Welcome to Management Sciences at the University of Waterloo

Management Sciences is an academic department within the Faculty of Engineering that offers an undergraduate Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc) degree in management engineering, an undergraduate option in management sciences, and both research and course-based graduate degree programs. 

Management Sciences is a broad interdisciplinary study of problem solving and decision making in organizations. It uses a combination of analytical models, data science, and behavioural sciences to address societies' most complex problems.

Conducting meaningful research that will impact industries and economies, our students and faculty work under three core areas of specialization: applied operations research, information systems, and management of technology. 

  1. June 20, 2017Management Engineers honoured with awards at 2017 convocation

    Forty-nine Management Engineers were conferred their degrees at last Saturday’s convocation. Two students from the 2017 Management Engineering graduating class were also honoured with two of the faculty’s most prestigious awards for undergraduate students.

    Anne Dawson was awarded the Alumni Gold Medal, which is given to one graduating student from each faculty. In the case of Engineering, this award is based on both outstanding academic performance and contributions to the faculty.

    Research on help-seeking and help-giving conducted by Management Sciences alum Mahdi Roghanizad during his PhD studies was recently featured in the Harvard Business Review.

  3. June 5, 2017Smart metres yield small decrease in electricity use

    In a recent study, a team of researchers led by Management Sciences professor Lukasz Golab found that the implementation of smart metres in Ontario has resulted in only a small decrease in energy usage during on-peak and mid-peak hours. The findings were recently published in the Energy Policy journal.

    Clinton Moss

    President, Marksman Ranging Technologies, Scientific Drilling

    Abstract

    Precession drilling and wellbore placement techniques have yielded significant improvements in oil and gas extraction but in Canada they have not yet been utilized to improve the technical and economic feasibility of deep geothermal energy systems. This talk will review the state of the art in precision directional drilling and discuss how these techniques may decrease the capital cost and increase the operating efficiency of deep geothermal systems in the Canada.
