The Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka (SUSL) has the unique capability of catering to the higher educational needs of the Sabaragamuwa and Uva provinces. One of the prime objectives of the University is to fulfill these needs of the community. It is a common understanding that the residents in these provinces have a sever lack of access to computer facilities and hence, less opportunities, to improve their computer skills.
It provides the opportunity to improve and develop programming & designing skills needed in a number of professional situations. The course will mainly emphasize on theory and practical aspects of the Programming, Designing and Application Developments.

Final Project (75 hours)
Each course module is evaluated through an examination. The final examination will carry 60% of the final marks. An appropriate proposition of marks not exceeding 40% will be assigned to practical, assessments, quizzes and attendance of each course module. The course module will be evaluated by the Lecturer or Instructor who conducts the module based on all above mentioned evaluations and totaled up to 100 marks.
Final Marks = (mid examination, assignments, practical) X 40% +Final Examination X 60%= 100%
ades and Grade Points
A letter grade assigned for each course module. The cut-off marks and the corresponding grade points are given below.
Marks Obtained (M) Final Grade Grade Point
85 or above A+ 4.00
80≤M<85 A 3.75
75≤M<80 A- 3.50
70≤M<75 B+ 3.25

I. All E grades should be upgraded at the first available opportunity.
II. The maximum grade given for the repeat examination shall be C.
Grade Point Average (GPA)
The final GPA of the course will be computed as follows.
n - Number of subjects
GP(i) – Grade point of ith subject
CP(i) – Credit point of ith subject
N- Number of credits assigned for the course
The candidate must obtain at least the minimum grade of C for each course module securing final GPA grater or equal 2.00.
Awards of Merits
Final grades will be calculated on the basis of the average marks of the two papers and the practical component.
