The Kotalawela Defence University, which had produced officers of the Armed Forces who succeeded in destroying the world’s deadliest terrorism, is now ready to take another step forward.
The attention of many countries was focused on the capabilities of the Sri Lankan Military with the victory achieved over the LTTE. Accordingly, foreign students sought admission to the General Sir John Kotalawela Defence University to learn lessons from the victorious troops. The university is now moulding disciplined Military Officers than ever before.
A notable feature is the proper training imparted on all fields including the meals taken by Military Officers. Degrees are being conferred in the Medical, engineering, management and technology, law and other sectors once the three-year course was successfully pursued.
