Year 2007 was a great year for SLIIT as a whole. Project Groups from SLIIT performed exceptionally well in the recently held National Best Quality Software Awards and in the Techno 2007. In NBQSA three projects from SLIIT came to the final six and SLIIT won the gold and the silver awards in tertiary student category. Furthermore the gold medal winning project which represented Sri Lanka in APICTA won the gold medal there as well. In Techno 2007 a third year project won the gold award and they were representing the Data Communication Stream so it was a good all round performance.
Most of these projects were on display at the SLIIT Research Symposium 2007 which was held on 13, December at SLIIT Malabe. Other than the projects there were some stalls from recognized IT companies where students had a chance to submit their CV's. There were some great projects on display and the stalls by the IT companies provided a great opportunity for students to submit their CV's , but the crowd turn up was pretty poor. This could be because of lack of awareness about the event , even among SLIIT students. If you want students to attend something , its not a great idea to held it in the holiday period of SLIIT. If this event was held on lets say around January not only more people will attend , but it will also be a great opportunity for first year students to have a feel of IT. Some photos of the event are posted below.
