Student Comments

The state of being a senior is one that everyone achieves with time. But excellence is gained only by a select few.The Institute of Java and Software Engineering is one of the best out of the oldest Information Technology institutes in Sri Lanka with no less than ten years of history. Though I did not have the chance to enter the University via A/L, IJSE has allowed me to reach the post of Senior Software Engineer and become a successful person. IJSE has been supporting its students since the very first batch to collect the required skill set and enter the top ranking software engineering companies of Sri Lanka and that,I must say,is solid proof of their excellence.

My enthusiasm and belief in regarding IJSE as the best institute to carve my future pathway was fulfilled at the very beginning of the course. I, who only had the qualification of A/L complete was able to join Rezgateway, one of the leading companies in Sri Lanka as a Software Engineer after just three courses of study and I have to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to IJSE.

It is only after we start campus to study IT or CS that we realize the gap between campus education and A/L subjects. Students who have experience in Software Engineering before entering the campus show much cleverness in their part obtaining As and A+,creating a gap between their grades and other students' grades. They are able to complete Software projects following industrial standards and get the chance to work in the leading software companies of Sri Lanka. I too had the chance to follow the CMJD program before entering Uni and it was a big advantage because it was totally based on software engineering and covered many subjects that were to be taught in campus.
