Training and Seminars

We specialize in training courses for the General Algebraic Modeling System (GAMS), a leading high-level system for mathematical programming and optimization.

  • Highly interactive courses with many examples and exercises throughout the curriculum
  • Custom GAMS model library with many examples and the exercise-solutions
  • Full-size course license covering GAMS and most solvers

On a regular basis we offer public introductory to mid-level courses on

Advanced Analytics: Modeling and Optimization with GAMS

Covers all important aspects needed for getting up and running with GAMS in only three days.

Energy and Power System Modeling in GAMS

Provides a two-day GAMS introduction and two days of Energy and Power System Modeling.
