The efficiency in the academic and administrative procedures of higher education clearly marks competitive advantage in aspects of quality, which consists in the continuous improvement and improvement for the achievement of educational objectives. In our institution, the syllabus treatment is currently carried out manually, delaying many educational processes. Therefore, it is proposed to innovate through a software architecture approach based on the standard "ISO/IEC/ IEEE 42010: Systems and software engineering-Architecture Description" to describe the architecture Syllabus Management System software. It is developed in three stages: Analysis, Design and Verification. This will allow professors to develop their research, training, teaching and presentation of timely reports, with the measurement of achieved skills and abilities of students, managers and academic authorities, and to make decisions based on the results obtained by the tool allowing an improvement in the quality of the contents and development flow of the syllabus.
