Strata Connect is a platform that connects students with companies. Companies can provide different types of opportunities that students can then apply for using a single profile.
Companies are also able to see what opportunities their competitors are providing for students as well as the requirements for them.
Altron (Allied Electronics Corporation Limited) has been identified
as a corporation experiencing the problem stated above.
The bursary system at Altron aims to help students to go to
university without having to worry about school fees,
accommodation, book and food allowance as well as any other external factors besides doing well in their education.
bursary process is completely paper -based. Students apply for the
bursary by filling out a form that is emailed to them. The form is
then checked by a bursary administrator and evaluated. The bursary
administrator then types out a personalised response to the
applicant stating the outcome of the application. The entire
process is done over the bursary administrator’s company email
address, this means all the person’s other work emails also go to
the same mailbox and hence, applications can be overlooked
(Kok, 2019).The above process is not isolated to this one company, many
companies face these or similar challenges and our proposed
solution aims to be flexible enough to solve all these problems for
We provide a platform for students who are searching for different types of opportunities of bursaries. These opportunities are relevant to the industry in their field of study. Students can view all available opportunities but only apply for the ones they qualify for using a single profile.
We provide a platform for companies to display the different opportunities they offer to students. Companies are able to create bursaries. Companies also have the choice of providing vacation work thus enabeling them to manage the students on the system.
About the Project
About the Project
We as Strata Connect have created an online platfrom where students can edit their profile and apply for various opportunities that companies have created. Depending on wheather students qualify for specific opportunities they are allowed to apply. From our case study Altron we have identified a few problems, namely:
No form of management for a high number of applications
The loss of time and productivity of employees
Capturing of data considering handwriting, missing out important fields, preventing human error
Applicants applying for opportunities they do not qualify for
There is no way of generating reports
The supposed solution:
We have to built a system that is available to companies and students. This system allows students a more comprehensive view of
opportunities available and enables companies to streamline their applications processes. This system automates the applications processes, thus giving employees that handle the bursary applications process more time to perform other tasks. Our system enables an easier way for generating reports that will help companies make detailed decisions.
