Abstract: There are many problems in university timetabling derived from various limitations and constraints. Theycomprise congruence and relation among group of students, subjects, lecturers, rooms, periods and time space.Genetic Algorithm (GA) was applied to deal with these problems. This paper shows the innovation of GA operator inlevel of elements. Fitness functions of chromosomes, GA operators (crossover and mutation) are run through theprocess of this development. Appropriate value testing to search for the most effective point was conducted undervariation of proportion between crossover and mutation. The result of this research displayed that the givenappropriate value of crossover 93% and mutation 7% of GA operator is the best rate to resolve the problem ofuniversity timetabling.
