The scheduling of student courses is an imperative as well as a trivial process that can cope with unnecessary industrial and graduation delays. The Department of Electrical and Communication (EECE) at the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) is one such organization where students encounter problems conditional on many issues that may include improper course advising system, students’ capability to pursue upright advice from advisers, knowledge, and adequate skills of the academic advisors, etc. Inappropriately advised students may endure issues such as lost time because of incorrect course selection, course planning with conflicting offering times, not selecting appropriate courses specific for offering semesters, wrongly selecting o discipline-specific electives, planning either too less or too many courses for a specific semester, etc. An Academic Course Planning Software System (ACPSS) is devised to help students in creating a course study plan to guide them select suitable courses at the registration time. The outcome of this course selection process, which takes the form of a detailed study plan, is recorded in a text file. The system is tested by more than 20 students, however, three test cases are included in this article.
