Business Systems Engineering  (BSE)

Business systems engineering is a detailed approach of identifying and implementing the business processes, tasks, and transactions that are required to successfully operate a business.  To compete in the global market, it is important that our organizations reengineer their processes with world class management best practices enabled by the use of Information Technology in order to exploit business opportunities. Therefore, having personnel with the knowledge and skills to integrate technology into business processes in the needed functional areas of business would be crucial if Sri Lanka is to achieve the stated objective of becoming an industrialized nation and the Wonder of Asia. The major is built upon the foundations of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) with a blend of the new field of Business Process Management (BPM).The programme will develop students with potential for creativity and innovative thinking into persons who will become business process engineers and developers of business systems.

Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM)

The economic expansion in China, South Korea, Vietnam and India has led to substantial growth by making use of integrated policies for development in selected thrust areas of the economy.  Given its strategic location, Sri Lanka is well position as a regional hub to leverage on increased trade and knowledge transfer. Therefore, there is a need for trained personnel to be made available in Supply Chain Management together with information technology. The curriculum of this programme is based on this premise of Information Technology enabled application of world class best practices for the management of supply chain operations. Hence the programme has as its objective the delivery of professional knowledge and skills in Business Process Management customised to applications in the field of Operations and Supply Chain Management.The vision of the Government to become a regional hub in world trade and particularly in the South Asian region,  has seen substantial investment over the last five years  in the development of sea ports, air ports  and transportation network of the country.  In order to exploit the potential of these investments the country has to now invest on developing the quality and relevance of its education system.

Information Technology (IT)

The Government of Sri Lanka has targeted average economic growth of at least 8% over the next 8 to 10 years. One of the sectors that could easily contribute towards this ambitious growth plan is the local IT industry. The EDB Sri Lanka, in its strategic plan 2011-2015, has classified ICT as a large export sector with high potential of growth and expects US$ 1000 Million by year 2015. However, the Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) through its "National ICT workforce surveys" has found that lack of ICT workforce hinder the growth of the sector. An immediate corrective action is required to increase the skilled ICT workforce to the predicted level to achieve the desired targets. Therefore, as a national university that has been in the forefront of developing and offering courses in information and communication technology, in Sri Lanka, the time is now opportune for us to enhance our current offering by providing the students to major in the information technology area.

Information Systems(IS)

Almost all companies across different sectors have embraced information technology in order to increase organisational efficiency, and as a tool to exploit market opportunities viz-a-viz competition. Many companies have found that their investment in hardware, software and liveware is a considerable investment, even when they compare their investments to other types of assets. Therefore, the need to manage IT resources, as a substantive asset, is essential to ensure the full potential of the investment is realised. Further, as information technology has become entwined in the overall strategy of the organization’s business process, the impact of failure of IT systems on the viability and sustainability of the business is enormous. Therefore, having suitably trained personnel to manage these systems and processes would be essential for the development and competitiveness of organizations.
