Achieving a significant milestone, SLIIT has become the first higher-education provider in Sri Lanka to receive full accreditation from Engineers Australia (EA), for the Bachelor of Engineering Honours degrees awarded by Curtin University, Australia, delivered at SLIIT in Sri Lanka. The Curtin Engineering programs conducted at SLIIT are therefore the only engineering degree programs in the country with full accreditation from EA.
A review panel from Engineers Australia, consisting of experts from different fields of engineering, have visited SLIIT in November 2016, and upon completion of a comprehensive review process, have confirmed that the Curtin University engineering degree programs offered at SLIIT meet required the accreditation standards.
Students following the Curtin degree programs at SLIIT are considered internal students of Curtin University and have same access to the e-learning resources available to students studying at the Perth Australia campus – for example the Curtin e-library, information databases, and lecture materials.
As a result of the accreditation, Curtin University engineering graduates from SLIIT can immediately apply for membership of Engineers Australia upon graduation.
Curtin ranks among the top 2 percent of universities worldwide, in the prestigious Academic Ranking of World Universities, and ranks amongst the world top 200 for engineering.
