All is set for incoming first years who will be the pioneer students to be registered using Biometric registration. The 2016 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates will be the first students admitted and registered using the Biometric system in September 2017, at the University of Nairobi.

The biometric registration process involves obtaining students fingerprints, their digital signature, a digital passport photograph and scanning of important documents such as the national identification card.

The College of Biological and Physical Sciences (CBPS) has already trained administration, technical staff, ICT staff and heads of units, a month to receiving the new students expected to hit 1,000 as they join the Biological, Physical, Mathematics and Computing and Informatics Schools in the College.

Speaking during the Biometric training at the College held on July 31, 2017; the Principal of CBPS, Prof. Bernard Aduda, emphasized that the Biometric registration will assist in efficient record keeping of student details.

The Director of ICT Centre, Mr. Christopher Moturi explained that the Biometric system which is integrated with the Student Management Information System (SMIS), current scope is to handle student registration. “However, the system has the potential to be extended to examination and class attendance as well as staff registration”, Moturi explained.

Biometric system is among the automated operations marshaled in ICT Centre under the Management Information System (MIS) section. Other systems which cater for essential student functions include: eLearning, SMIS and SMIS student portal as well as Halls Management Information System.
