Abstract

University Course Timetabling Problem (UCTP) is an educational timetabling problem that deals with the task of assigning educational events (lectures, tutorials, and laboratories) and lecturers to timeslots and classrooms or lab; to generate a weekly schedule. The UCTP has gathered great research interests for decades. Many solution approaches and models have been published in the literature. However, different institutions may have different requirement, which results in a gap between benchmark UCTP and practical problems. Therefore, in this work, we have conducted a survey to investigate the satisfaction factors of a course timetable for a Practical University Course Timetabling Problem at Fakulti Teknologi dan Sains Maklumat, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.
