For Students

Netherlands United_Kingdom

As CHOIR researchers, we teach several courses on Operations Management and Operations Research in health care. For the master program “Industrial Engineering & Management”, where the focus is on OM and OR, health care is an important application domain. Within the bachelor program “Gezondheidswetenschappen” and the master program “Health Sciences”, we teach several courses on the basics of OM and the applications in health care. For an overview of the different courses, see below.

Besides teaching courses, we also supervise graduation projects of both bachelor and master students. We offer projects with different focus areas, suitable for students from among others Industrial Engineering, Applied Mathematics, and Health Sciences. For an overview of recent studies, click here.
