Progressive Academy, a leading overseas education consultancy firm announced that six students from SLIIT recently transferred to Southeast Missouri State University (SEMO) to complete their degrees in Telecommunication and Networking, Computer Science and Information Systems. This also included the first student transfer from SLIIT to SEMO for a degree in Electrical Engineering and Control Systems which currently has become a robust and thriving industry with great potential worldwide.
The students, who completed the first two years of their degree at SLIIT, were awarded scholarships worth US$ 3,000 from SEMO to complete the final two years of study at SEMO on the basis that a GPA of 2.5 or above is maintained.
Three students from the first batch of eight who were transferred to SEMO previously have achieved high grades during their first semester at SEMO and were qualified for the Dean's List which require a GPA of 3.5 and above. Prof. Sam Karunarathne, Chairman of SLIIT stated at a farewell organized for the second batch of students that he and his staff were delighted to hear the excellent performance of their first transfer batch and advised the second batch of students to ensure that they maintained the same excellent performance.
