As part of the centenary celebrations for the founding of the Jordanian state, and within the framework of its integrated digital transformation, Princess Sumaya University for Technology launched the "Academic Lecturer File" program, with the aim of facilitating the easy preparation of reports and statistics for all academic activities, at any time.
The software, which was developed by the programming team at the Royal Scientific Society, following specific ideas from the University, aims to enable faculty members to record all their activities, events and achievements, thus making a reference for themselves and the University, to be used during the evaluation stages to ensure accuracy, non-repetition of information, and ease of handling.
During the launch ceremony, which was held via visual communication technology and attended by all faculty members, PSUT’s president, Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai, said that the University decided to celebrate the centenary of the state's founding in a way that is out of the ordinary by producing something new and commensurate with PSUT’s being a pioneer and innovator in the technical and administrative fields.
Prof. Al-Refai added that PSUT, under the guidance of HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan, Chair of its Board of Trustees, seeks to keep pace with every development that serves the teaching and learning processes, and to move ahead in all areas that facilitate the method of work and ensures its accuracy. He took the opportunity to offer his thanks to the Royal Scientific Society.
The Society's Vice President for Technical Affairs, Dr. Nabeel Al-Fayoumi, said that this advanced system came as a result of the integration of efforts between PSUT and the RSS, and is part of an integrated strategy for digital transformation that the two teams are working on to achieve its goals. The aim is to bring about a qualitative leap and distinction in academic administration and administrative services. He added that work will continue on a permanent and continuous development of the University's integrated system of academic and educational management and operations.
The Vice President for Administrative Affairs, Prof. Mohammad Sababheh, who came up with the idea of the software, indicated that the software is a complement to the registration and graduate studies software in use at the University, and that the University will thus have "completed" all its academic and research operations, in a way that serves the administrative process associated with these procedures in terms of quality control, standardization, and accuracy of information sources.
On the necessity and merit of this software, Prof. Sababheh added that it will facilitate the process of data extraction, statistics and reporting, and put an end to the burden of paperwork for members of the faculty. Furthermore, it will be of great benefit in the process of applying for promotion, attending conferences, and research incentives.
It should be noted that PSUT is seeking to "automate" all its administrative and academic procedures and processes before the end of 2022.
