The Information and Communication Technology has been rapidly expanding all over the world with increased ICT usage in all forms of day-to-day activities across all the sectors. This unprecedented growth in the ICT industry has resulted in a widening gap between the supply of IT professionals and the available positions in the industry leading to a significant shortage of manpower. To address this issue at the national level, the Faculty of Information Technology, the first ever faculty of this kind in the Sri Lanka state university system, was established in June 2001.
Research degree programmes leading to MPhil and PhD degrees are introduced to undertake in-depth study in various computing areas with a particular emphasis on modern trends and the need of the country. Over the last years the faculty has been conducting research degrees in the following areas.
