Abstract—Student course registration is an important as well as a trivial process that may encounter unnecessary graduation delays. Electrical Engineering Department of the United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) is one such place where students have faced problems such as, a lack of a proper advising system, awareness and experience of advisers, students’ ability to seek good advice, inappropriate advising time schedules, etc. Students not advised fittingly may suffer with problems which may include, course selection with time conflicts, missing out on suitable courses for specific semesters, choosing electives bypassing track restrictions, selecting too many or less courses, selecting unnecessary and incorrect courses, etc. An Automated Course Advising System (ACAS) is devised to guide students in selecting appropriate courses suitable to register online with the Banner System. ACAS software is developed by using JAVA computer programming language. The system is easily operated and the outcome of the course selection is stored to show a complete typical plan.
