Operations Research is the application of mathematical methods to decision-making, using modeling and optimization to solve problems with applications ranging from airport scheduling to identifying social networking communities.

This course will be project-driven with applications drawn from the transportation, manufacturing, medicine, and online communities, to name a few. Prerequisite: C- or above in MA 172 .
