Applied Operations Research
The Graduate Certificate in Applied Operations Research is designed to prepare individuals with an overview of Operations Research (OR) tools, develop competence in modeling programs and provide practice and hands-on experience. OR models and solution techniques provide a powerful arsenal for solving complex resource allocation and management problems. 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.
