Student Management System

ABSTRACT A Student management is a very important part of university management, and according to the actual situation of the school work, student management system can not only improve the efficiency of staff and students, but can also be a time and resources saver. In this project, object oriented design methods are applied to the development of the system. The author will use Rational Rose UML modeling to complete the requirement analysis of the student management system, and the functionality and performance analysis. CHAPTER 1 - INTRODUCTION 1. 1 Introduction

In recent years, with the growth of colleges and universities across the globe, the number of students is also increasing exponentially, which is sure to bring university management a great deal of stress. University student management as relevant part of university management, and its significance cannot be ignored. Therefore how to ease the stress on university management as the number of university students increases has been a problem that we have to face. With the continuous development and improvement of computer technology and the growth of the

Internet technology, Information Technology is rapidly spreading into various fields of human social life and plays an increasingly significant role. Student management system is an information system that can do various types of data collection, storage, processing, transformation and transmission. It is the application of IT in the field of teaching management. An efficient student management system is not only for the smooth development of the university management to provide favorable conditions, but also plays an important role to improve the quality of tertiary Education. . 2 Problem statement Misuse of resources, be it human or material can have great effect on any nations'' socio-political and economic development (Annam, 2010). In the following management system currently being used at Makerere University. Typographic errors and data integrity: a lot of unavoidable errors are made with the manual system especially during data collection and entry. This makes information inaccurate and goes a long way to affect the integrity of the university student management system.

Data security: data stored on shelves or in file cabinets can easily be damaged by insects or fire. They could even be destroyed by employees over time due to degradation from constant handling, and may be accessed by unauthorized persons. 1. 3 Solutions The new system will help make data collection and entry more accurate, thereby ensuring the dissemination of accurate information to the various users of the student management system. The new system will make sure data is securely stored and will only be accessed by authorized personnel. . 4 Aim To introduce, develop and implement a student management system for Makerere University 1. 5 Objectives 1. To review the existing manual system and application. . To compare similar existing systems and applications. 3. To review the relevant topics/concepts/technologies related to the project. 4. To review methodologies and propose a suitable methodology for the project. 5. To carry out fact-finding/information gathering for the new system. 6.

To design the database and the interface of the new system. 1. 6 Rationale Makerere University is one of Uganda''s top universities and still manages student information manually. This manual system faces a number of challenges that affects the core of the student management systems. Some of these challenges include; ypographic errors, inadequate data security or the complete lack thereof, data integrity issues, difficulty in data accessibility, unmanageable data control, etc. herefore, the aim of this project is to introduce, develop and implement a student management system for the University in order to eliminate the barriers placed by the current manual system. 1. 7 Summary In this chapter, the author has covered the scope, aim and objective of the new proposed student management system and also the problem statement of the existing manual system and also how these problems will be solved using various tools and techniques.
