A Priority Based Course Planning System for Electrical Engineering Department

Mohammad S. Laghari
Abstract—To create successful students an effective academic advising and course planning program is necessitated. An academic advisor is a link between the student and the institution therefore good advising is critical to the long-term success of an institution. Course planning and advising are trivial processes to ensure students fulfill the degree requirements of an institution in an all-inclusive and structured way, and without encountering unnecessary delays. As experienced academic advisors are hard to find, therefore computer programs doing course planning and academic advising are becoming popular. The United Arab Emirates University is one such institution where students have faced problems due to lack of an appropriate advising system and experienced academic advisors. In this respect, a Priority Based Course Planning System (PBCPS) is devised. PBCPS software package is developed by using the JAVA programming language. The system helps and guide students in selecting appropriate courses for a specific semester. The outcome of the course selection of a subsequent semester is stored in a file to help in course registration.

Index Terms—Academic advising, course planning, Java, software system.
