Ege Deliguru and Onat Çipli, both juniors from Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Izmir University of Economics (IUE), developed a software program which generates alternatives for weekly course schedules in course selection process. Students will be able to see the best weekly course schedule combinations by entering the course codes in www.whichisgreat.com titled website.
Ege Deliguru gave information about their program and said, “We are able to select our courses and plan accordingly before the start of each semester. Even though it has great advantage, we cannot go beyond three alternatives in weekly schedules. The reason is that there are many combinations and we fail to find them all. On the other hand, when we take courses online and when there is not available quota, we do not have much of an alternative. We started to work on an automated course Schedule generator. We uploaded all the courses that will be offered this semester, and allowed students to see alternative course schedules after they select their courses”.
Deliguru also reported that they prepared an instructional video and visuals on how to upload and use the program. He said that Asst. Prof. Dr. Gazihan Alankuş, Head of IUE Department of Mechatronics Engineering, guided them while they developed their program.
