Abstract

Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) in Malaysia is the body held responsible to conduct the accreditation processes based on the manual of the Engineering Programme Accreditation. This process necessitates high commitment, also consumes cost and time by the academicians and support staff. This is because they are required to prepare a document that may divert their attention from performing their usual tasks of teaching, researching and publicizing. In obtaining the accreditation, an accreditation report should be produced and submitted for the evaluation by the EAC committee. The difficulty of gathering information is prominent in this stage, especially in a process of collecting the most important evidence of information and materials in the absence of a proper recording and not having the monitoring information system in place. In Perisian Dokumentasi Akreditasi (MyPDA), System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) has been applied to develop the information database. The system and website are best viewed with Mozzilla Firefox, Intereti Explorer 7.0, Opera and Safari with the resolution of 1024×768. The system will be developed and tested on the Window XP platform. It will be hosted on the Apache server using the PHP language and MySQL database. The system consist of three extension systems and one new system, i.e., lecturer activity, student activity, PEO and survey. With information technology, it can also increase communication across various parties involved and the administration's productivity. Therefore, the development of the information system which helps boost the process of accreditation is crucial.
