Combinatorial Optimization consists of finding an optimal-object from a finite object’s set where exhaustive search may not be feasible. Through this [course_title] you will be able to develop the best airline-network of spokes and destinations, decide which taxis in a fleet to route to pick up fares. This [course_title] will help you understand the topics like non-bipartite-matchings and cover many results extending the fundamental results of matchings, flows, and matroids.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

  • Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
