Project UC with regular oral presentations during the semester. In COVID-19 pandemic context, it will an online course supported Zoom (synchronous sessions) and Moodle (asynchronous monitoring) platforms.
Evaluation activities and corresponding weights:
Classroom assignments (15%)
Final oral presentation (35%)
Final report (50%)
The final grade is computed as the closest integer to the weighted sum of the above activities. A student passes the course if the final grade is grater or equal to 10 points.
This is a course with a syllabus that can adpated to the student''''s academic profile. The syllabus will allow students to grasp the theoretical subjects that are relevant to solving real world problems, including modeling; linear, non-linear and integer optimizaition; heuristics, among others.
It provides students with the necessary skills to be able to carry out their Porjects, that will be some application of operations research to industry.
