Overview

Key facts

The Optimization degree offered by the University of Bergen is offered at the University of Bergen.

Companies in Bergen and the rest of Norway optimize: Manufacturers maximize their profit and minimize the costs of their production processes. Transporters seek to find the fastest driving routes. Investors try to compose portfolios with low risks and high expected returns. Ship brokers engage underwriters to create insurances with a smallest possible premium.

Only good optimizers can optimize well, and only well-designed computer algorithms can do the heavy calculations required in challenging optimization processes.
