Inspiration: For the current freshman class, BU implemented a new system for their general education requirements which is called "The Hub". It revolves around taking courses within 6 "Essential Capacities" organized by this chart: link. Many of the current freshman class find the requirements for The Hub unintuitive and have trouble deciding which classes to take in order to efficiently fulfill all the requirements. Our project aims to help these students and after they input their major and which AP credits they received, provide them with a personalized list <<<<<<< HEAD of classes which they may take throughout their time at BU which will ensure that the Hub is fulfilled.
What We Did: 1) We scraped various BU pages to fetch class data for all the courses that fulfill Hub requirements. 2) We then wrote an algorithm to generate a greedy strategy to search for classes. 3) Then we built the UI for the app.
