SLIT recognises that establishing early contact with working environments is a key component of the students' education and professional development. The Industrial Training Unit was launched with the goal of industry training (internships). SLIT maintains strong connections with government authorities and private sector organisations (e.g. Pearson, Virtusa, and WSO2) and takes advantage of these relationships to set up different industrial training and placement opportunities for students.
Aside from providing students with professional prospects and hands-on experience in their relevant fields, companies, in turn, are able to approach a large number of students in-house for their employment needs. Additionally, they can also harness and cultivate novel ideas for their own projects as a result.
