90% of UWTSD students at the School of Engineering agreed that the library resources (e.g. books, online services and learning spaces) have supported their learning well – NSS 2017.

Logistics and Supply Chain Management is business management with a purpose. The purpose is to move the right goods from A to B in the right quantity, to the right place, at the right time, fit for purpose.

It needs people who will thrive when working in a challenging and fast moving environment. One thing is for sure, no two days are the same in the Logistics Industry. Logistics is a global industry with extensive opportunities to work around the world for example, at least three to four ERASMUS students from Europe join the final year of the BSc programme each year.

The programmes are designed to ensure that prospective and practising managers have a sound understanding of the operational, technical and personal aspects of the day-to-day management of all types of logistic operations, their facilities and infrastructure.   

During their studies students develop and enhance:

  • their powers of persuasion through the improvement of their oral and written communication skills;
