The Alumni Association of the Department of Information Technology was formed in 2014. The graduates passed out from the department are eligible to be members of the Alumni Association. The office bearers are selected annually. The objectives of this association are to create, enhance and maintain a good relationship between the alumni members, the department and the corporate sector entities and to provide an opportunity for the graduates to maintain and enhance their relationships among their colleagues throughout their life time.
Firstly, I am deeply honoured to have been elected as the first President of the Alumni Association of the Department of Information Technology, University of Sri Jayewardenepura. Further, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the committee members of the Alumni Association.
We will have a number of challenges to overcome as the first elected office bearers, and I strongly believe if we stand together as a team, we can achieve these targets, opening us to endless opportunities.
As of now, we have already initiated some activities: one being, establishing a strong network among past students of the department. In addition, we plan to receive contributions and expertise on how to improve the quality of our degree programme as well as undergraduates of the department.
I warmly invite and sincerely request each and every one of you to get involved in your own way to continue serving in the Alumni Association. I would love to connect with all of you, regardless of where you may be. Please continue to visit our website for information on future alumni activities.
