Founded in 1958, the Canadian Operational Research Society (CORS) is an association of those interested in
the application of operational research (OR). Its primary goals are the dissemination of information
about OR and the encouragement of exchanges between OR professionals.
OR is a branch of applied mathematics that uses mathematical modelling, optimization, and other techniques to solve complex real-world problems arising, for example, in transportation planning and telecommunications.
CORS awards a diploma to students who have successfully completed a program with a significant operational research component. To apply, you must be a student (or full) member of CORS, and you must have achieved an acceptable average over at least seven OR courses. The first step is to contact the Diploma Coordinator for your university with your transcript.
