Master of Science in Operations Research
Total: 32 semester hours
- This program will provide training in the basic techniques and theory of operations research and their applications to real-world problems. Graduates should have developed their analytical skills to attack complex, large-scale optimization problems of both a deterministic and stochastic nature. Eight 4-semester-hour graduate courses are required for this degree. To qualify for the degree, a minimum cumulative average of 3.000, equivalent to a grade of B, must be obtained. Some courses listed for this program are offered in the Department of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering.
- Required courses:
Four core courses: Probability 1 or Engineering Probability and Statistics, Probability 2 or Probabilistic Operations Research, Deterministic Operations Research, Optimization. Four elective courses from the following list: Mathematical Statistics, Enumeration, Data structures, Stochastic Calculus and No-arbitrage Finance, Statistical decisions, Complexity Theory, Economic Decision Making, Multi-criteria Decision Making, Logistics, Warehousing and Scheduling, Reliability and Risk Assessment.
