    Abstract

    As at many other universities the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) faces the challenge of solving a case of the curriculum based university course timetabling problem (CUCTT) multiple times a year. However, there are some slight modications to the CUCTT problem usually described in the literature. One of the major dierence is that the assignment of the courses to specic time slots are predetermined and cannot be subject to changes. This is a decision made by the administration since this takes away the issue of course collisions, e.g. when two courses sharing a student are allocated at overlapping time slots, since the students are to ensure by themselves that their courses do not overlap. The problem was rst considered in the masters' thesis [1] and the project here is an extension of the work done in that thesis.
