University of Moratuwa has once again proved that it is one of the best universities in the world by winning the highly competitive ‘Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)’ called ‘Google Summer of Code’, which tests the creativity, talents, proven abilities and performance of students, the Ministry of Higher Education said yesterday.
The annual competition was inaugurated in 2005. In the performances during the last four years the University of Moratuwa was ranked first among 1,193 universities, surpassing even the University of Toronto, Canada.
This was possible due to the outstanding achievements of undergraduates and post graduate students, the Ministry said.
