Abstract

A goal programming model is built to optimize the allocation of students into academic departmentss of a faculty. The goal programming model takes into account the limits of space capacity, financial allocation, the number of instructors and affirmative action quotas as goal constraints that are required to be fulfilled. Each constraint has a priority level and a weight attached. This goal programming model is then applied to the Faculty of Science and Technology, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. The results of the preemptive goal programming model are then compared to that of the current allocation using the weighted mean absolute percentage error. The successful application demonstrates the ability of the goal programming model to comply with the student intake requirement and goal constraints of the academic departments.
