GAINESVILLE, FL: In an effort to remain among the nation’s elite programs, the UF Industrial & Systems Engineering Department will affirm its commitment to analytical methods, which has long been one of the department’s key strengths. The move will adjust Operations Research One and Two from three credit to four credit courses, placing new emphasis on Optimization Modeling, Nonlinear Programming, Poisson Processes, and Brownian Motion. Additionally, there are changes to the Facilities Planning and Work Design sequence, the Senior Design program, and Practical Work Experience requirements.
The changes are scheduled to go into effect Fall 2013. More information on the details of the changes, including for current students, is available here.
