DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF COMPUTERIZED STUDENT REGISTRATION SYSTEM . A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCEABSTRACT
This work introduces a computer oriented approach to the registration of students in the admissions department of Institute of Management and Technology (IMT) Enugu as opposed to the Manual process that is currently in use. Although there may be a computer system existing already in the department used for staff and student’s services, it cannot handle the registration of the students since it was not initially designed for this, if there is, the computer, system may be making use of batch processing techniques.
The loopholes in the existing system (manual) will be taken into account in designing the new system. All the system’s specification required to put the system into operation will be considered. This on-line operation will be made to be user-interactive. The programming language to be used for the system’s design and development is visual basic 6.0.
This work is expected to eliminate the shortcomings of the existing system thereby being an explicit solution to implicit problems inherent in the system.
1.1 THE PROBLEMS AND ITS SETTING
In our modern technological age, science strives as it can to alleviate the problems of man with a view of making like less tedious for him. With the advent of computers in the later forties which is regarded as one of the greatest scientific discovery, the problems of our society are gradually being reduced to their minimum level.
The aims of this project in a more improved and confined way is the use of computer in the registration of students in the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT) Enugu.
The design involves the steps to software development using Visual Basic (VB) 6.0.
1.2 THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of this study is to provide the overview of the existing system, sport the shortcomings, design and develop a new system that will be able to overcome these limitations of the existing system.
