Operational Research

Grigorios Beligiannis - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Business Administration of Food and Agricultural Enterprises, University of Patras

The course covers in depth the issue of decision making in business environment and the role of Operational Research. Extensive description and analysis of the theory and practice of dealing with decision-making problems in a business environment is performed. Modeling and solving of linear programming problems (LP) is presented and analyzed. The simplex method is described and presented in detail as well as many special cases of LP problems.

natural sciences subject

Environmental Geology

Ierotheos Zacharias - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Environmental and Natural Resources Management, University of Patras

Technical geological information is required for all geo-environmental site investigations, ranging from designing foundations to assessing contaminated land. In the developed and developing world, large areas of derelict industrial land are now being remediated for other uses, and in such areas site investigation demands the integration of both geotechnical and geo-environmental skills. Additionally, environmental protection and sustainable development now underpins legislation in most countries. Typically, individual projects involve elements of geotechnics, ground contamination and environmental assessment. Environmental Geology is focused on providing students with skills appropriate to a career with geo-engineering and geo-environmental consultancies, with regulatory authorities and government.

Topics in Mobile and Wireless Networks

Evi Papaioannou - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Cultural Heritage Management and New Technologies, University of Patras

Wireless and mobile communication networks critically affect almost every aspect of modern economic (e.g., electronic commerce), political (e.g., elections) and social life (e.g., contemporary social networks), i.e., our culture. In the context of this course we address mobile and wireless networks, such as cellular, ad hoc, wireless sensor networks (WSN). We study their fundamental characteristics together with issues related to their efficient design with emphasis on algorithmic aspects of topology control and efficient management of critical resources (such as energy and frequency spectrum). We present applications and effects of mobile and wireless networks in cultural heritage management. We study and review modern mobile technologies placing emphasis on the design and development of mobile web and augmented reality applications.
