Abstract: We consider the following problem of course scheduling and assignment of students. Students express their preferences for each course from several sets of proposed courses and each student has to take a certain number of courses from each set. A minimum number of students is required to open a course and a maximum number of students is specified for each course. The courses have to be scheduled on a limited number of periods so that simultaneous courses have no students in common. This problem can be seen as a generalization of the Student Project Allocation problem. It consists in determining which courses to open, specifying the schedule for these opened courses, and assigning students to them, so that their preferences are maximized. Our model is an Integer Programming problem, which we solve with a common available solver using an iterative process.
