IUniversity is a web-based information management system, designed to automate the entire operations within a modern university. IUniversity provides full support for multiple colleges and multiple departments, providing a very flexible, easy-to-use user interface and parameterized options.
IUniversity services don't stop at the point of administration and management, but it extends to provide instructors with a full picture on the academic standings of each student. It also provides any-time inquiry about any student's financial position, in addition to other administrative information related to student affairs like attendance, documents, marks, transcript, courses and many more to help the administration departments in decision making and full status monitoring.
IUniversity is built using Microsoft .NET technology, driven at the back-end by using Microsoft SQL Server, which gives the application more power in security, scalability and maintainability.
