UU6462002: BACHELOR OF SCIENCE WITH HONOURS (DECISION SCIENCE)

Description

Students will use modelling and prediction, then turn both masses of everyday information, and more specialized quantitative and qualitative data, into actionable insights. By using mathematical models and analytical reasoning, students able to examine problems in areas such as operations and supply chain management, information technology, marketing, finance, management, manufacturing, and economics. Students will learn how to solve these problems by using a number of mathematical techniques, including optimization methods (linear, integer, nonlinear), computer simulation, decision analysis, artificial intelligence, data-mining, and more.  

Aims

The aim of this programme is to produce graduates who possess in depth knowledge and skills for scientific decision making; possess sufficient knowledge in integrating other field areas such as economy, management, education and others, as well as having in-depth knowledge in Mathematics, Statistics, Decision Science/ Operational Research, and Information and Communication Technology (ICT); and are able to construct models and analyse them accordingly.

Learning Outcome

  • Explain the concepts of quantitative knowledge of mathematics, statistics, operational research and information and communication technology (ICT) towards good decisions.
  • Apply the concepts to model and to provide solutions to the real world and hypothetical problems.
  • Integrate and synthesize organisational issues, and evaluate potential solutions in the broader context of the organisation or society.
  • Carry out professional and ethical responsibility.
  • Communicate effectively orally, graphically and in writing, and function in culturally -diverse, gender-diverse and multi-disciplinary teams.
  • Use quantitative techniques, modelling skills and contemporary decision science tools for industries, public institution and society.
