Chathrie Wimalasooriya - 2007 / 2008 batch

Lecturer in Information Systems, Sabaragamuwa University of Sri Lanka

I had the golden time of my life at the Department of Computing and Information Systems. I enjoyed so many things during my undergraduate journey as one of the pioneers of the Department of Computing and Information Systems. The support and guidance given by the Department throughout four years are indescribable. CIS fortified me to crack innovative things, made the most of the opportunities I get given and never been anxious to explore the areas of computing I previously ignored. As the Department maintains a tight relationship with IT industries, I started my career as a Software Engineer-Technology at Virtusa. After having nearly two years of industrial experience, I made the most wonderful decision of joining the Department as an academic staff member. Since then, my life has been running in parallel to serving this esteemed department.  At this point, I would be thankful to the Department of Computing and Information Systems and also encourage others to join this family.

The education at CIS not only helped me build a sound theoretical foundation but also a practical knowledge that is directly relevant to the work I do in the industry. As a proud member of the pioneering batch of graduates, I should mention that, even back then, the academic environment was conducive to study: things have only improved since those early days. I developed many lifelong friendships with wonderful, like-minded people at CIS. If you’re coming here, beware: you’ll have to tolerate the immensely beautiful surroundings of misty mountains!

 


Kashumi Madampe - 2010/ 2011 batch

Following my Bachelor’s Degree at the Department of Computing and Information Systems was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made. The department has done a tremendous service to students by opening doors to multi disciplinary areas in the IT world. The highly qualified academic staff and the updated curriculum helped me a lot to get indulged with the fast-paced industry. The hands-on approach allowing to get involved in the industry by taking an internship during the study took my learning beyond theory. It helped me a lot to get prepared to move with the workforce. The open-ended learning environment supported me to carry out research as well under excellent supervision. I am very much thankful to my lecturers and the department, and I have been so fortunate to graduate with a First Class degree from the Department of Computing and Information Systems which enormously shaped my career.
