I am offering ISE794 next semester. It is a course on how to find a satisficing solution based on ambiguous human opinions, uncertain situations, and unreliable data. The syllabus is attached, and I will have the lecture notes ready for review. I call it the "touchy-feely" optimization, though the official course title is risk assessment.
At any rate, could you pass the syllabus to your students with similar research interest?
