Applied Operations Research

Program Description:

Operations research (OR) models and solution techniques provide a powerful arsenal for solving complex resource allocation and management problems. For instance, OR has been used to solve many of the scheduling, distribution, staffing, and design problems in industry. As more powerful desktop computers and software become available, the potential to apply OR models and methods to such problems will grow. This graduate certificate program gives students a good overview of OR tools, develops competence in modeling programs, and provides practice and hands-on experience with OR tools.
