Cognate Courses

Cognate courses are courses that are often included in OR programs of study, but which carry other departmental designations. They cover subject matter closely related to OR and provide additional insight into the theory or application of OR methodology. Students may include cognate courses in their programs of study without the consent of their faculty advisor. Students can take other non-cognate courses in their programs of study with the consent of their faculty advisor.
