About

The Ph.D. in Operations Research program is rigorous academically, demanding independent investigation and achievement and characterizes original scholarly work of the highest caliber. The Operations Research program is offered by Cornell University.

Overview

Education

  • Doctoral students majoring in operations research concentrate in one of three areas. Doctoral students also select two minor subjects for the Ph.D. degree, one of which must be outside the field. 
  • A minor may be in operations research or in a subject offered in another field, such as computer science, econometrics and economic statistics, environmental systems engineering, managerial economics, mathematics, or planning theory and systems analysis.
  • In addition to the examinations required by the Graduate School, the field requires a qualifying examination for Ph.D. degree candidates, normally taken in the third term of graduate study at Cornell. 
The Operations Research program is offered by Cornell University.

Programme Structure

  • Applied probability and statistics stresses the techniques and associated underlying theory of probability and statistics, particularly as applied to problems in science, finance, and engineering. 
  • Manufacturing systems engineering is concerned with the analysis and design of complex manufacturing and distribution systems. Problems studied include the establishment of inventory-control policies in multistage production and distribution systems; design of manufacturing plants with optimal amounts of equipment and optimal materials-handling systems; planning and scheduling of production in large-scale, multi-item, multilocation systems; and economic analysis of engineering processes. 
  • Mathematical programming concentrates on optimization, including linear, nonlinear, integer, and combinatorial programming; network flows; problems of scheduling and sequencing; and discrete and computational geometry.
