We are pleased to invite you to attend the Department of Management Sciences seminar series in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo!

Our seminar series often accommodates a variety of talks such as research-oriented, Ph.D. student, and practitioner-oriented talks. Topics in the series include, among other, energy systems, optimisation, logistics and supply chain, healthcare, information and communications technologies, and socio-technical systems.

The audience, usually 15-25 in size, is primarily composed of faculty and graduate students from the Department of Management Sciences, although other faculty, students and industrial professionals frequently attend.

Visit our Events page for a full listing of upcoming seminars, and details. 

The department seminar series' coordinator is Kejia Zhu.
