This paper describes three actual applications of decision science techniques in solving education and administration problems at Universiti Utara Malaysia. They are the assignment of group projects to students, the determination of the most suitable candidate for student excellence award, and budget allocation for student activities. For each application, the problem environment is given followed by the description of the technique used to solve the problem. It is hoped that with these simple illustrations those who are unfamiliar with decision science will be aware of its great potential in solving managerial problems.
