UUCMS is touted as the flagship project of Karnatak University, which when completed will establish an integrated system that will house data on all students, with all relevant details, starting with admission. The system will have data on all students enrolled and pursuing their studies in all affiliated colleges of the university.
Everything under one roof
Sources said the Department of Higher Education is launching the system as part of its overall plan to eliminate paper usage by moving to digitizing all academic records. “The UUCMS will serve as an integral database and unified portal through which students can access information on all of our affiliated institutions. Students can register on our website: UUCMS.Karnataka.Gov.in, to apply for course admission and track the status of their applications. Once registered, students can have all the information about their academic functions, including tracking their performance in assignments, academic projects, etc. said an official from Karnatak University.
Karnatak University Vice Chancellor KB Gudasi told TOI, “The system has already been rolled out in our constituent colleges. We started using UUCMS for our admissions process. Apart from the students, the faculty will upload lesson plans, assignment details and syllabus to the database, making it a comprehensive system for academic activities.
Megha G, a student at Karnataka College, welcomed the initiative which she said would help them track their attendance, while also facilitating the process of accessing their grade cards and other documents. “We will be freed from having to carry around a stack of papers,” she said.
