Title: Project-Based Learning in Operations Research and Sustainability
Abstract: Operations research (O.R.) is playing an increasingly important role in addressing sustainability challenges such as green-house gas reduction and renewable energy use. In this talk, quantitative sustainability projects that can be utilized in undergraduate courses are described using the lens of descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics recently espoused by the O.R. community.
