This study aimed to design a microcontroller-based programmable school timer. Specifically, the study sought to answer questions relating to: (a) automation, manipulation, and operation of the device, and (b) capability of the device to set shortened and adjusted periods.

The study employed a two phase evaluation namely: (a) experimental development for the device's experimentation and testing and (b) descriptive method for the assessment of the device's functionality.

Findings showed acceptable ratings in terms of the device's capability of indicating accurate time and manual setting of class schedules' specific periods.
