Master of Operations Research

Course Description

Invest in your future

The modern world depends on instant, seamless communications systems to meet consumer expectations. Therefore, an ongoing demand exists both in the public and private sectors for professionals with advanced planning, analysis and research abilities.

The Master of Operations Research (MOR) equips students with high level skills in network design simulations, dynamic programming, mathematical modelling and more. This interdisciplinary field adopts techniques from engineering, mathematics, economics, and science, making your qualification a challenging, yet enriching one. Offered jointly by the Faculties of Engineering and Science, you will engage with a broad range of experts, perform rigorous analysis, and solve complex real-world problems.

The core aim of operations research is to optimise solutions, minimise risk and help organisations run more efficiently. This means that your research and methodological competencies will be an asset in our technologically-driven day-to-day environments, where there are increasing employment opportunities for those with skills in operations research.

Programme Structure

Research (120 points)
Full-time or part-time

You must successfully complete a 120 point research thesis to achieve the MOR. Within the course of this programme, you will develop a high level of competency in independent research, which can be an inspirational introduction to further study in our doctoral programme. The MOR is open to students with undergraduate backgrounds in arts, commerce, engineering or science, so you’ll be exposed to a broad range of applicable knowledge while remaining engaged with core techniques and methodology.
