The study focused on the design, development, and implementation of an automated attendance monitoring system for the faculty members of the College of Engineering and Information Technology of the University of Batangas Lipa Campus. The researchers identified the inefficiency of the manual attendance of the CEIT. The researchers use developmental research in creating automation for the manual attendance system. The system mainly composes of biometric scanner that will serve as the identification for the faculty members as the input, the system unit for accepting input, processing the data, and crystal reports for the output. The system was developed using Microsoft VB.Net as the programming language and developed through the latest Microsoft Visual Studio environment. The database system used for storing and retrieving the data to be processed MySQL. The system was tested by different faculty members who are enrolled and not enrolled in the system which will be the users of the system. The researchers follow the software quality standard ISO 9126 in evaluating the system that focuses on the Functionality, Reliability, Usability, Efficiency, Maintainability, and Portability of the system. It is recommended for the future development of the system to be implemented using Microcontroller-based, maintained, and applied to all the departments of the university.
