In Sri Lanka there are around 30 higher educational sectors available for students. Most of these sectors require the students to carry out their research oriented projects and/or industrial based internships in their final year of studies. At that time students, lecturers and industries face following problems.
Choose an interest research topic
Select suitable place for internship
Identify potential supervisors both in the academia and industry
Access individual student contribution in a group project
Judge the requirements of stakeholders to undertake industry based research projects.
Identify potential students with the required knowledge skills
Pay higher salary to employ a skillful software professional.
More time and money to promote themselves between university students.
So we need a three way bridge system to solve these problems.
