Courses

Introduction to transportation systems

The course provides an introduction to the design and analysis of transportation systems for the mobility of people and goods.

Introduction to optimization and operations research

Introduction to major operations research models and optimization algorithms

Mathematical modelling of behavior

Discrete choice models allow for the analysis and prediction of individuals' choice behavior. The objective of the course is to introduce both methodological and applied aspects, in the field of marketing, transportation, and finance.

Optimization and simulation

Master state-of-the art methods in optimization with heuristics and simulation. Work involves: - reading the material beforehand - class hours to discuss the material and solve problems - homework

Winter School on Optimization and Operations Research (I)

The objective of the Winter School is to expose the audience to modern topics on Optimization and Operations Research. Every year, two prominent researchers are invited to provide tutorials on selected topics, and to discuss some of their recent research with the students.

Chantier urbain : perception, gouvernance, usages

This week ENAC aims to apprehend urban construction sites as key moments in the territorial fabric, in the articulation between urban planning and the effective implementation of a vision for the territory.
