ESOFT Metro Campus is one of the largest and most recognised and leading higher education networks in Sri Lanka with an excellence of 20 years. A pioneer in grooming Sri Lankans to meet the demands of an increasingly globalised world and a UGC approved degree awarding institute, ESOFT is a knowledge hub where expertise, commitment, and dedication are combined to impart knowledge and ensure discipline.

The achievement of the UGC approved degree awarding institution status was its greatest achievement thus far, allowing it to expand on the services and opportunities that it offers to Sri Lankan students.

Year 2020 marks the celebration of the excellence of the ESOFT network that has been catering to the higher education requirements of Sri Lankans for over two decades. Having been established in the year 2000, which marked the dawn of a new era dominated by advancements in IT and Communication, ESOFT possessed high inspirations and humble beginnings there onwards. 

It all began with 10 students and three staff members, but following its course of excellence, ESOFT has now expanded up to 40 regional branches including five Metro Campuses located in the heart of Colombo, Kandy, Kurunegala, Gampaha and Jaffna with a broader spectrum of study areas including Computing, Business Management, Engineering, Hospitality Management, Languages, and Corporate training. 

ESOFT also takes pride in being the world’s only accredited course provider for all three levels of the BCS HEQ, and the biggest partner of the BIT program offered by the University of Colombo School of Computing. With the Platinum partnership for Pearson qualifications in Sri Lanka, ESOFT holds great pride in being one of the best education providers in Sri Lanka that caters to the educational demands of over 35,000 students annually. 

The fully air-conditioned lecture rooms are vibrantly designed with state-of-the-art technology, modern equipment, and ample space to facilitate the teaching and learning process, which greatly benefits our students, while delivering a world-class learning experience. In addition, students can experience the latest facilities under fully air-conditioned laboratories, libraries, rest &recreational activity space, canteen, and parking facility. The panel of academics includes academically and professionally experienced and qualified lecturers who are dedicated to creating a new generation of professionals to steer the future world. 

ESOFT is also one of the few higher education institutes in Sri Lanka that was successful in incorporating online teaching and learning in the face of the exceptional challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

ESOFT, in collaboration with HCL Technologies India, has now come to a resolution in providing internships and employment to graduates of ESOFT as a measure of extending the scope and taking local talents to an international level. HCL, being the third biggest IT company in India has recently commenced their operations in Sri Lanka having ESOFT as their training partner for Sri Lanka. 

Guided under the vision of ESOFT Metro Campus Founder and Chairperson Dr. Dayan Rajapakse, and the support of academic and administrative staff, ESOFT is constantly striving to be on par with world trends and standards while bonding Sri Lankan values and global developments.
