We present experimental results of solving mathematical models, using very efficient complete and incomplete techniques, for designing balanced academic curricula. Solutions to these models give curricula with academic load for each period as similar as possible. Based on this work, a software tool has been developed to help administratives as well as students in the planning of academic curricula.
