Optimization is a common form of decision making, and is ubiquitous in our society. Its applications range from solving Sudoku puzzles to arranging seating in a wedding banquet. The same technology can schedule planes and their crews, coordinate the production of steel, and organize the transportation of iron ore from the mines to the ports. Good decisions in manpower and material resources management also allow corporations to improve profit by millions of dollars. Similar problems also underpin much of our daily lives and are part of determining daily delivery routes for packages, making school timetables, and delivering power to our homes. Despite their fundamental importance, all of these problems are a nightmare to solve using traditional undergraduate computer science methods.

TOP REVIEWS FROM BASIC MODELING FOR DISCRETE OPTIMIZATION
Good teachers. They go gradually from very easy to challenging concepts. Also a good intro to the main optimization problems.
A very good course. Thank you to the teachers and Staff in general.
Compact introduction to the basics of specifying models in MiniZinc. Excellent starter kit, but you will fight a bit with the syntax of MiniZinc.
great course for beginners and those who are looking for applications of optimisation. the only problem is it forces you to work with minizinc and may consume extra time than expected
