The courses introduce the students to the basics in production planning, control and optimisation which are important tools in the development of more material, energy and cost efficient processes.

The course Optimering introduces students to the basics in optimisation, including the different problem classifications and algorithms to solve the problems. Multivariable control presents the basics of description and analysis of dynamic systems (incl. control systems), digital control and control of multivariable systems Data-analysis and machine learning teaches about classification, stochastic disturbances and fitting of models to data. Production optimization covers linear and non-linear mathematical programming with discrete and continuos variables.
