Overview

Academic Objective: Development and application of optimization models and solution methods; focus on quantitative modeling and formulation of linear, integer, and network flow problems; use of computer optimization software to model and solve real-life problems. At the end of the course, students should be able to (i) consider real-world problems and determine whether linear programming is an appropriate modeling framework; (ii) develop linear, integer, and network flow models that consider the key elements of the real world problem; (iii) solve the models for their optimal solutions; and (iv) interpret the models solutions and infer solutions to the real-world problems.

International enhancement: The learning of these concepts will take place in a different cultural frame of reference, which will expose the students to different ways in which people live their life and engineers practice the profession. Like many other countries, Peru is a land of contrasts. As a result, customs and traditions, food and dances, are discernibly different in the different parts of the country. In Peru, a fraction of the population has been directly or indirectly exposed to the western culture (i.e., US and Europe), while a majority has only been marginally exposed to it. Although this situation is undesirable, it is a fact. In Lima, the students will be exposed to the first group; whereas, in Cuzco, more of the second group will be observed. This exposure to a different cultural frame of reference will give the students elements to discriminate better between global and local, as well as between natural and social principles and beliefs. Students will be exposed to these cultural differences through day or multi-day technical/cultural excursions within and/or outside the Lima region.

One of the technical/cultural trips will consist of visiting Cuzco and Machu Picchu. Cuzco is at 11,200 feet above sea level, and Macchu Picchu, at 8,000.
