Operations Research Honours
This program prepares students for careers in industry or a variety of graduate and professional programs.
Prerequisite Grade Requirement
To enroll in a course offered by the Department of Mathematics, a student must obtain a grade of C or better in each prerequisite course. Some courses may require higher prerequisite grades. Check the MATH course’s Calendar description for details.
Students will not normally be permitted to enroll in any course for which a D grade or lower was obtained in any prerequisite. No student may complete, for further credit, any course offered by the Department of Mathematics which is a prerequisite for a course the student has already completed with a grade of C or higher, without permission of the department.
Program Requirements
The program requires the completion of 120 units. The Faculty of Science stipulates that a minimum of 48 units must be in upper division, and that additional upper division units will be required to total a minimum of 60.
The specific requirements for this particular program are divided into three parts: required lower division courses, required upper division courses, and completion of an interdisciplinary requirement.
In addition to the program requirements set out below, general university regulations must be met.
A minimum program 3.00 cumulative grade point average (CGPA) must be obtained on the overall major program requirements, as well as a minimum program 3.00 grade point average in the upper division major courses.
Lower Division Requirements
Students complete
both of
An elementary introduction to computing science and computer programming, suitable for students with little or no programming background. Students will learn fundamental concepts and terminology of computing science, acquire elementary skills for programming in a highlevel language and be exposed to diverse fields within, and applications of computing science. Topics will include: pseudocode, data types and control structures, fundamental algorithms, computability and complexity, computer architecture, and history of computing science. Treatment is informal and programming is presented as a problemsolving tool. Prerequisite: BC Math 12 or equivalent is recommended. Students with credit for CMPT 102, 128, 130 or 166 may not take this course for further credit. Students who have taken CMPT 125, 129, 130 or 135 first may not then take this course for further credit. Quantitative/BreadthScience.

Any upper division STAT course except for STAT 302, STAT 305, and STAT 403
To complete the required 48 upper division units, students complete additional coursework, of which at least two courses must be 400level MATH or MACM courses with the possibility of substituting a 400level course from another department subject to advisor approval. Courses used to fulfil this upper division requirement cannot be used to satisfy the interdisciplinary requirement. All courses pertaining to the required 48 upper division units must be approved by the program advisor in the Department of Mathematics.
NOTE: SFU students enrolled in the Accelerated Master's degree program within the Department of Mathematics may apply a maximum of 10 graduate course units, taken while completing the bachelor's degree, towards the upper division undergraduate electives of the bachelor's program and the requirements of the master's degree. For more information go to: http://www.sfu.ca/deangradstudies/future/academicprograms/AcceleratedMasters.html.
Interdisciplinary Requirement
With advisor approval, students also complete at least 15 units from application areas. Application courses are chosen from ACMA, BUEC, BUS, CMPT, ECON, MACM, MATH, REM and STAT courses. Courses used to fulfil upper division requirements cannot be used to fulfil this requirement. If the operations research honours is completed as part of a second bachelor's degree, then the interdisciplinary requirement may be waived if the previous degree contains an approved major. Approvals are given individually. Those majors that are approved will not be limited to the disciplines listed above.
University Honours Degree Requirements
Students must also satisfy University degree requirements for degree completion.
Writing, Quantitative, and Breadth Requirements
Students admitted to Simon Fraser University beginning in the fall 2006 term must meet writing, quantitative and breadth requirements as part of any degree program they may undertake. See Writing, Quantitative, and Breadth Requirements for universitywide information.

Residency Requirements and Transfer Credit
 At least half of the program's total units must be earned through Simon Fraser University study.
 At least two thirds of the program's total upper division units must be earned through Simon Fraser University study.
Elective Courses
In addition to the courses listed above, students should consult an academic advisor to plan the remaining required elective courses.
