Think Beyond BSc - Plan for MSc After the A/L Examination

At present the growth rate of the Information Technology and related technologies are tremendously high to meet the requirements which arise in the global IT environment. Therefore the time has come to think beyond the BSc. qualification after advanced level examination to face the challenges of the latest trends in Information Technology to stand successfully among others. 

Traditionally, academic qualifications ware acquired in a "One After Next" process and rarely a few students showed the ability to have a holistic view of their future higher education. A new trend is going on worldwide in the arena of higher education. Today many recognized universities offer Masters level academic education for technically sound IT professionals in many technological areas. Today PCJT Software Engineers are highly recognized to receive such MSc. qualifications from many high ranked universities. 
There are four major reasons why a student should select PCJT Software Engineer training program to follow immediate after A/L, 
  1. No any other degree is required to follow MSc(IT) at University of Wales Institute of Cardiff after the completion of PCJT Software Engineer Training Program.
  2. Within the first six months, candidates are trained to develop a software solution for a real business and the full function of the software should be confirmed by the customer to get full credits for the assignment.
  3. All the lectures are not only fully qualified with a academic qualifications but also with all three platforms of Oracle Certifications (Previously Sun Certifications). 
  4. Cost of the PCJT Software Engineer training program is almost half compare to the cost of any IT degree program is offered by  any affiliated institutes in Sri Lanka. 
After the advanced level examination, talented youth of Sri Lanka should plan higher education up to the level of masters degree, while acquiring sound technical skills, in order to stand among others  easily  in the competitive job market with high perks.  PCJT Software Engineering Qualification is a modern professional qualification in the field of Java Technology to achieve MSc. in the academic education hierarchy quickly and cost effectively. Fifteen PCJT Software Engineers produced by IJTS were offered MSc.(IT) by the University of Wales Institute of Cardiff (UWIC) in July 2011. The first semester of the MSc.(IT) program was exempted for them, after evaluating the technological skill and academic knowledge they imparted with. Also they will be given another opportunity to complete their final project at the university premises in UK without any additional cost. This is a true achievement of the field of Java technological education in Sri Lanka.

Be an Internationally Certified Professional Java Software Engineer In ONE Year

PCJT is the Secret to High Salaried IT Job Market

All IT job seekers, Advanced Level exam completers, undergraduates and graduates interested in the field of software development are eagerly looking forward to become a professional software engineer. Following article is about PCJT (Professional Certificate in Java Technology) a complete one year professional and practical training program. PCJT provides software analytical, designing and architecturering skills, industrial experience working with real client and software development  ability for sale for global market with entrepreneurship skills for its participants.  

Parents Expectation
At the same time their parents are also waiting until their beloved ones become professionals in this newly upcoming computer job market with high scale salaries and other benefits. The main reason for this is because they know Java IT professionals are respected by society and at the same time their monthly salaries are above the levels of same aged and experienced non professionals in all other fields. 

Three Components of Professionalism
In this phenomenon, having a clear idea about the professionalism relevant to software development is very important. Basically, a professional software engineer should have three major components. They are methodical theoretical knowledge earned with a recognized theory certification, software development skill developed through a practical training and experience gained through developing software solutions for real business entities. What are the qualifications available in Information Technology? Qualifications mainly fall into two categories; academic qualifications and professional qualifications. 

Why Universities are Focus only on Academic Education in IT Field?
Basically any university around the globe focuses mainly on academic qualifications, especially in the field of information technology.There is nothing wrong in that because universities exist for the purpose of disseminating the universal knowledge in a particular field.Ethically a university has no right to focus only on one subject in the IT field, as the majority of the IT subjects belong to private companies. For instance, a university cannot focus only on Microsoft's Visual Basic subject to produce professionals in that particular subject. University education needs to cater to all other programming subjects also, equally, to create a non biased environment for all subject content providers. Due to this situation, universities are limited to train students only for academic qualifications. Having academic qualifications alone is not sufficient to succeed or at least to survive in the IT job market.At least to get into the first job, having academic qualifications alone is not sufficient today. A Professional qualification is the solution for this situation. PCJT stands for Professional Certificate in Java Technology. 

Advantage of PCJT as  a Professional Qualification
Information Technology interested parents and students both can gain a complete benefit of knowing the advantages of PCJT professional qualification only when they have a capacity to compare PCJT qualification with academic qualifications in the field of information technology.PCJT focuses only to specialize a student for the Java subject, which is the world's most updated programming language and technology. Java is the programming language used by NASA for Mars exploration satellite and Mars Rover mission. Java is also the programming language for future mobile devices like mobile phones and PDA computers.The upcoming mCommerce market which uses mobile phones for trading will be driven based on Java Technology. 

PCJT Syllabus and Course Content
PCJT syllabus will be covered in two semesters. The syllabus contains all three major areas which are practical, theory and experience to become a real professional in the Java J2SE knowledge area.
In the first semester, the practical software development project is developed with a real business client for students to get the industry placement experience and exposure. The other major component of the first semester is the architectural design project for ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) application.
In the second semester of the PCJT programme, students are trained to sit the internationally recognized examination delivered by the Chamber of Chartered Java Professionals Greace/USA, the professional body for the Java programming language. This certification is accepted for USA Visa purposes too.

Professional Qualification First
At the end of the PCJT programme, students are specialized in J2SE area in Java technology and they become professionals in Java technology. The President of the Chamber of Chartered Java Professionals, Dr. Ishantha Siribaddana stated that specialization of a particular subject and getting professional qualifications is important not only in information technology, but for accounting, law, marketing and other fields too. He said the Java field is special because it pays very high salaries for qualified professionals.
He also stated in Sri Lanka there is a huge trend in acquiring Java based professional qualifications before acquiring any academic qualifications just after the ALs. He predicted that this trend would lead to a dramatic soft technology development in Sri Lanka in the near future.
