Teaching Paradigm

Operations Research (OR) is the application of advanced analytical methods to make better decisions.  This field is very practical in its nature and a key focus of teaching OR at QUT is making direct ties to real-world applications.  Students are exposed to authentic industry projects through the Work-Integrated-Learning capstone unit in OR, gaining experience with stakeholder engagement, working as a project team within a compliance framework and delivering actionable outcomes.  Employers are looking for graduates that are industry ready and possessing advanced analytical skills.  With these attributes QUT's OR students are well positioned to embark on challenging and rewarding careers.
