Exceptional coverage of optimization fundamentals. Learning of practical applied methods. Real university level course, no water down "data science". Absolutely love it! Thank you professor Pascal.
Great course, the teacher is very clear and often goes into sufficient depth for the student to understand concepts.\n\nAssignments are challenging and help understanding course content.

This course taught me many different approaches of discrete optimization such as local search models. In addition, it developed that I code in Python a algorithm which I designed.

I love it so much. Rather challenging , but excellent as it is clear and pushes you to improve in the fields you need (maths, modelization , programming, algorithms)

Well-defined course and interesting lecturer. He's highly engaging although the material of the course is pretty technical. Thanks a lot for making this course!!!!
Very good course for operation research aspirants. Assignments are very good to understand the problems and the complexity of the problems.Thanks to the team

Awesome course, learned a lot for solving NP hard problem. It could be hard for people without basic algorithm and data structure background.

Ótimo curso, descontraído e projetado para facilitar. Material relevante que serve como introdução a mais estudos.
By Sourav B•
This was more than introduction for me. Loved every second for me, got grades, but will try to improve obviously.
This hard course really deserves 5.0. The Prof. is great and also the assignment is challenging. Love it.
By Ole K•
I learned a lot in this course and it's definitely well managed and well taught by an amazing professor.
By Samuel B•
Best course I've taken on Coursera so far. Really challenges you to learn and apply algorithms/solvers.
