Academic structure for bachelor degree in Malaysia universities consists of Final Year Project (FYP). Unfortunately, the management of the FYP is implemented manually or not fully utilizing an integrated computer system. It results in slower implementation of the FYP and inaccurate marks for the project’s evaluation. This article proposes a new approach for solving the above stated problems named FYP Management System. The approach is tested using real dataset of University Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia’s (UTHM) students and lecturers. As a user satisfaction measure, 92.3% users have acknowledge FYP Management System has assisted them in managing student’s project while 95.6% users have recognized this approach has accelerated FYP grading process.
