Course Description:

This course is an introductory course designed for computer science student. The course covers a brief history of operations research and some major models in OR. The main subjects covered in the course are: the graphical solution of linear programs, the algebraic solution of linear programs, transportation problems, assignment problems, shortest path problem, minimal spanning tree, decision making under risk, decision making under uncertainty and the basic queueing model.

Lectures of the course are thought using Power Point slides (in ِArabic). Slides of the lectures are available in my website. Therefore, every student must have the slides of the subject with hem during the lecture. Also, the subjects are presented in an interactive way so every student is required to participate during the lecture.



All students must attend the lectures. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each lecture. Any student fail to attend 25% of the course will not be allowed to take the final exam according to the university policy.



The final grade in the course is calculated according to the following distribution:

  • Homework and Tutorial            10%
  • Midterm-I                                20%
  • Midterm-II                               20%
  • Final Exam                               50%

Attendance, participation and quizzes are also counted toward the final grading as a bonus in the course. Each takes about 10 minutes. The quizzes dates will not be announced. Normally, a quiz covers the materials presented in the same day of the quiz.
