Timetabling Systems

Timetabling and Examinations services use Scientia products which are mainly Enterprise Timetabler, Web Room Bookings, Web Timetables and Resource Booker as well as Exam Scheduler.

Timetabling and Examination systems are fed by Euclid and HR systems. Student, staff and courses information is transformed in Scientia applications into visible teaching, room and examinations timetables.

Timetabling and Examinations data is then shown in numerous university-wide systems and applications.
