It is Joomla....

"A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to."

If you are asking to develop CMS system, means, you need to be expertise in PHP & MySQL . Then you can build CMS system...

You can also use the existing CMS tool like Joomla OR drupal to develop CMS system.

If you're a student looking to build a cms, again there are a vast number of resources that will step you through the process. I believe that you would be best served by using google for a while to get a better idea of what a cms actually is and what problems it solves before you attempt to create or configure one. After you get a (very) basic idea, then you can use Joomla or drupal to get your hands dirty, as loqudotcom suggests above. Maybe even start with something "blog-level" like wordpress, if that suits you.

What is your comfort level with a RDBMS? You'll need to be able to get around a db if you want to move into the CMS world.
