We Are Designing Result Computation Software For UniPort - HoD Computer Science

If everything goes according to plan, the University of Port Harcourt would soon have a simpler and easy means of computing and storing students' results. This is because the new Acting Head of Department of Computer Science in the Faculty of Science, Dr Edward Ogheneovo, has commenced the process of designing a highly secure result computation software for the University.

Making the disclosure during an interview with a UniPort News Correspondent in his office on Wednesday, June 19, 2019, Dr Ogheneovo disclosed that when fully developed and made operational, the package would be deployed to compute students’ result. “Because we now submit results online, we hope to develop appropriate software that would automatically compute students' results with accuracy and efficiency. When we put it to use, I will ensure that this special software is secure in such a way that it cannot be hacked into or accessed by unauthorised persons,” he said.

The Acting Head of Department also revealed plans to train personnel to man the hard and software laboratories for effective training of students on practical courses. Dr Ogheneovo, however, regretted that the Department would require more computers to host practical sessions for students, appealing for more computers and an electricity generating set for the Department. He also promised to ensure that staff, who are due are promptly recommended for promotion.

Dr Ogheneovo also disclosed plans to initiate collaborations with institutions and other agencies to raise impactful research. “We hope to partner multinational companies to give our students the necessary industry experience they would require to be successful in a highly competitive job environment. We shall also reach out to the Department of Maths/Statistics and Electrical/Electronic Engineering in simulation and modelling,” he disclosed. The Acting Head of Department promised to encourage robust research efforts and conference attendance during his tenure. He also stressed the need for staff in the Department to attend, at least, one international conference in a year and publish articles in indexed/google scholar journals that would enhance the visibility of the Department and the University.

Disclosing that the process of creating a new Department of Data Science from the existing Department of Computer Science is already in progress, Dr Ogheneovo promised that prompt attention would be given to students' results to enable the Department produce graduates who would compete favourably with their counterparts globally.
