Abstract

The current course scheduling process at Worcester Polytechnic Institute often results in an inefficient assignment of courses to classrooms due to the manual work, and other challenges, involved. The goal of this project was to develop a mathematical model and a software tool that will help WPI develop a more efficient course schedule. By creating this software tool, the process of course scheduling was automated, and an improved course schedule was produced. The program allows for the integration of changes in schedule information, as well as flexibility and future expansion of the model.
