Logistics Engineering is an emerging engineering field dedicated to the optimal design and operations of a logistics system that involves the 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, enabling technology, and systems design techniques.
The Master of Science in Logistics Engineering (MSLE) program prepares students for a career in the logistics and supply chain management industry, by applying engineering concepts and tools to:
- Model, analyze, design, and implement a logistics system
- Address emerging challenges in the logistics industry with respect to design and development of new logistics technology and application
- Operate, improve, and optimize a logistics system or supply chain network
The MSLE program curriculum has been expertly curated by top faculty and advised by high-level industry executives to prepare program graduates for success in their logistics engineering and supply chain careers. Graduates can expect to have the following career outlooks: Logistics Engineer, Supply Chain Optimization Designer, Product & Inventory Controller, Engineering Data Analyst, Forecast & Demand Management Manager, Logistics & Supply Chain Manager, and Procurement Manager.
