Cutting edge technology is a standard for all students partaking in these programs – as Northshore College features high quality, well-equipped state-ofthe- art laboratories for both classroom demonstrations and field experiments. With a large number of students enrolled in its various programs, Northshore College also happens to be one of the fastest growing non-state institutes engaged in higher education in Sri Lanka. The four year MEng programs offered at Northshore College are designed to comply with the requirements set by the Washington Accord.
