The Osmania University is now launching a faculty information system on February 1.

The new system will provide details including timetable, syllabus, biodata, publications, patents received and number of research scholars supervised, among other details.

To start with, details of the faculty working in the University College of Arts and Social Sciences, OU will be made available on the information system and later will be extended to departments in all the university colleges.

“The university is launching the faculty information system on February 1 as part of its automation drive. The new system will help not just the faculty but also the administration. Not all the details of the faculty will be available. Information such as publications, patents and bio-data will be made public,” S Ramachandram, Vice-Chancellor, OU, told.

The administration has taken up automation on a large scale. Earlier, an Online Information System for students was launched to help them in paying their examination fee, tuition fee, mess and hostel fee, among others through the OU website. This apart, students can also view their examination schedule besides having access to information on activities happening in the college and on the campus.

Doing away with manual evaluation of the answer scripts, the administration also introduced on-screen evaluation for MBA examination on a pilot basis as part of automation and this was later extended to degree courses. Soon, the administration will implement the same system for evaluating answer scripts of engineering students in the University College of Engineering.

“The faculty members need not go to the designated centres for evaluating answer scripts. They can do it in the college with their login and password,"  said M Kumar, Principal, University College of Engineering.
