Algorithm and Optimisation


<p>The <i>« I410A – Algorithmique et optimisation »</i> activity, taught to
first year master students in computer science industrial engineer at the
<a href="">ECAM Brussels Engineering
School</a> (ECAM), is about <b>algorithm design and software
optimisation</b>. The course begins by explaining how to go from a problem
to an algorithm to solve it and then to a program that can be executed to
solve real instances of the problem.</p>

<p>I started to give this course in 2018 and I am currently giving it for
the third time. The course is taught in English, but all the material is
available in English and <a href="/fr/teaching/ecam/algopti/">in
