Coursera: Solving Algorithms for Discrete Optimisation (English Version)

25 May, 2018
Have you ever planned the seating for a wedding, organized a roster, or completed a Sudoku puzzle? If so, you have solved a discrete optimization problem. These problems are ubiquitous in business and our daily lives, but solving them well is often very challenging.  

This promotional video introduces the third course in a series of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) now available on Coursera: Solving Algorithms for Discrete Optimization ( that will help you learn how to solve such problems with ease. The course uses a unique pedagogy where the learning is woven around famous Chinese fables, “The Book of Mountains and Seas” and The Investiture of the Gods” and “Journey to the West”. This course is also available wholly in Chinese (, and has been developed in a unique collaboration between The Chinese University of Hong Kong and The University of Melbourne, and will form part of a four course Specialization on Modeling for Discrete Optimization.
