Welcome to the official
Web-page of the Faculty of Technology.
The Faculty of Technology was officially established under the
gazette notification issued on 26.04.2016 with four Departments,
namely, Engineering Technology, Information and Communication
Technology, Biosystems Technology and Multidisciplinary Studies.
The premises for the Faculty is located at Karagoda Uyangoda,
Kamburupitiya, close to the Faculty of Agriculture. The first
phase of the new building and student hostels are currently under
construction and they are expected to be completed by end of 2017.
Until then the classes will be conducted at the premises of Faculty
of Science, Wellamadama. The Faculty offers two degree programmes
for the first batch of students entering in 2016, namely, Bachelor
of Engineering Technology (BET) focusing on Electromechanical
Technology and Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology
(BICT) focusing on Application Development. BET and BICT degree
programmes have been constructed to satisfy the accreditation
guidelines of Sydney Accord as well as Institute of Engineers,
Sri Lanka (IESL) and Computer Society of Sri Lanka (CSSL), respectively.
The Faculty plans to produce internationally accredited Technologists.
The Department of Multidisciplinary Studies will offer additional
Complementary Subjects, which are required for carrier development
as well as for the accreditation. The Bachelor of Biosystems Technology,
expected to be offered from the second batch of students entering
in 2017, is in preparation.
With great pleasure, I welcome the first batch of students to
the Faculty of Technology.
