A project by Ecodev Sarl

Triangle Azur

The Swiss Universities of Geneva, Lausanne and Neuchâtel decided to create a coordination and cooperation platform called Triangle d'Azur.

The purpose of the website is to:

  • help students make a choice among the available master studies
  • show what equivalent master studies offer / require
  • provide information about the collaboration between universities at the masters levels

Specifications

One key request was the development of a system that enables a clear and visual comparison of the different masters in the three universities.

Implementation

The database contains a table with all the information about the masters, categorized by subject.

Tesseract is used to produce 1) a display of an overview table of the masters sorted by subject and 2) a detailed view with "donuts" diagrams and a complete description of the cursus. When a master is common to two universities, respectively three universities, the idea is to have only one common display for this master. This required the use of Tesseract's "PHP Display" to solve the various display cases.

Tesseract's flexibility allowed us to produce the requested outputs without having to develop a specific extension.
