Many students do not manage to complete their higher education studies because they chose an university department whose curriculum consists of courses that are out of their interest. If the selection of their studies is done with more caution and knowledge might lead to better decision making. This paper presents a web-based decision support system which allows the student to indicate the degree of interest for courses in secondary education that they has been taught. The system, using the multicreteria analysis method ELECTRE, presents a possible, ranked based on student’s interests, university departments list.
