Huge Count of Applications At CUSAT

The Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) received a huge number of applications ans also revenues this year for its Common Admission Test (CAT 2012) for admissions into B.Tech and Post Graduate courses. A total number of 39,500 students have been registered for CAT this year ie..1060 B.Tech seats and 440 seats in other courses. As per the records last year it was 34,000 and 32,000 in 2010.

The revenue generated this year was Rs.3.75 crore as against Rs.3.24 crore in 2011 and Rs.2.94 crore in 2010. This achievement despite the varsity facing technical snags while introducing an open-source software development by the university and using the varsity's own server for this first time.

An official said “It functioned when we tested with data of 5000 students, but when the database grew in the implementation stage, it took a long time for students to access the data, resulting in long queues. But after a few days, this was rectified”.

It is for the first time, the varsity also successfully introduced fee payments by credit and debit card and a total of 10,000 students made use of this facility. Last year, the university had uploaded photos of students and this year the facility was offered to students themselves and a whopping 34,000 students made use of this provision. However, “This was a big saving for the varsity. Last year, we had to spend 890 man days for uploading the photos alone” said the official.
