SLIATE lacks lecturers for engineering courses

The Sri Lanka Institute of Advanced Technological Education (SLIATE) managed by the Higher Education Ministry, is currently lacking lecturers for their Higher National Diploma in Engineering (HNDE) course.

There should be at least 73 lectures, but at present only 21 lecturers are available within the institute.

The SLIATE management is allegedly indifferent towards the academic needs of students and over 1,000 students undergo HNDE courses at the institute.

A number of irregularities in recruiting lecturers to SLIATE too, has been reported.

The institute was established about 31 years ago, but it is not properly administered to meet the academic requirements of its students, said D. M. Susil Jayapala, a senior Secretary of the SLIATE Students’ Welfare Association, speaking at a meeting of SLIATE students’ parents held at the Bingiriya Youth Training Centre in Kurunegala, yesterday.

He also requested the ministers concerned to look into the grievances of students as early as possible.
