The Department of Statistics and Computer Science of the University of Kelaniya was established in July 1999 with the objective of meeting the ever-increasing Statistics and Computer Science education needs of university students in particular, and the academic and industrial community in general. At present the Department of Statistics & Computer Science offers Statistics and Computer Science as subjects for the B.Sc.(General) Degree Programme and conducts two B.Sc.(Special) Degree programmes, one in Statistics and other in Computer Science. In addition, an MSc programme in Computer Science was launched in 2001. Qualified students could also register for the research degree MPhil in either Statistics or Computer Science.
The Department of Statistics & Computer Science recognises the need for close collaboration with the industry both in teaching and research and has links with number of industrial partners who would provide both students and staff with a window onto the industrial world and a basis for real-world projects.
The B.A. (Special) Degree Programme in Computer Studies (COST) and B.Sc.(Special) Degree Programme in Computer Studies (COST) will be commenced in academic years 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 respectively.
