Lahore : Punjab University Vice Chancellor Prof Dr. Zafar Mueen Nasir has officially inaugurated Punjab University College of Information Technology’s indigenous single sign on admission system. PUCIT Principal Prof Dr Mansoor Sarwar and senior faculty members were present on the occasion.
According to details, every year PUCIT attracts more than 16,000 students from all over the country to appear in the entrance tests for admission to the various academic degree programs in the college. This year PUCIT has built and deployed an automated online system to facilitate students to register for the entrance tests at the college.
The system has been built in-house and hosted on a cloud to ensure high availability and good performance. The automated solution allows students to register online, print challan forms, pay entrance test fee to their nearest HBL branches and print roll number slips.
The system will greatly facilitate students to complete the process of registration without visiting the campus. Previously, students were required to travel to the college premises and spend considerable time in long queues to complete the entrance test registration process.
The vice-chancellor appreciated PUCIT Principal Prof Dr Mansoor Sarwar’s efforts in automating key business processes in the college for the sake of transparency and efficiency. He commended the efforts of team of college teachers and staff who spearheaded the efforts, particularly Dr. Shahid Farid, Dr. Waheed Iqbal, Kamran Malik and Asim Siddique and his team at PUCIT Agile Technologies.
On the first day of online registration, more than 1,500 applicants signed up and printed their challan forms to submit the fee. This year, PUCIT expects to receive a record number of applicants due to this hassle-free, automated, and online process at their doorstep.
