Students taking this unit will have an opportunity to see how decision-making problems in industry, business, and civic services can be solved using modern mathematical and algorithmic techniques. Students will learn how to make better decisions through mathematical methods in optimization problems such as: production planning, machine scheduling, robotics/vehicle routing, network design, and resource allocation. Techniques covered include linear and integer models as well as game theory models. Four assignments will be offered, out of which students may choose two that suit their own areas of interest.
