The computer centre at Sagar Institute of Research and Technology (SIRT) has just developed Management Information System (MIS) for students, in which general and academic details about each student are updated regularly.
Parents or students themselves can access results, attendance, extra-curricular activities (like technical paper presentation and projects), training and placement of individual students at a glance through net. Thus parents can review achievements and drawbacks of each student on the web.
Besides MIS, the computer centre also has an online system for increasing competency among selected students in written and spoken English, increasing their vocabulary from 5000 to 10,000. The system caters to students who are weak in English, helping them to improve their communication skills. SIRT has a well-equipped computer centre with six computer labs, 380 computers, 10 to 11 faculty, four programmers and two operators. The computer centre has been set up under the guidance of
SIRT chairman Sanjeev Agrawal.
