Building the Master Schedule of Classes. A Reference Manual.
Miller, John E.
This manual describes in detail the procedures involved in building the Master Schedule of Classes at The Pennsylvania State University. The Schedule of Classes is prepared several terms in advance for approximately 25,000 students in 3,500 sections of 1,500 different courses, conducted by some 2,500 faculty members in more than 500 classrooms and teaching laboratories, and covering approximately 60 majors in 10 undergraduate colleges and in a Graduate School. An updating Supplement is published immediately preceding the opening of each term. Some longrange objectives of the scheduling process include (1) satisfying the course and credit requirements for all students through an optimum distribution of academic offerings, (2) developing effective, efficient, and economic uses of the resources of the institution (staff, physical facilities, courses, etc.), and (3) as a byproduct, compiling data for use in projecting future personnel, physical facilities, and fiscal requirements.
