Nebula Institute of Technology, evolving from SLT Training Centre, enhances tech education and fosters innovation in a transformative educational shift.

Recognised for offering world-class educational solutions in building Sri Lanka’s knowledge economy, the SLT Training Centre (SLTTC), the education arm of SLT-MOBITEL, has transformed into the ‘SLT-MOBITEL Nebula Institute of Technology’, providing students with a greater competitive edge in becoming future-ready IT and engineering professionals while bolstering the country’s training and educational sector.

The unveiling of the new brand resonates with the theme ‘where stars are born’, providing students with unparalleled opportunities to develop technology and design solutions that tackle global engineering challenges. The launch was held recently, with CEO SLT Janaka Abeysinghe and SLT-MOBITEL senior management also in attendance, together with lecturers, students, and invitees.

For over 20 years, the SLTTC has proven its strength in the higher education sector of the country by opening doors for students to gain knowledge in the main study streams such as engineering, digital technologies, and vocational education and providing a platform to pursue NVQ technician certificates.

Today, the SLT-MOBITEL Nebula Institute continues this legacy, strengthening the partnerships previously forged with world-class qualifying bodies, including international universities, the University of Hertfordshire, UK, Pearson (UK), and local institutes such as the Tertiary Vocational Education Centre (TVEC).

SLT-MOBITEL Nebula Institute of Technology will enable high-quality training courses that go beyond theoretical knowledge, imparting vital practical skills through real-life experiences in the field of ICT. The Nebula Institute offers three convenient locations: Welisara, Moratuwa, and Kandy.

Among the highly recognized degree and diploma programs offered by the Nebula Institute are the internationally acclaimed Bachelor of Engineering Degree programs in collaboration with the University of Hertfordshire, UK, and the Pearson BTEC Level 05 HND.

Importantly, SLT-MOBITEL Nebula Institute offers a B.Eng. (Hons) in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, a B.Eng. (Hons) in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, and a B.Sc. (Hons) in Data Science in affiliation with the University of Hertfordshire, UK.  

Additionally, Nebula is an ‘A’ grade centre for conducting the Pearson BTEC Level 5 HNDs. The Pearson BTEC Level 05 HND in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, SLT-MOBITEL Nebula Institute of Technology, is the one and only private institute offering NVQ Level 06 equivalent qualification for Pearson BTEC Level 05 HND in Electrical & Electronic Engineering. Further students can fast track their careers after O/L’s by enrolling in the Pearson BTEC International Level 03 Foundation Diploma in Engineering and direct pathway to the University of Hertfordshire UK program or direct entry to the HND in the BTEC Level 05 Electrical & Electronic Engineering Programme.


The Pearson BTEC Level 05 HND in Digital Technology programme offers five (05) special pathways for students to transform their careers. These include cyber security, software development and programming, data analytics, and cloud networking.

Upon the completion of these pre-degree diploma and degree programme courses, students will receive training opportunities in addition to a well-designed six-month in-plant training program at SLT-MOBITEL.  

Students who lack prior knowledge in IT can follow the Certificate in Information Technology (CAIT) for two and a half months, advance into the above Pearson BTEC Level 05 HND in Digital Technology, and even progress towards a degree qualification.

SLT-MOBITEL Nebula Institute is also a TVEC-approved centre, i.e., an accredited centre, for NVQ Level 4 Telecommunication Technicians. In addition, Nebula offers the NVQ Level 4 qualification for the telecommunications sector through the ‘Recognition and Prior Learning’ (RPL) pathway.  

Recently, the Nebula Institute received prestigious dual honours at the Pearson BTEC Higher Education Forum 2023. The Institute was awarded impressive titles, namely ‘Emerging Centre of the Year 2022’ and the ‘Top Performing Centre 2022—Bronze Award'.

Furthermore, SLT-MOBITEL Nebula Institute works in partnership with the EC Council as an accredited training centre, and the RedHat Academy, and the Sri Lanka Association for Software and Services Companies (SLASCOM).

For enrolled students, job training is provided in-house, with quality education assured under the patronage of a talented lecture panel. Offering an engaging educational environment, students have access to comfortable amenities, including fully equipped laboratories with advanced equipment, a vast library, canteen, sports, and recreational facilities, with secure hostel premises onsite for student accommodation.
