European Study on OR/MS Education:
Brief Results and Preliminary Trends
In the light of recent improvements in OR/MS Education, a survey was conducted amongst European universities and other higher education institutions (see https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/ORMSeducation ), from June to October 2015. The survey and related activities constituted the first phase of the “European Study on OR/MS Education”, being the study’s purpose to gain detailed insight into the current state of OR/MS Education in Europe.
Some results and preliminary trends are to be presented in OR/MS conferences, namely EURO 2016 (a summary(1) of the panel discussion is made available in the EU-Survey’s section for “Background Documents”) and KOI 2016. In sharing this way the relevant elements from the survey, a more general and broader discussion can be initiated both on future developments and on OR/MS Education enhancements.
