Master of Science - Stochastic Systems and Optimization

Master of Science - Stochastic Systems and Optimization

The Master of Science in Stochastic Systems and Optimization program requires a total of 30 credits and focuses on analysis and optimal decision-making for complex systems involving uncertain data and risk.

The program includes courses in statistics, stochastic processes, stochastic optimization, and stochastic optimal control theory. Applications to financial systems, network design and routing, telecommunication systems, medicine, actuarial mathematics, and other areas are discussed. Students are encouraged to apply the techniques they learn to problems derived from their professional work and interests.
