Prof Liyanage De Silva welcomes all readers interested in the activities of School of Digital Science at Universiti Brunei Darussalam to join our community in our journey of academia and research.
We are pleased to announce the first issue of the postgraduate and faculty newsletter of School of Digital Science. We are a new school offering the Bachelor of Digital Science degree with the following majors: Computer Science, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence & Robotics, Cybersecurity & Forensic.
Previously, running Computer Science as a major as a Bachelor of Science degree, the school has now expanded, having currently 7 PhD, 5 Masters and over 50 Bachelors’ students. We are expecting more than 20 students to graduate at the 2021 convocation. We are proud that our graduates have found work in their respective disciplines at EVYD, DST, BIBD, Dynamik Technologies, Shell and some have gone to pursue further studies both at UBD and abroad.
At the school currently we have a total of 14 members, 12 academic and 2 administrative staff. Our academic staff specialises in the research areas of Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, Robotics, Internet of Things and Cybersecurity, having published over 50 papers in highly reputable journals and conferences this year.
