Lanka Nippon BizTech Institute (LNBTI) has been accredited as a degree awarding institute for its unique IT degree programme, BSc (Hons) Software Engineering. LNBTI becomes Sri Lanka’s first and only Japanese Higher Education Institute to feature a Japanese job-oriented programme, approved by the Ministry of Education (MoE).
The launching ceremony of the Ministry of Education approved the first Japanese Industry Oriented degree programme was held on the 15th September 2022 from 9.00am to 11.00am at LNBTI premises Maharagama in a grand scale. Hon Dinesh Gunawardena Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and Hon. Mizukoshi Hiheaki the Ambassador of the Japanese Embassy in Sri Lanka graced this important occasion with the presence of many representatives from government institutions, universities, leading IT corporations and private & public schools.
Selecting the right institute for a student’s future goes beyond simple books and curriculum, and instead must be looked at as a training ground that pushes them to be drivers of change for a better tomorrow. 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. The same synergies have helped form strong relationships with reputed organizations in Japan and locally, many with Japanese origin. This in turn has created a network to supplement the various industrial internships offered in LNBTI’s degree programs; most of which inevitably retain graduates as part of their permanent cadre. LNBTI is the first to introduce this type of “study in Sri Lanka and work in Japan as an IT professional” model in Sri Lanka.
