PIBT offers the B.Sc. (Hons) in Computing from the prestigious University of Greenwich - a State University in UK, which has a proud history since 1890. On November 9, the Sunday Times interviewed the Director of PIBT, Mr. Kapila Ransinghe.
The Advanced Technology Centre (ATC) of PIBT is undoubtedly one of its kind offering training on Professional Certifications, Industry Oriented Practices and Technology Workshops, all under one roof. "The aim of ATC is to convert IT graduates into software engineers; hence current graduates enter the workplace with more theoretical knowledge than practical", Mr.Ranasinghe stressed. "ATC is open to undergraduates of PIBT and other universities, but welcomes graduates and non-graduates to enhance their technical expertise."
Among the certification courses are a range of Sun Certified and Microsoft Certified courses. ATC is the only facility in the country that offers the Web 3.0 Webmaster programme, which specializes on rapid web application development and advertising, designed for entrepreneurs who wish to reap the business gains of the World Wide Web. Also, it is the only provider of the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect (SCEA) training programme in Sri Lanka, which is considered to be the highest Java certification in the world.
Another ATC innovation "The Ultimate JavaEE" is designed to familiarize graduates with the industry environment, technology and tools, which create highly dynamic, technically sound individuals with a high level of employability. Easy access, reasonable cost, and instalment based payments are among the benefits that ATC offers its students. The lecture panel of PIBT ATC is one of the best in the island, consisting of senior IT professionals from the best companies in SL.
These industry experts provide hands-on practice to students of all levels, carefully customizing the methods of knowledge delivery to suit the audience. Through these industry experts, students obtain up to date knowledge and gain exposure to the latest trends and technologies.
"When the IT graduates enter the industry after being trained at the ATC, the companies can absorb their expertise for projects right away. Therefore, companies can save time and money which would be spent on providing training and development for their employees", Mr. Ranasinghe highlighted.
