Development of online project registration and management system (ePRM) for masters by coursework

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Research Methodology and Project are compulsory courses in the master’s programme by coursework mode at the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment (FKAB), UKM. Currently, project registration and management for those courses has been carried out manually. This method imposes difficulty and not effective in the registration and monitoring process due to the nature of the courses that involves time critical events and deliveries. Therefore, a better project registration and management system needs to be developed. This paper presents the development of a coursework project registration and management system for the postgraduate students at the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Systems Engineering (JKEES), FKAB. An online system named ePRM was built and can be accessed by postgraduate students, supervisors, examiners and programme coordinators. With this system, important processes such as selection of supervisors, project titles, assignments and reports submission can be carried out online. Assessment by several parties can also be carried out more effectively. Subsequently, project monitoring especially by the programme coordinators can be performed effortlessly. The effectiveness of this system will be tested with the students of the upcoming session and improvements will be made from time to time. This system can also be expanded to other undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in FKAB.
