# Learning outcomes

** **

**1: Theory and application of operations research**

The curriculum is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in the theory and application of optimization, stochastic process, simulation, and decision analysis, and requires that students have demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of these concepts.

**2: Theory and application of statistics**

Students have learned to perform appropriate collection, modeling, and analysis of the data using statistical methods. This includes understanding the assumptions associated with the procedures and how to determine the appropriate procedure to use.

**3: Theory and application of biomathematics**

The curriculum is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in the theory and application of biomathematics, and requires that students have demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of these concepts.

**4: Modeling of systems**

Students have demonstrated the ability to identify situations in which mathematics, operations research, or statistics can be applied and model the situation.

**5: Use of software used in applications**

Students have demonstrated the ability to solve a wide variety of mathematics, operations research, or statistics problems using the software commonly used in industry.

**6: Programming for research**

Students have demonstrated the ability to write code using appropriate research programming environments to implement their research ideas.

**7: Interpretation of model analysis**

The required courses have taught student how to interpret the analysis from mathematics, operations research, or statistics models to draw meaningful conclusions about the systems they are studying.

**8: Written communication**

Students have demonstrated the ability to successfully communicate their research ideas through their writing.

**9: Oral communication**

The curriculum has taught students to successfully communicate their research ideas through presentations.

**10: Independent research**

Students have learned the skills needed to successfully participate in research under the guidance of the faculty.

**11: Theory and application of discrete mathematics**

The curriculum is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in the theory and application of discrete mathematics, and requires that students have demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of these concepts.
