ESOFT Metro Campus will continue to be a platinum sponsor of EDEX Expo for the fourth consecutive year for 2013. The 10th EDEX Expo will be held on 18, 19 and 20 January 2013 at BMICH Colombo and on 25 and 26 January at the Kandy City Centre respectively.

Established in 2000, ESOFT is a trusted name for high-quality ICT and business education in Sri Lanka, offering a number of diploma and undergraduate programs in computing, IT, business management, software engineering, web engineering and many more fields. ESOFT Metro Campus annually welcomes more than 20,000 students from both urban and suburban areas, through over 40 branches spread island-wide.

ESOFT Metro Campus is the premier ICT education centre in Sri Lanka established with a vision to be the best IT training partner in Southeast Asia. ESOFT takes pride in being a wholly Sri Lankan company, managed by a group of leading ICT professionals.

Dr. Dayan Rajapakse, Managing/CEO of ESOFT said, “ESOFT has participated at the EDEX exhibitions from a long time, and we are indeed happy to be the platinum sponsor for the fourth consecutive year.  We see this not only as a commercial venture on our part, but as a CSR activity as well, since EDEX is not simply an exhibition. It is much more in terms of the web portal, the magazine and the various other CSR projects that come under the EDEX name. We are very happy indeed to be associated with EDEX.”

The desire of its management to offer professional ICT education programs at affordable prices is a statement of its commitment to the nation’s youth to empower them in IT literacy.

“We have seen that EDEX attracts a completely different crowd than what the other exhibition organisers are able to, and that the customers and visitors are more focused. The timing of the exhibition is perfect in terms of being the time at which A/L results are released, and also the time at which O/L students have completed their exams and looking for higher study opportunities,” he opined.

ESOFT Metro Campus is the number one course provider in Sri Lanka for BIT external degree program of the University of Colombo and is also the only accredited course provider in Sri Lanka for the British Computer Society (BCS), now referred to as Higher Educational Qualification (HEQ), programs in Sri Lanka.

“ESOFT Metro Campus has several new HNDs in the fields of electrical and electronic engineering, civil engineering (built environment) and mechanical engineering which will lead to Bachelors’ degrees in collaboration with our university partner, Kingston University from the UK,” revealed Rajapakse.

The ultimate aim of ESOFT is to ensure customer satisfaction.  ESOFT Metro Campus is also accredited by the BCS (UK) as an accredited course provider. ESOFT Metro Campus is also an approved centre of Edexcel International, and is the only collaborative partner of the University of Moratuwa for offering their external BIT degree.

Welcoming the sponsorship, Chairman EDEX Kamal Abeysinghe said, “ESOFT has grown in strength over the years and has provided affordable IT courses of value to youth in Colombo as well as in the outstations, enabling them to secure gainful employment. We greatly value the continuous support ESOFT has extended as a longstanding participant and sponsor.”
