Department Head's Message

As the nation’s premier and rapidly growing modern university in Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia, NSBM Green University always strives to provide the best for its undergraduates. Under the visionary leadership and guidance of NSBM Management, the Department of Software Engineering (SE) keeps its service to the students as pioneers at the Faculty of Computing (FOC). The largest student cohort of the FOC belongs to the Department of SE, and they study the disciplines of Software Engineering, and Web and Mobile Application Development. The Department of SE offers a plethora of UGC-approved Degree Programs and highly ranked foreign degrees together with Plymouth University, United Kingdom and Victoria University, Australia. The degrees’ unique feature is that undergraduates will study full-time in the first two years to gain a theoretical understanding and follow the last two years as part-time students while working in the industry to get exposed and adapt to modern technological innovations.
