The Data Processing Unit (DPU) was commissioned in rain semester 2005/2006 academic session with a mandate to electronically process academic results of full time undergraduate, with a view to harmonise the academic result processes within a stipulated time frame. The new unit headed by Dr. Moses A. Akanbi swung into action and produced an excel template for the initial computation processes.
The Unit since its inauguration then have been at the forefront of processing full time students’ academic results, generation of transcripts request, capturing of old student’s profile (1984-1999), support for lecturers and students, results Database management, Special project (senate document archiving, Postgraduate Result processing, and recently Sandwich program result processing) to mention but few.
Overtime, the Unit has evolved, transiting from electronic computation using Microsoft excel macros and Microsoft access applications to a more robust e-process platform.
This provides more accuracy and minimal error in computation of fulltime students’ academic results in a seamless, real time and dynamic manner using current global ICT tools.
Our mission is to continually avail lecturers and students’ real time access and support in uploading and accessing students’ academic profile from any part of the world.
The academic profile of any full time student can be accessed in real time online from https://dpu.lasu.edu.ng
The DPU team provides
The Lagos State University, by extension the Data Processing Unit is a clear leader in making available students’ academic records online and real time, with a friendly disposition to alleviating lecturers and students’ problems whenever such arose.
The young and dynamic DPU staff are well positioned to provide answers whenever needed.
The major advantage of the e-process developed at DPU allows students to be promptly graduated and presented at the floor of the senate for approval and summarily mobilized for NYSC all in a record time, a feat that is unprecedented in Nigeria. For instance, the graduating student of 2014/2015 academic session finished examinations in early January 2016 and the results were processed, approved by Senate same January and mobilized for NYSC in March 2016.
