Learning outcomes

Mathematics for decisions is a seminar course comprising:
+ interventions by external professors (seminars, mini-courses);
+ interventions by professionals (statements of problems from the applications, description of needs and/or projects);
+ interventions by the referent of the course, collaborators of him,
or colleagues by the department (both classes and proposal of problems and projects from the applications).
+ presentations delivered by the students on arguments of their interests and as agreed upon (seminars).
The aim of this offert is to provide the studens with opportunities to meet and/or get involved into working or research projects, activating and developing their own interests, motivations and talents.

Among the targets of this offert:
+ provide the students with opportunities to get in touch with working and/or research environments, developing motivations, interests, attitudes;
+ allow connections with professionalities and disciplines, not necessarily within mathematics but that can motivate the work of a matematician or help appreciating its possible applicability;
+ stimulate and develope the competence in designing mathematical models for the managing of production facilities, networks, and services;
+ provide the students with occasions to experiment their computational and informatics skills and to become more aware of their impact and role.

With this the aim is to lead our students to:
+ have the competence and attitude to cover technical and professional roles with an high-level modellistic-math profile;
+ have the necessary starting background and the attitude to document themselves by accessing math texts, research articles, project deliverables, technical documentation.

Program

"Mathematics for decisions" is a container of didactic offerts, minicourses, seminars, and proposals of projects, problems and collaborations.
The preferential topics for our proposals will draw from the multidisciplinary tradition and practice of operations research: mathematical programming, logistics, optimization of production, combinatorial optimization, optimization on networks and graphs, game theory, linear programming (PL), integer linear programming (PLI).


During this academic year (2017/18) a core of classes and activities on PLI theory and practice will be proposed. These activities will start already in november.

Further proposals and activities will get determined only during the year, dynamically intercepting and accomodating occasions for collaborations and projects, incoming challenges, availabilities of tutors, researchers and professionists. We will do our best to keep an updated snapshot board of the proposals on the e-learning pages of the course.

Examination Methods

"Mathematics for decisions" is a container worth 6 credits and articulated in mini-courses, seminars, proposals of projects and collaborations. Each mini-course has its own rules, and, beyond attendance and participation, requires taking a final assessment and/or contemplates the possibility of conducting a project or delivering of a seminar.
In the final assignments the students are required to have the competence to produce coherent arguments, possibly even formal ones, and to solve small problems in the different fields or contexts proposed.
In the projects, the students are asked to produce mathematical models for problems expressed in languages from other disciplines or realities, scientific, managerial, economic.
Usually the project comprises a development phase (and possibly even an experimental one) where the student must exhibit his technical and informatics skills in implementing the models and the algorithms developed or adopted.
The seminars require only attendance, but most of the time have been designed with the purpouse of offering problems, challanges, and proposals for collaboration.

An internal system of credits (0.3 credits each attended seminar and class houer) is used in order to collect the various activities into one single pondered mark, but, considered the purpouse of the course, the student should pick up at least one commitment within a project and/or delivering a presentation of a topic. In fact, working out your own study and presentation, or taking an active part in some project, will easily come to saturating the credits besides meeting the highest aims of the "Mathematics for decisions" proposal and (we hope) opportunity.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!


Alternative learning activities

In order to make the study path more flexible, it is possible to request the substitution of some modules with others of the same course of study in Mathematics at the University of Verona (if the educational objectives of the modules to be substituted have already been achieved in the previous career), or with others of the course of study in Mathematics at the University of Trento.
