This lecture series is designed for undergraduate and graduate students who have taken Operations Research and Optimization subjects, will be graduating or recently graduated, and would like to apply what they have learnt into practice. The lecture series begins with discussions on O.R. applications in industry and its challenges, and the rise of analytics which provides great opportunities for O.R. applications.

This lecture series focus is on the practical aspects of mathematical optimization which includes the use of ubiquitous Microsoft Excel. The importance of the ability to integrate and transform data from various sources will be discussed. Case studies of how real-world large problems are solved in industry will be shared, including the tools used by industry and the skill sets required. This lecture series concludes with tips on how to convert opportunities into small wins and eventually spread the use of O.R. in the organization.
