Classroom and Syndicate Learning
At APIIT- Sri Lanka, learning is an interactive, dynamic process. The classroom and syndicate learning facilities enable students to work together throughout their course by continuously sharing new ideas and knowledge. Group activities are promoted and the students, while acquiring subject competence, also pick up important soft skills such as analytical skills and team working skills. The result of this innovative teaching/learning process is the production of work-ready professionals.
Being a leading higher education institute in Sri Lanka, APIIT invests heavily on improving its IT infrastructure; latest hardware and software are acquired to ensure that the students are exposed to cutting edge technologies. At present, there are six computer laboratories with over 200 computers, of which, the majority are Intel Pentium Core Duo and Core 2 Duo based HP PCs. All computers are networked and are connected to the Internet through high speed broadband links.
A secure wireless network based on IEEE 802.11g standard spans the entire campus enabling students to work in any location, be it a syndicate room or the recreation area, with their laptop computers and PDAs.
Students are exposed to a wide variety of platforms such as Microsoft Windows, Linux and Solaris and to latest technologies such as Visual Studio, .NET 2005, Java, Oracle 10g, MS SQL Server etc.
