MS&E 403: Integrative Modeling

Modeling approaches for examining real life problems: how to get started. Critical thinking in framing and problem formulation leading to actionable solutions and communication of results to decision makers. Models to identify and evaluate multiple objectives/metrics. Models examined include both deterministic and probabilistic components. Overview of optimization and probability, decomposition principles to model large scale problems, appropriate integration of uncertainties into model formulations. Primarily team-project based assignments, with three to four group projects. Project topics drawn from applications with real data. Sample project topics include: optimizing group phone plans for large corporations, life insurance business models, making sense of the health care debate, logistic decision problems. Project teams will critically grade other teams¿ project reports using provided guidelines. Project presentations throughout the quarter. Prerequisites: 211, 220.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

MS&E 431: Projects in Computational Social Science

Students work in interdisciplinary teams to complete a project of their choice in computational social science. Groups present their progress throughout the term, receiving regular feedback on their own projects and providing feedback on other students' projects. Students learn how to deal with the computational and statistical challenges of working with large, real-world datasets in the context of a motivating, substantive problem in the social sciences. Lectures and discussions are tailored to the specific topics that the groups pursue. Enrollment is by application only; details will be posted in the fall quarter. Prerequisite: MS&E 231 or similar.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3-4 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

MS&E 441: Policy and Economics Research Roundtable (PERR)

Research in progress or contemplated in policy and economics areas. Emphasis depends on research interests of participants, but is likely to include energy, environment, transportation, or technology policy and analysis. May be repeated for credit.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 1 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit

MS&E 442: Energy Efficiency: Technology, Policy, and Investment (PUBLPOL 342)

Provide students with a basic understanding of the technologies, policies, and investments behind energy efficiency. Explores each of these dimensions, and their interplay, through structured lectures and expert perspectives from leading professionals and practitioners. The seminar will first survey energy efficiency historically, reviewing technology and policy development, funding support, accomplishments at the state and federal levels, and key stakeholders. The second part of the seminar will focus on innovation in energy efficiency, including its role in climate change. Three areas are anticipated for study: new technologies and energy efficiency's role in the changing grid, new policies and the use of data analytics, and new entrants and investment strategies. Limited to 15 students.
Terms: Spr | Units: 1 | Grading: Satisfactory/No Credit
Instructors: Sweeney, J. (PI)

MS&E 445: Projects in Wealth Management
