“Are you Ready” is a mentoring programme designed and implemented to improve the soft skills of engineering undergraduates in local universities. We at AEL, a leading construction company in the sector, have recognized that while graduates from state universities possess expertise in their respective fields, they lack the soft skills required to carry out daily tasks in a corporate environment. To address this issue, we initiated a coaching/mentoring programme for the third-year undergraduates from the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the University of Moratuwa. This programme has been continued consecutively for the last three years and equips more than 125 undergraduates per year with the necessary soft skills to ensure their success in the corporate world. We hope to not only continue this program in the next year as well but also extend it to final year students from all oter state universities.
