The UNWE is the first university in Bulgaria which brought into use the E-Student Books, pointed out Prof. Stattev. Their owners became 4 000 first year Bachelor students who began their education in the current year. The plastic is similar to the identity card and contains a microchip with digital seal of UNWE, full student information about the owner as well as an individual sign of the student whose name is written in Cyrillic and Roman alphabet, explained Prof. Stattev. He presented both kinds of E-Student Book: complex one containing three components – E-Student Book, debit card and ISIC and single one including only E-Student Book.

The Rector examined the advantages of E-Student Book – educational, financial and helping. Through it each student at any time at any of the nine devices located in the building of UNWE can be informed about the student status – grades, scholarships, health insurance, dormitories, all administrative services, academic schedule – sessions, lectures, exams, etc. There is also an application for smartphones to read the information in the E-Student Book, specified Prof. Stattev.

This project is an intermediate stage in the full electronization of UNWE, pointed out the Rector. At the UNWE there is an approved system for digital signing of academic protocols for already four years and the system of electronic general books has worked for already two years. It is natural that our following step is the E-Student Book.

At the opening of the academic year at the UNWE I pointed out that this university is not only a place for obtaining knowledge but also skills, said Milena Damyanova. She admired the project for the E-Student Book and determined it as an innovative and useful solution. It is not just an electronization of several services but it is part of the general strategy of UNWE. I hope that more universities will use the experience of UNWE and will incorporate the innovation, outlined Damyanova. The newly incorporated E-Student Books will make the education useful and pleasant as for students as for the lecturers, emphasized the Chairman of the Education and Science Committee.
