In 2015, the Faculty of Computing (FOC) of General Sir John Kotelawala Defence University was established with the dawn of the Southern Campus of KDU at Sooriyawewa. This is the first ever Computing Faculty in the Sri Lankan State University System dedicated to offer the widest spectrum of computing degrees under one umbrella of Computing, and all the computing degrees offered by FOC have been benchmarked with ACM/IEEE international standards.
FOC comprises four departments catering for teaching and research in theoretical foundations of the field of computing, engineering of computer hardware and software, mathematical and statistical requirements of computing, and technological and social aspects of computing. FOC strives to build students’ enthusiasm, intellectual capacity, and active involvement in research from the day one of their undergraduate studies. FOC at KDU is the only Computing Faculty in the State University System that offers the widest spectrum of Computing Degrees for students of all streams of G.C.E (A/L) except Technology Stream.
