Prof. Senanayake told Daily Mirror that the university could accommodate 125 students in the first intake for the new faculty. “It is a fully equipped faculty. We will admit 75 students for the ‘Engineering Technology Degree" and the remaining 50 for the Information and Communication Technology Degree".
Next year, we will expand the activities of the faculty by introducing another degree course called ‘Biosystems Technology’,” he said. (Kelum Bandara)
