[IEOR E4007] Optimization

[IEOR E4007] Optimization

Garud is an amazing prof and there is a reason why he is the department chair. Guy can teach programming as well as algebra, statistics ( basically anything you throw at him ). He is frank, open and tries his best to ensure that nobody does really bad in his class. My major concern with the course was that while the first half was linear prog and a basic intro to convex optimization, the second half contained integer, Quadratic, non linear as well as dynamic and all of this was on the finals.

You can definitely take this but be prepared to spend 10 - 15 hours per week minimum easily if you wanna do well.

Pro tip: If you are focused on grades, make sure you put in tons of efforts for the midterm as 1, the finals seemed way too complicated wrt the midterm and 2, the syllabus for the finals seemed way too vast.

Workload:

Be prepared to shit amounts of work but a lot of learning
