LNBTI launches first degree programme


Lanka Nippon BizTech Institute (LNBTI) launched its first degree programme yesterday (15), at KNBTI premises Maharagama in the presence of Prime Minister Dinesh Gunawardena and Japanese Ambassador Mizukoshi Hiheaki.

LNBTI is an accredited institute with a unique IT degree programme; BSc (Hons) Software Engineering. The school is Sri Lanka’s first and only Japanese Higher Education Institute to feature a Japanese job-oriented programme approved by the Ministry of Education.

The Prime Minister handed diplomas to a selected few students of the first batch who will proceed to the degree programme.

The salient feature of the new programme is that job opportunities in Japan will be available for LNBTI students. Furthermore, the IT sector investment opportunities will also be available for them.

Combining the hallmarks of Japanese culture with a carefully curated degree programme, studying at LNBTI ensures that students are equipped with the necessary skills and training to pursue rewarding career opportunities in the field of IT in Japan.

LNBTI is the only Japanese higher education institute in South Asia to offer quality IT degree programmes with an arrangement of professional and permanent employment in the Japanese IT industry. The institute’s strong relationship with professional Japanese business counterparts owes in part to the synergies between its parent companies Metatechno Inc, Japan and hSenid Group of Companies, Sri Lanka. LNBTI Chairman Kogo Michio and Prof. Ananda Kumar and other dignitaries were present during this occasion.
