SU attains one more landslide distinction as it launches ultra-modern E-portal
It came as one more landmark day in the history of University of Sindh as the varsity’s I.T. Services Centre launched student-friendly E-portal designed exclusively to provide a wide range of online amenities to its 35000 on-campus student populace.
SU Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat inaugurated the state-of- the art, cutting-edge digital facility in a simple yet graceful ceremony at the Senate Hall of the Vice Chancellor Secretariat in the presence of campus pro vice chancellors, deans, academic and administrative heads, faculty, officers, employees and students.
Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Fateh Muhammad Burfat, in his remarks as Chief Guest of the ceremony said that SU was leading all its sister public sector higher education institutions in online system advancements – a fact which had been duly endorsed and appreciated by Sindh Education Minister Nisar Ahmed Khuhro a couple of days back at Larkana in his meeting with the vice chancellors as he asked VCs to emulate example of online attendance system of University of Sindh.
“ Since the inception of my tenure as SU Vice Chancellor, I have taken modernization of all systems at SU as my number one priority, for I understand the varsity would not progress until it fell in step with the ever-changing trends in technology”, Dr. Burfat urged.
The E-portal would enable students to view the profile information that they had earlier shared with the University during the admission process, update their email and mobile contact numbers in order to remain constantly in touch with the University for seeking useful updates or notifications, monitor their attendance of current semester as well as previous semester(s), see and print the marks sheet(s) of any previous semester/year, apply for scholarships offered by the student financial aid office of the varsity, fill and submit student evaluation forms at the end of the semester to share their experience of learning during the whole semester, fill and submit semester examination forms, download various forms such as enrollment application, form for admission in the next higher class, application form for hostel accommodation – all through one window service.
Further, the students would also be able to initiate online application process for acquiring eligibility certificate, enrollment card, hostel accommodation form and no dues certificates.
The E-portal is also anticipated to entail an extensive range of additional facility features in the near future. Those expected innovations include online inward/outward mail system, online result submission and processing system, online management system for procurement office of the varsity, online management system for HR and pay-roll, E-portal for research students and web portal for the University of Sindh alumni.
Earlier, SU Director IT Services Centre Prof. Dr. Yasir Arafat Malkani presented welcome note and highlighted essential attributes of the introduced amenity.
