Using MATLAB to Optimize UWEC Class Schedule Building
MetadataShow full item record
As courses fill up during student registration, the College of Arts and Sciences needs to open new sections. MATLAB, a programming language that implements the use of mathematical functions, was used to create a model to help the College of Arts and Sciences find the optimal time to open a new course section. This model finds the optimal time by comparing the estimated number of available students at each proposed time slot.
