|Abstract: ||Smart card is a plastic card embedded with a microprocessor chip, which stores users information and transact the information to a computing system via a card reader. Smart card has been widely used throughout many industries including banking, healthcare, entertainment and manufacturing. The higher learning industry is one of the growing industries that have embraced the smart card technology in their campus automation and resource management. Among the universities that have implemented smart card as a part of their business operation includes University Utara Malaysia, University Multimedia, Malaysia, University of Ottawa, University of Nottingham and Florida State University.

With many years of operation, the institute still maintain a manual system in student’s attendance tracking and lab and library usage. The manual system has created many challenges and issues to the institute, resulting the CEO of Goon Institute, Kuala Lumpur has requested this research to develop a smart card framework and a prototype system on how the system can resolve their current problems.
Realising the benefits of smart card usage at the higher learning industries, this research was confident to recommend a good smart card system to Goon Institute, Kuala Lumpur. This research conducted an in-depth study on the smart card study and has developed a conceptual framework and a smart card prototype system based on the recommended conceptual model. The prototype system was named as Electronic Student Tracking System, which a user evaluation was conducted and the users was satisfied with the system and agrees that the system will resolve all their current problems in student attendance, lab and library usage.|
