To me,FMST is the ideal place to study about the Marine Sciences in Sri Lanka.FMST helped me grow and excel as a student,all the while nurturing my love for the ocean, backed by some of the best academics in this field.

My journey started as a bio student. But I late found out I was more passionate about software engineering. I got selected to the FMST amidst my revelation. Though in mind I knew it was impossible to do a math-based subject as a bio student , something within these premises changed me. Now I'm a proud inventor, a software designer passionate to contribute to our country all because of the guiding light of the FMST.
