Lanka and also in overseas as well.
The courses that are conducted by the institute are computer-based

different fields for a year and it has courses from certificate level to
graduate level. All courses are conducted by qualified professionals in
the country, who are mostly university lecturers.

driven philosophy of the private sector which we have adopted means that
well recognised qualifications at reasonable cost are being offered to
the employed as well as to school leavers to obtain the knowledge as

the process of negotiating with universities to provide more new
programmes to local students.
