Operations Research Capstone Project...Stay Tuned

(Academics, Class of 2016) Permanent link   All Posts
Hirst Photo First semester of senior year is moving at a steady clip. During our senior year, most majors work on a capstone project, which encompasses the entire year’s worth of work. The cadets studying engineering are already well underway with their capstone projects. The majority of my friends are engineers, and they give me a hard time because as an Operations Research major, I haven’t started my project yet. Operations Research just received the capstone slate and we put in a dream sheet of the capstone we would like to work on. Most of the projects are Coast Guard applicable and our work will be put into place to help out the fleet. We have the opportunity to optimize flight scheduling or possibly plan out the best allocation of Coast Guard assets. There are endless opportunities with operations research in the Coast Guard! Most of my capstone work will occur next semester, so expect more information on that to come later! This semester is flying by…I can’t believe it’s already November!
