Today, in Sri Lanka, the demand for qualified Software Engineers and IT (Information Technology) personal in both the private and the public sector organizations has highly been increased. In order to cater this demand few of Sri Lankan Universities and other public and private sector institutions provide a variety of Software Engineering Courses. However, the supply of qualified IT personal related to the job market falls much shorter than the numbers required.
As such, the External Degree Programmes and Extension Services Unit of Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka has being conducted a programme in Software Engineering for past 10 years which provides a diploma with comprehensive knowledge in Systems Analysis & Design, Database Management, and Computer Programming to enable personnel to fit in the intermediate position in the field of IT.
One Year (700 Hrs. )
The main objective of this study programme is to provide a systematic Software Engineering Course with the aim of producing qualified Software Engineers and IT personnel for the Sri Lankan job market. It is intention to ensure local as well as international recognition for this programme.
