In this paper, computer software is designed for optimum scheduling of timetable for courses in educational institutions. This system uses Dynamic Slot Algorithm (DSA) with the application of Constraint Satisfaction Programming. The algorithm was transformed into a program using Microsoft Excel-visual basic for application (Excel-VBA). It has been used for the timetable of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Port Harcourt. Results obtained are better than those generated manually by the human timetabler as they show a much higher space and time utilization, apart from the great speed associated with computer productions.
