Volume 5, Number 2, June-2012
Due to the massive demand from the ICT industry for high quality human resources the University of Colombo School of Computing (UCSC) started its external degree program in 2000; the Bachelor of Information Technology, popularly known as BIT. So far this program has produced over 1000 graduates and most of them have been absorbed by the ICT industry, both locally and internationally. BIT is considered as a successful external degree program and the secret behind the success may be the access to lessons on-line.
