1st & 2nd Years @ GISM
3rd & 4th Years @ Edinburgh Napier University, UK.

Mechatronics engineering two year pathway program enables students to complete the first two years at GISM Campus and transfer to the third year of the BEng.(Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering degree of the Edinburgh Napier University (ENU), UK. Upon completion of the first year and second year, students will get the Diploma and Higher Diploma in Engineering respectively.

Through GISM Pathway programmes, students can save up to LKR. 7.2 million by studying the first two years in Sri Lanka. Students will be guided by a well qualified and experiences panel of lecturers consisting of engineers in the relevant disciplines and other professionals directly relevant to the chosen stream. Most of the lecturers are PhD or MSc qualified with years of teaching experiences both in Sri Lanka and abroad.


Higher Diploma in Engineering – first two years at GISM Campus, Sri Lanka.

Upon successful completion of Higher Diploma in Engineering, students can directly enter to the 3rd year of Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) in Mechatronics Engineering – BEng.(Hons) – at Edinburgh Napier University, UK.
