    In March 2007, the INFORMS Computing Society formed the ICS Education Committee, charged with outlining an undergraduate curriculum that would prepare students for graduate study and/or industrial work at the interface of operations research and computer science. The result is a set of essential and recommended skills that undergraduate students should seek to acquire in order to be successful in such endeavors. This article presents the findings of the committee.
