This course studies modeling of real problems in operations research. Students exercise on real problems by using modeling language. In the final group work, they need to find a real problem, which can be solved by applying operations research, and they give a oral presentation of the results.
By the end of this course, students will:
1. Have acquired fundamental skills of modeling
2. Be able to write simple programs for modeling language.
3. Have gained experience in project management involving planning, scheduling, and control
4. Have developed communication and presentation skills
