Abstract: Annotation. Digitalization of higher education in order to improve the quality of graduate training is one of the urgent problems of education in the Russian Federation. The object of study is the management of educational activities at a university. The subject of the study is the process of creating a unified automated information system (UAIS) for managing a university. The purpose of this study is to create a unified automated information system that provides stakeholders with reliable and relevant information, which is updated in real time and creates the conditions for satisfying their needs. To ensure a systematic approach to solving the problem, the following research methods were used: analysis, synthesis, formalization and modeling. The article discusses the design of information systems based on various approaches, provides a description of modules that automate the basic processes associated with educational activities in the Altai State Technical University. The scientific novelty of the presented UAIS is as follows: the organizational and technological tools of university management have been developed; information support of the main processes in the university based on a three-tier client-server architecture is proposed; the client part of the application is implemented as a web client, and this allows to minimize its dependence on the operating system and organize a quick transition to the use of domestic software; the proposed approach to automating business processes allows you to quickly respond and update UAIS in connection with changes in the requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation in the field of education. The experience of designing an information system in the Altai State Technical University can be useful in solving a similar problem in other educational organizations.
Index terms: digitalization of education, process approach, information system, information resources, compliance with the requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation in the field of higher education.
