admtcThe Advance Digital Multimedia Technology Centre (ADMTC) was established under the University of Colombo School of Computing (UCSC) in order to implement the “Project for Human Resource Development in Information Technology through Capacity Building of UCSC” that was supported by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) as a three year Technical Cooperation Project between the Government of Sri Lanka and the Government of Japan from June 2002 to May 2005. This project had three major components.
