Importance of Operations Research in Computer Science

How is operations research useful for a computer science student?
I am being offered as an elective at my college and had to decide whether to take it or not.

@jaskaran_1 : you can read what Operations Research is at :

It is a very useful subject to study .

However if it is pitted against Data Mining , Artificial Intelligence , then these are more core to computer science .

I would strongly recommend doing Operations Research course if you are choosing it against less important/relevant courses .
