SAITM increases investment to Rs.200 million

The South Asian Institute of Technology and Management (SAITM) launched the undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs in Computing at the University of Buckingham (UoB) yesterday, with the participation of the head of Applied Computing, UoB Prof. Sabah Jassim and Research Fellow in Computing, UoB Dr. Harin Sellahewa.

“SAITM is the latest addition to the higher education sector in Sri Lanka which was opened a few months ago. The total investment for SAITM has increased to Rs. 700 million. We have further increased the investment by Rs.200 million for the Medical Faculty which is still under construction.

We are planning to open the Faculty of Medicine in September this year, said Chairman, South Asian Institute of Technology and Management (SAITM) Dr. Neville Fernando.

SAITM is not only for Sri Lankan students but also for all South Asian region students. We have already received a positive response from many foreign students who showed an interest to get enrolled in the campus.

We are launching many advertising campaigns to attract foreign and local students to the campus. We advertise in foreign magazines, newspapers and also in the internet and there has been a favourable response from foreign students especially in the Maldives and Singapore, Dr. Fernando said.

“At present there are several IT degree programs at SAITM and we have launched two new programs in Sri Lanka which would be a landmark in the history of higher education in the country.

This is the first time that we have launched a two-year full time BSc. Hony. degree program in a university. The course content is very much industrial relevant and the most updated IT knowledge in the world,” said the Head of the IT Department SAITM, Senior Lecturer, Chandima H. de Silva.

“Compared to the other educational institutions, SAITM offers degree programs at a very competitive price which any middle class family can afford,” De Silva said.
