This paper presents a proposal for the solution of the Timetabling Problems, through developing a heuristic based on a model VNS/VND, when applied to the courses of Information Systems, Systems Development, and Analysis at the University of the Espírito Santo. As a methodology, we selected two courses involving 7 classes, 37 disciplines and 21 teachers. The comparisons between the results of the manual and automated process demonstrates that the proposed method obtained a significant improvement in the quality of solution and the reduction of time required for the preparation of schedules.
