Today, Sana’a University launched a project to automate a number of official institutions by directing the graduates’ projects in the Faculty of Computer & Information Technology to implement 40 electronic systems and applications for these institutions.
Sana’a University Rector, Prof. Al-Qassim Mohammad Abass, stated that the project involved the implementation of 40 electronic systems and applications for the Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Agriculture and their affiliated sectors, as an initial stage.
The University Rector pointed out that the six-month project includes analyzing the systems in these authorities and noting down the requirements. This will be followed by the implementation of design and programming work for office applications, websites and mobile applications, according to the needs of each authority, and based on the requirements agreed upon in the analysis phase.
