Master of Science in Logistics Engineering
Logistics Engineering is an emerging engineering field dedicated to an optimal design and operations of a logistics system that involves in forecast, procurement, transport, production, storage, distribution, and warehousing of materials and finished goods. It involves design and integration of material, information, and money flows throughout the supply chain in order to best support the goals of the organization. A logistics engineer needs to have in-depth knowledge of logistics operations, technology, and systems design techniques.
The MS program in Logistics Engineering requires 30 credit hours of 10 coursework from three clusters of graduate courses. The first consists of 4 core courses in logistics operations, the second consists of 3 elective courses in systems engineering, and the third consists of 3 elective courses in logistics systems and technology.
- Cluster 1: Logistics Engineering (Select all four, 12 credits)
- Cluster 2: Systems Engineering electives (Select 3 courses, 9 credit hours)
- Cluster 3: Logistics Systems and Technology electives (take 3 courses, 9 credit hours)
The applicant to the MS program in Logistics Engineering must have a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering, systems engineering, operations research, or a closely related area such as business administration, MIS, or other engineering disciplines, from a regionally accredited institution with a minimum of “B” average in upper-level undergraduate work, or a graduate degree from an accredited institution. In addition, international graduate student applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit a score for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). A total score of 80 on the iBT TOEFL or 6.5 overall on the IELTS is required.
Grades and Credits
Students are required to maintain a GPA of 3.0. Courses with a grade below ‘C’ will not be counted toward the Master of Science in Logistics Engineering.
