SLIIT the premier degree awarding institute in Sri Lanka, joined hands with ZILLIONe, Hack Impact International, Auxenta and zMessenger (Pvt) Ltd to commence an In House Internship programme for all students studying IT at this prestigious institute.
SLIIT has almost 1000 IT students per batch and hence the industry is not able to provide that many training opportunities. Therefore the commencement of the in house internship programme, is to bridge the gap by providing these training opportunities. This industrial training component will be made mandatory for at least a period of one month for everyone.
Companies are unable to provide training opportunities due to the lack of infrastructure. Hence, SLIIT willA� take the lead in providing infrastructure facilities. The facility will replicate the working environment and be managed by each organization as an extension of their own unit.A� Each organization will prepare students for the real world, by inculcating business, communication and soft skills. Industrial training is crucial to all students. The SLIIT students studying IT will have an edge, since they will gain work experience, industry knowledge, business skills and soft skills.A� Setting up these facilities will give SLIIT students an excellent opportunity to interact and know the flavor of the industry.A� A� A�
At present, the SLIIT campus has the facility to accommodate about 10 companies. IFS, Brandix i3 and Orange have also agreed to join in this novel initiative. However, plans are being made to construct more buildings to accommodate more companies and build a community of a variety of industries within SLIIT.
