Final year students’ project has been one of the requirements for graduation from institutions of higher learning, especially universities, colleges, and polytechnics. The main concern is the complexity associated with managing the task, which increases with respect to the size of problem instance. Although, the use of computer technology has advanced to various fields, manual process of managing students’ projects is being practiced almost everywhere. This indicates the inadequacy of the existing technology to address the problem. With the increasing demand for centralized matching systems for students’ projects verification and allocation within higher institutions, there is a need for an efficient software package that eliminates or minimises the use of manual process. The use of paper and pen to verify a project title or shelf storage of completed students’ project reports, consumes time, and is prone to errors or records loss. In this paper, a web-based platform called Online Final Students’ Project Management System (OFSProMS) was developed. The system was implemented for the Department of Mathematics, Gombe State University, in order to handle such complexities. Tools used include PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML and CSS. Observation and interview were used for collecting the data. The waterfall model was adopted as the system design approach. Upon testing with 48 final year project titles, the system was able to verify 45 successfully, which corresponds to an accuracy of 93.75%. Therefore, this system if deployed would go a long way in simplifying the task for project coordinators, supervisors and the students in general
