The 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 the 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. 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 participation was pretty poor.
This could be because of lack of awareness about the event, even among SLIIT students. If you want students to attend, they should have skipped the holidays. If this event was held on let’s 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.

Sukitha, team leader of the Tripwire project presenting the research paper. This guy can make a nice speech out of almost nothing.
Hosney realizing it’s not a path but a river in the GPS tracking system.
Another cool project by the networking guys. I think this was a patient monitoring system. All is all I enjoyed the event very much.
