Students taking this online course, will learn to specify and implement optimization models that solve network problems (what is the shortest path through a network, what is the least cost way to route material through a network with multiple supply nodes and multiple demand nodes).  Students will also learn how to solve Integer Programming (IP) problems (constrained optimization problems except with one or more decision variable constrained to be an integer: e.g. a firm setting up a wi-fi hotspot could use 2 routers or 3 routers, but not 2.5 routers), and Nonlinear Programming (NLP) problems (where the objective function and constraints are not linear functions of the decision variables.  Students will use spreadsheet-based software to specify and implement models.
