Maharashtra government has tied up with US-based Campus Management Corporation to roll out cloud-based end-to-end student admission system.
Students applying to universities in Maharashtra could experience state-of-art admission end-to-end admission system with single window system from application to seat allotments to career advisory services. The project, reportedly the first of its kind initiative in India, will digitalise the administrative and academic processes of all the 14 non-technical universities in the state.
The University Management System (UMS), which will be kicked off next week, will drive the admission process of about 8 million students for non-technical courses in Maharashtra from next year. US-based IT services provider UST Global is also a part of the project. Among its major clients in India, the National Skill Development Corporation and IIM Udaipur is already using Campus Management Corporation’s software platform. The whole system has been built by the Bengaluru team of the company on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, which is one of the oldest partners of the Campus Management Corp.
“We will track the students for the entire college cycle beginning from allotment of college to career services,” – Raj Mruthyunjayappa, MD, Campus Management Corporation.
UMS will look at all the criteria, including academic scores and reservation category of the candidates, before assigning them colleges. It will then track the academic performance, grades and attendance of the students through its cloud-based software. As the academic cycle gets over, UMS will connect the industry with the students’ base for employment opportunities.
