However due to the increasing number of new students registering, the administration staff can’t cope with problems associated with the manual system. The major problems with current system range from losing student records, delays while registering and searching for student record to inconsistencies and data duplication.
Description of proposed system
The main aim of this project is to develop systems that will simplify registration and record keeping process for students and administration staff in a variety of ways. The system will be centralized database management system based on SQL server and will be developed in .net language (Vb.net or C#).
The hope is that providing an easy to use graphical user interface will enable self-registration amongst the students thus relieving the pressure on administration staff. The system will enable the college to store information about students’ payments, performance record such as marks. This will enable college administration query the database, generate reports dynamically and make informed decisions based on the data collected.
