TCENet, our college’s intranet portal with nearly 2 dozen modules has won the PCQuest magazine’s most innovative IT implementation award for the year 2007. The TCENet project, actually an ERP called the TCEERP, was nominated for the award in May 2007. There were about 250 nominations in all and TCENet has bet them all to get this coveted award.
The success of the TCENet is mainly because of the great encouragement and support given to us by our principal Dr. V. Abhai Kumar and the support of our staff incharge Dr. S. Mercy Shalinie. The project has been able to reach these great heights only because of the 24×7 support from our alumni. One point that needs mention is that TCENet is designed developed and maintained solely by the students of the college, with the guidance of some alumni. The project began as a simple portal almost 8 yrs back and now it is full fledged ERP software for engg colleges. The project began as a 2 tier implememtation using JSP and Oracle. Now, this has been reimplented with a lot of changes and a whole new set of features as a 3-tier application and is fully FOSS based. TCENet now uses Python for its business logic, Cheetah for its presentation logic and Postgres database.
The TCENet project has automated various processes like student admission, staff attendence monitoring using a biometric system, student attendence, sessional marks for students, and various utility services like issue tracking system, software forum etc. As a part of the TCENet project, college also provides and maintains email accounts for all students and staff under the domain tce.edu. The mailbox size is 20 MB, which is more than sufficient for handling all college related mail.
A lot of people have benn constantly helping for the succes of TCENet, the most important among them being our own alumnis who were a part of the project in their college days. Special thanks to Mr. Joe Steeve, Mr. Ananth Shrinivas, Mr.Senthil Kumaran and all other alumni who were a part of the TCENet project and helped it grow.
