For the first time in the Engineering education in Sri Lanka, an opportunity is now available to earn world class BSc. Engineering and IT degrees from a prestigious foreign university by studying in Sri Lanka.
The Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand is now offering a wide range of high standard engineering and IT degrees, partnering with Sri Lanka's first purpose built 'Green' university campus, South Asian Institute of Technology and Management (SAITM) at Malabe.
AIT, where many high performing graduates from state universities in Sri Lanka enter for their postgraduate studies, are venturing out for the first time in their illustrious history of 50 years into undergraduate studies, in view of the great potential envisaged for the emerging Asian economies. It is now a well established fact that the world economy is bound to be dominated by the educated of Asia. As such, AIT, partnering with many universities and industries in the world, is engaged in a rapid expansion phase, where its presence is now fanning out to many parts of the region. With its highly qualified multi-national academic staff, very strong links with the industry and state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, this highly ranked independent institute is bound to be Asia's most sought after university in the very near future.
AIT offers the following degree programmes in which Sri Lankan students can now complete the first phase at SAITM in Sri Lanka and then proceed to AIT in Thailand to complete the degree.
All courses are of 4 years duration, which is the acceptable study period for any recognized BSc Engineering degree.
SAITM, with all the modern infrastructure and laboratory facilities to conduct the first phase of the programmes, is served by a highly qualified academic staff recruited from among the best in the state universities. Further, the visiting faculty comprises top level professors and senior lecturers from state as well as foreign universities.
