Be an Industry-Ready, IT Graduate ; Registration for 17th Intake of BIT, Moratuwa University Open Now

The prestigious University of Moratuwa has commenced registering students for the Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT) for the academic year commencing from October 2019. It is a three year, 100 credit degree with six semesters.
The main highlight of the revised syllabus is that, students have to do three projects, one in each academic year, starting from a mini project in the first year, followed by a group project in the second year and a comprehensive, individual project in the third year. These projects will enable students to practically apply the theory they are taught from the first year.
OpenArc Campus, the education arm of the OpenArc group is an accredited partner to the University of Moratuwa to deliver this degree program.
OpenArc Chairman Daya Hettiarachchi, who counts over 30 years of experience in the ICT industry said, “We are dedicated to IT education from the inception, way back in 1991, and have produced a large number of IT Professionals over the past 27 years, not only for the parent company, OpenArc Systems Management (Pvt) which is the industry leader in Finance and Banking software, but also to the entire IT industry as a whole.”
“OpenArc Campus believes, education is ‘Developing Heads, Hands and Hearts’.
The purpose of education is not passing the examinations but producing good human beings with values and problem solving capabilities.
At OpenArc, we believe in imparting up-to-date knowledge (Developing Heads), and giving an opportunity to do hands-on practical work, related to what they learn (developing Hands). We take an extra effort to build good values in them (developing Hearts). Hence, studying at OpenArc Campus is a unique experience for IT students,” Daya Hettiarachchi said.
There are two modes of study at OpenArc Industrial Campus, weekday mode, conducted during four to five days during weekdays and weekend mode, conducted during Saturdays and Sundays.
For the weekday students, OpenArc has added several additional modules to prepare them for the industrial requirements. Those are;
Soft skills development and Morale studies
Japanese Language (to support OpenArc Systems in Japan)
Industry exposure through mini-projects
Job oriented training through internships
Hettiarachchi also said, “We take extra care in moulding these students, because finally, we need them for our own software development house. OpenArc students get the opportunity to see and get involved in the practical software development process at OpenArc, where over eighty software developers are engaged in a professional environment which is quality certified to CMMI level 3.
They are ‘Industry Ready’, when they pass out. There is a big demand for Sri Lankan software developers with Japanese language capabilities in Japan. That is why we teach our students the Japanese language. When they become skilled, we can employ them at our subsidiary in Tokyo, Japan”.
OpenArc Campus was recognised by the University of Moratuwa, as a partner organisation in 2014 and has taken seven batches of students in 2015, 2016, March 2017, September 2017, March 2018, September 2018 and March 2019.
The registration process is open for the next intake. The BIT degree at OpenArc Industrial Campus is an affordable degree that a school leaver can think of. The application closing date is August 16.
