Science and Technology Management: Education in Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Logistics focuses on the transportation and storage of goods to ensure their timely delivery to the consumer. Logistics professionals possess expertise in fleet management, warehousing, transportation economics, international trade, and communications. To meet the growing needs of major global industries, this program's focus on logistics will train you to combine data-driven analysis with business know-how so that you can always deliver. Similarly, supply chain management covers all aspects of the life cycle of raw materials as they are converted into finished goods and delivered to the consumer. Supply chain managers and engineers oversee the sourcing, production, procurement, storage, and delivery of materials and goods, always striving to conserve energy and commodities for maximum efficiency. The focus on logistics and supply chain management in the Science and Technology Management program will give you hands-on experience in analyzing supply chain efficiency across industries, developing systems integration technology, and working side-by-side with business leaders to ensure that no matter the challenge, you can always meet demand.
