Message by the Vice Chancellor


The Faculty of Technology is yet another milestone in the proud history of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura. As always, it is our passion to introduce new and innovative pathways to the Sri Lankan academic field. We believe in moving along with changing times and trends to groom future generations that are efficient, professional and who are equipped with cutting-edge thinking. It is the reason why we are in constant search of ways to upgrade the university’s course line-up.

The field of technological studies has been a long standing need in our country’s education system. There were very few opportunities available in this line of study for prospective students. When the government of Sri Lanka decided to introduce a technology stream in 2015 for G.C.E. Advanced Level examinations, it became necessary for the higher education system to create new routes for these students accordingly. The University of Sri Jayewardenepura stepped forward to cater to this growing need by establishing the Faculty of Technology and opening its doors for technology students. Although it is a difficult task to organize a new faculty at the exact rapidity the situation demanded, we have been able to realize this dream and welcome the first in-take this year. The Faculty of Technology is endowed with a fully operational team to begin working with our new students.

We understand the present competitiveness in the domain of technology professionals. Therefore we have designed several courses to help students to obtain the best possible skills and knowledge to prepare themselves for such competitiveness. In time they will contribute to the country’s development in numerous valuable ways and they will proudly call themselves an essential human resource in Sri Lanka’s way forward.

I welcome you to the University of Sri Jayewardenepura and wish you all the best.

Prof. Sampath Amaratunge
