Message of the Head

Eng. G.D.F.U.Perera

I take this opportunity with great exhilaration to scribble a note to this broacher. KITI-IWM has been established to produce middle level technologists required to man the ongoing construction and handle the management of existing projects pertaining to water sector developments viz  Irrigation, domestic water supply and drainage, sanitary and hydropower. There is a huge dearth of middle level technologist in Sri Lanka as well as in other developing countries, especially South Asian Countries.

Annually about 100000 students obtain the minimum qualification in mathematic stream required to enter into a university in Sri Lanka. But only about 4000 get an opportunity to enter into a university or a technical college due to the meager available facilities. The main objective of KITI-IWM is to harness the potentials of these unfortunate talented young students for the benefit of  the country by training them as competent technologists. The successful trainees of KITI-IWM are offered diploma in Irrigation Technology   N.V.Q.level 6.

In the meantime the institute conducts many in-house training programs to update and enhance the knowledge of personal working at various departments and institutions in par with the modern innovations and findings.

Providing training facilities to foreign trainees, especially for the trainees of SARC countries too is a venture embarked by the institution.

Developing a modern research center with state of the art facilities to do research on water and water sector developments is in the pipe line of the development programme of KITI-IWM.
