Course scheduling for modular educational system

Department of Science & Technology

Project Description

In modular educational systems, students have a certain degree of freedom to choose their own subjects. Usually, the choices a student is allowed to make are subject to constraints, such like choosing courses from given pools of electives. This pedagogical concept is already practiced in certain parts of Europe, like in the German Gymnasium and is being increasingly adopted in other countries (i.e. in Austria with the "modulare Oberstufe"). However implementing such a course election system in practice is a major challenge for educational institutions, that can only be solved using advanced optimization algorithms and AI techniques. In this applied research project we investigate algorithms for solving different variants of this problem efficiently and help schools and educational institutions implement this concept in practice.
