The Academic Planning Environment (APE) expert system project is a knowledge-based system for the advising and assistance of university students in the planning of their studies towards an academic degree. This system has been implemented for and tested at the Bar Ilan University. It has the capability of planning a program of courses which meets the student's remaining degree requirements and is sensitive to his preferences and strengths. It is able to give correct advice on prerequisites, exemptions, and the like. The system will interactively suggest alternatives, verify and accept the student's requests, and schedule the desired courses.
