Graduation Ceremony 2016 ; Colombo School of Construction Technology

Every year students graduating from higher educational programmes make the transition from childhood to adulthood and embark upon the next stage of their lives. On the 27th of November 2016, at Committee Room B BMICH, 75 students graduated from the Colombo School of Construction Technology (CSCT) with one of the following qualifications: Pearson’s / Edexcel BTEC Higher National Diploma (HND) in Quantity Surveying and Construction Economics, Civil Engineering or Building Services Engineering embarking on the next chapter of their lives.
CSCT is extremely proud to Partner with Pearson’s in the delivery of the BTEC HNDs programmes our students are graduating with today. The students graduating today are those who have made the smart decision to undertake a Pearson’s BTEC Level 5 qualification. This is a smart decision as many students look to pursue further academic study either immediately or sometime in the future and this qualification allows students such flexibility. The Pearson’s BTEC HND Level 5 qualification is equivalent to the 2nd Year of a UK Honours degree. By undertaking this program students have access to more than 300 Universities that recognise Pearson’s BTEC HND programmes in countries such as the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. This is important as it provides students with global mobility, which is important in today’s context.
The need for continued support is something that CSCT Management and staff values. Therefore, it was important for us to ensure that students have options even once they leave the “classroom”.
CSCT support its students in this idea by guiding them no matter what their future aspiration is – further education or a career in the construction industry. Therefore, CSCT provides support to students who do not want to pursue further education by facilitating placements and even future employment. In fact, many employers seek CSCT student’s out for employment even before they graduate which is testament to the quality of a CSCT BTEC HND Graduate.
CSCT also provides options for those students who do not wish to travel overseas for further studies through its partnership with the University of Salford.
In fact, most of our graduates today will join one of the degree programmes offered at CSCT such as the BSc (Hons) In Quantity Surveying conducted in partnership with the University of Salford or the BSc (Hons) in Construction Management offered in affiliation with Birmingham City University.
Graduation day is an exciting time not only for students but also for us here at CSCT, as it allows us to see the fruits of our labour. It provides us the opportunity to see the growth and development students have experienced being a part of a like-minded community and the hope they have for their future. As a student of CSCT, we do not look at graduation day as the end of our involvement but the beginning of an exciting future and an opportunity for us for continued engagement.
