Minor Title  Minor in Operations Research & Mathematical Programming  

Offered to students admitted to Year 1 in  20172018  
Objectives: The Minor in Operations Research & Mathematical Programming provides students with fundamental knowledge in optimization, computational algorithm, mathematical modeling, and decision making. It is specifically designed for students who are interested in the above subjects and those whose majors require sophisticated mathematical skills. It aims to nurture quantitative reasoning, logical, analytical and critical thinking, innovative imagination, meticulous care to work, ability to conceptualize, skills for problemsolving and skills to tackle novel situations and illdefined problems. It is particularly useful for solving mathematical problems arising from decision sciences and logistic industry. 

Learning Outcomes: By the end of this programme, students should be able to:
 
Impermissible Combination: Major in Mathematics 



Notes: 1. Double counting of credits is not permissible for majorminor or doubleminors combinations. For a course appears as a core course ("disciplinary core") in the majorminor or doubleminors, students have to make up the credits by taking replacement course in the minor. For details, please refer to "Students taking double Majors, MajorMinor or double Minors with overlapping course requirements" in the BSc syllabuses. 

Remarks: Important! Ultimate responsibility rests with students to ensure that the required prerequisites and corequisite of selected courses are fulfilled. Students must take and pass all required courses in the
selected primary science major
in order to satisfy the degree graduation requirements.
