Case Study
Greenwich College is a college of further education which has recently beengranted university status. The college can now offer undergraduate andpostgraduate degrees to full-time and part-time students. The educationalstructure of the college is similar to that at the University of Greenwich andconsists of schools with several departments in each school. A single schooladministers each programme but a programme may contain courses from otherschools. A programme consists of a number of core courses and a number of optional courses. Some courses have prerequisites and cannot be taken if astudent has not already passed the prerequisite course. A student’s choice of option courses may be restricted by timetable clashes, maximum class size etc.Since having been granted university status the college has been expandingrapidly. The current enrolment system is inadequate for the job and themanagement has decided to invest in a new software solution. The system isrequired to assist in pre-enrolment activities and to handle the enrolmentprocedures. The pre-enrolment activities include the mailing out of the lastsemester’s exam results to students together with any enrolment instructions.The enrolment procedures consist of accepting the students’ proposedprogramme of study and validating them for prerequisites, timetable clashes,class sizes, special approvals etc.1.
The diagram below shows a Use Case model for the proposed enrolmentsystem.Use Case Diagram:
