Abstract

One of the major problems of the modern university is the process of student advisement and course scheduling. The purpose of this paper is to write a computer program which will aid in solving this problem of student advisement and course scheduling for the undergraduate students of the College of Engineering at Florida Technological University. the computer program which is developed in this paper, aids in the problem of student advisement by producing a one page output for each student. This output page, which is separated by department, lists all courses the student has taken and passed, all transfer hours, and a list of courses recommended to be taken in the next three sequential quarters. The input data is taken from the master student file and the approved petitions for transfer hours which are kept in the Dean's office. In addition the program produces projected enrollment figures for the next three sequential quarters. This output is intended for the administrative personnel responsible for course scheduling. Future development using this program could be the development of a program to help advise students for the entire university and to schedule courses, faculty members and rooms.
