Also, we equip our graduates with all the necessary skills they’d need to survive and thrive in the subsequent world of work after graduation.

The Faculty has fully pledged strong research backdrop and community & outreach programmes that will contribute to producing capable and prolific graduates for the development of the aforementioned sectors in Sri Lanka.
