|Project Description: ||This project is focused on the design of a software system for student recruitment in the Department of Enrollment Management, Texas A&M University Ė Corpus Christi.
The system provides functionality to search and view a studentís academic, demographic, and admissions data accompanied by an individualized communication with the students who are most likely to attend the University. The software enhances the quality, accuracy, and consistency of communications with prospective students, which ultimately strengthens the studentís relationship with the University. The software helps in initiating and developing personal relationships with potential students. In developing this software, a database of the prospective students was constructed in Oracle9i. The database is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that provides rapid transaction and data sharing in either a single or multi user environment.
The software is designed using Borland JBuilder9. The prospective student database was developed using Oracle9i, since it is a high-performance, cross-platform embeddable database that is used around the world. Combining simple installation, automatic crash recovery, and minimal maintenance, the Oracle database is extremely well suited for database applications.
