Operational Research in Engineering (ORE)

Operations Research (OR)

Introduction to models and methods of Operations Research. The special focus of this course is on practical skills. Students will learn fundamental modelling techniques and software tools used to solve decision and optimisation problems, among others mathematical programing, both linear and non-linear, Monte Carlo and discrete simulation, decision trees and useful decision models implemented in spreadsheets.

Many practical applications of Operations Research arising in management are presented in summer (spring) semester on the course Advanced Planning in Operations Management.
