Competencies / intended learning achievements
Upon successful completion of this module, the students have acquired a good overview on the established methods to solve planar location problems. These planar location problems are of particular importance for various applications in industry and society. The sudents have learned to classify the problems and to critically evaluate the possibilities and limitations of algorithms. They have been introduced to current research topics.
By completing the given exercises, the students have developed a skilled, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and techniques taught in the lecture. Moreover, they have learnt how to apply these techniques to new problems, analyze them and develop solution strategies.
