Revised course structure and curriculum for B.Sc. Honours in Information Technology Degree Programme, Department of Industrial Management, Faculty of Science

The Government of Sri Lanka has targeted average economic growth of at least 8% over the next 8 to 10 years. One of the sectors that could easily contribute towards this ambitious growth plan is the local IT industry. The EDB Sri Lanka, in its strategic plan 2011-2015, has classified ICT as a large export sector with high potential of growth and expects US$ 1000 Million by year 2015. However, the Information and Communication Technology Agency (ICTA) through its "National ICT workforce surveys" has found that lack of ICT workforce hinder the growth of the sector. An immediate corrective action is required to increase the skilled ICT workforce to the predicted level to achieve the desired targets. Therefore, as a national university that has been in the forefront of developing and offering courses in information and communication technology, in Sri Lanka, the time is now opportune for us to enhance our current offering by providing the students to major in the information technology area.
