” rather than “know-how” training. In view of this; arrangements are being made to provide opportunities for the students to learn by experience in close interaction with Farming Communities, Research Institutes and Private Sector Organizations. A link, with the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, India for inviting consultants, upgrading Junior Academic Staff, Staff and student exchange and collaborative research programmes have been established. Action is being taken to develop research link with other Universities, Tea Research Institute, Rubber Research Institute and Coconut Research Institute.

It becomes very important for the Faculty to increase its student number. Therefore the degree programme will allow for multiple entries, over and above the Current Single Entry Point through the Advanced Level Examination. The Faculty, admits students with 3 or 4 defined passes in G.C.E.A/L and with five years field experience in the Agricultural Sector into the Internal degree programme. It is also planning to admit students on merit from a Diploma Course in Agriculture conducted by the Faculty. All possible efforts are being taken to make the Faculty Multi-Ethinic and Multi-Cultural.

Considering the importance of English for higher learning and job opportunities English will continue to be the Medium of Instruction. It is envisaged to organize a career guidance programme for the students to select suitable modules in view of job opportunities, and to assist them in seeking jobs and preparing and presenting themselves to private organizations for employment.

The Faculty also invites visiting staff from Universities and institutions in Sri Lanka and abroad to conduct special lectures. The staff of the Faculty has excelled in research as well as in Breeding of improved Crop varieties such as Chillies, Okra and brinjal, suitable to the region. Research efforts of staff are geared towards both academic interests and solving farmers field problems.

Each student is expected to undertake research on a selected topic, accepted by the department/Division of study concerned, either at the University or in a recognized research institution, for a period of about 4-6 months and submit a dissertation and present a seminar on the research carried out by him/her as partial fulfilment of requirements for the award of degree. Students are encouraged to work in any recognized state or private sector institution during vacations to earn some work experience and broaden practical knowledge in their field of study.

The Faculty has established a Centre for Sustainable Agriculture and Resource Management (CENSARM).
The Faculty has well established Crop and Livestock farms, about 15 acres in extent for teaching purposes and for the issue of seed and planting materials and breeding stock of farm animals to the public. Arrangements are being made to expand these activities in another 50 acres at Kiran, Batticaloa. Equipment and laboratory facilities for teaching and research are available in each Department of study.

Eastern University, Sri Lanka

The Eastern University, Sri Lanka was established on the 1st October 1986 by a University Order dated 26th September 1986 issued under Section 2 of the Universities Act No: 16 of 1978. The University was preceded by the Batticaloa University College established on the 1st August 1981 to fulfill the long felt need for the development of the Higher Educational Institution in the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka. The Batticaloa University College began with two Faculties: The faculty of Agriculture and the Faculty of Science and two new Faculties, the Faculty of Commerce and Management and the Faculty of Cultural Studies were established in 1988. In 2005, the Faculty of Health Care Sciences was established in the University and located in Batticaloa town. A campus of the Eastern University functions at Trincomalee with the Faculties of Applied Sciences and Communication and Business Studies. The Swami Vipulananda College of Music and Dance (SVCMD) was established in 1981 and was subsequently handed over to the Eastern University in 2001.

Faculty of Agriculture

The Faculty of Agriculture is one of the four faculties of the university. Establishment of the Faculty of Agriculture in the EUSL was a response to the long felt need for development of these three districts with respect to higher education. The faculty was also expected to serve as a catalyst for the agricultural and economic development of the region. The agricultural education offered, and the agricultural research pursued by the university, cater to the special needs of the region.

The Faculty of Agriculture, EUSL has well established six Departments with Crop and Livestock farms, about 15 acres in extent for teaching purposes and for the issue of seed and planting materials and breeding stock of farm animals to the public. Equipment and laboratory facilities for teaching and research are available in each Department of study. The faculty has established a Centre for Sustainable Agriculture and Resource Management (CENSARM) in 1996. The mission of the Faculty, in line with Government policy to modernise agriculture and eradicate poverty is “to produce men and women of the highest professional standard contributing towards technology enhancement, dissemination of knowledge and skill and involvement in sustained productivity in the Agricultural sector of Sri Lanka”.

Faculty of Arts & Culture

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. – Malcolm X

I am very pleased to say this message on behalf of the Faculty of Arts and Culture of the Eastern University, Sri Lanka in the capacity of the Dean.

The Faculty of Arts & Culture of the Eastern University, Sri Lanka was one of the first faculties of the University, established in 1986, and at present sixteen subjects are being offered under 11 Departments and two Disciplines.

The aim of the Faculty is to produce scholars who shall contribute good first for her/his fellow human who is near her/him, then to make the nation and the globe as whole a good, healthy, peaceful, and productive one.  From a certificate course to a Doctor of Philosophy Degree this aim becomes the final one. By giving love and humanity to the mankind would only bring a “good citizen,” as Martin Luther King Jr. said “An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

The thirty year civil war had changes the people of the region very much, mainly the region where the Eastern University, Sri Lanka situated.  This directly links the community where its shape has been damaged by many means. Thus, the role of the academia comes in to re-shape the community a good shaped one.  My fellow academics do it with all their efforts and make its their prime concern, though it is not a small task, but they do it to their maximum. Hence the students populous. 

Finally, education must re-shape a man into a human.  This ultimate motto that is engraved in each and every one who is admitted into the Faculty, whether a staff or a students, and the Faculty will lead to make this motto a true one.

Prof. J. Kennedy,
Dean/Faculty of Arts & Culture

These curriculum vitaes will be used by the Coordinator to help the students in finding placements in organizations. Once, such placements are found out by the Faculty, open interviews will be organized according to the preference of relevant organizations.


Supervision of the Internship

The entire supervision process will be conducted by Internship Coordinator and Supervisor of the respective companies.

Company Supervisor

The training will be supervised by a supervisor from the organization to which the students are assigned. Depending on the situation, probably the supervisor will be the immediate supervisor of the trainee in the training organization. The supervisor will continuously assess the performance of the interns while the training is going on. A Training Record Book will be issued for each student and the supervisor will supervise it by recording progress of the training fortnightly. It is the responsibility of the students to submit the record book to the supervisor and get it duly recorded by him/her.


Training areas

The emphasis during this practical training period is to provide students with hand on experience in the areas of Marketing Management, Human Resource Management, Accounting and Finance and Enterprise development. Training will be provided in the suitable public or private sector.

Faculty of Health Care Sciences

Sri Lanka is a nation which boasts remarkable achievements in health-care statistics in the region. The efficient organisation of the health system in the country as well as the dedicated service of health-care staff at all levels could be identified as the main contributory factors towards these achievements. However until recently only the profession of doctors was considered worthy of a degree from a university. This feature is quite contrast to the developed world and other developing countries where almost all health-care professions have recognised degrees. The uniqueness of each field has to be recognized and respected in order to achieve high standards.

Fortunately in the recent years medical schools in many state universities in Sri Lanka have recognised this defect and have started offering degree programmes in fields of health-care like nursing, rehabilitation, medical laboratory, pharmacy etc. along with medicine.

The Faculty of Health-care Sciences, Eastern University was also conceived with this broad outlook in mind. As the delivery of health-care involves many professions, it is only proper for the Faculty to offer degrees in many if not all the related health fields under one roof.

At present the FHCS offers degree programmes in MBBS and BSc (Nursing), internal and external. The organisational structure and curricula of the programmes have been designed to match contemporary global trends of Outcome Based Education. Problem Based Learning (PBL), Small Group Discussion (SGD), Tutorials etc. are examples of teaching learning techniques followed here. Early clinical exposure and abundant clinical experiences gained from the Teaching Hospital Batticaloa during the undergraduate period are our strength. Steps are underway to start degree programmes in Pharmacy and Public Health in the near future.

In 2016 the Faculty of Health-care Sciences proudly steps into the second decade of its existence. While proudly looking back at our achievements we also respectfully remember the forerunners who have strived against many odds to establish a medical school in the east; namely former chancellors, vice-chancellors, deans of faculties and the founder faculty members of the staff. Steps of establishing a medical school at the Eastern University, Sri Lanka were laid well ahead, as early as the nineteen nineties. The Gazette notification for the creation of the faculty was issued in 2005. However establishing and running the faculty since then has not been an easy task. Batticaloa being a political orphan, the faculty situated here still has many obstacles and challenges to overcome in order ensure its smooth function.

Achievements

To date the FHCS has produced about 200 medical and 75 nursing graduates all of whom are providing their professional services in the country. Many of our MBBS graduates have been selected for post graduate training in different specialities. Some of our graduates have joined as academic staff and are reading for their postgraduate research degrees.  Six and five academic staff members were able to complete their PhD degrees and masters respectively after joining the faculty. Two have obtained board certification as specialists in clinical fields after joining.

Challenges

The two major challenges we face today are lack of permanent buildings and inability to recruit medical professionals, especially consultant specialists from state service due to policies of the Ministry of Health. Recently, however the government has taken special interest in the FCHS, and measures have been taken to expedite the building processes at Pillaiyarady and Teaching Hospital, Batticaloa. Promises have been made by higher officials regarding release of doctors from the Ministry of Health to FHCS as a special concern and we wait in anticipation.

Gratitude

I wish to express my sincere gratitude towards the Deans of Medical Faculties from the Universities of Colombo, Kelaniya, Sri Jayewardenepura, Peradeniya, Jaffna, Ruhuna, Rajarata and Kotalawala Defence Academy for lending the services of their professors and senior lecturers who help us whole heartedly in teaching activities and assessments. The support rendered by the Director and the staff of Teaching Hospital Batticaloa cannot be overstated.

Potentials

As a young faculty the FHCS has many advantages. The young and energetic staff are ever ready to face new challenges and ideas. The team spirit among them too is noteworthy. We are prepared to deal with problems through dialogue. The students who register with us too are a diverse and energetic group. They are talented in many fields including sports and aesthetics and they make our lives at the FHCS interesting.

Join us!

I warmly welcome potential students in the field of Medicine and Nursing and other Health-care to choose FHCS for a better future.

I also invite qualified medical professionals all over the world to join us as academics in your chosen field.
