Dhanuka Nanayakkara

In my course I really enjoyed applying theoretical skills to practical engineering projects, such as developing a Live Emergency Personnel Tracking project. My team and I worked with the Metropolitan Fire Brigade to develop a system that tracked deployed personnel in real-time during emergency situations.
