Supply Chain Engineering and Management: What is it all about?

The worldwide exchange of goods, the mobility of humans and the constant flow of information and ideas requires expertise about transport chains and how exchange processes work, what design options are available and the ability to develop new methods to meet future challenges. Organizations and management of modern logistic networks demand professional staff. The necessary knowledge reaches far beyond mere logistics or management knowledge. It requires personalities that do not only operate, but have a desire to be responsible and engage in shaping, in engineering the future.
Supply Chain Management (SCM) plays a key, strategic role in the performance of companies with above average success. SCM adds value for the company and its clients. It prevails in SCM that to achieve constant gain in competitive advantage the supply chain must whenever possible be organized from strategy, to implementation, all the way to operationalisation. Because of that it needs well trained leaders, who are able to position the topic supply chain as a strategic function. This master program encompasses these facets in different ways and appropriately roots them into various modules of the curriculum.

It is to be expected that the demand for leaders educated in this manner will grow in the future. The Master’s program M.Sc. Supply Chain Engineering & Manage¬ment obtains this quality by using a holistic approach to prepare its students for these complex challenges which pertain to industry and logistics research with interdisciplinary and practical knowledge.

Graduate program at Jacobs University: “Think out of the box”

The need to manage supply chains, production facilities and transport more efficiently has intensified the demand for educated professionals with both management and engineering skills. The graduate program in Supply Chain Engineering and Management (MSc) at Jacobs University aims to meet this demand by educating and training the leaders of tomorrow.

The program’s structure emphasizes equally techniques and technologies, economies and management, and engineering technologies as well as languages and soft skills. It has been designed and implemented in close cooperation with industry and international partner universities. Thus, students will benefit from broad exposure to »real world« challenges and academic excellence.
The program’s basic idea is to bridge the gap between classical management and engineers within one company: Often, they do not really understand each other due to different wordings, perspectives and aims. We try to create a certain understanding and knowledge, we try to open horizons, to make our students aware of the other group’s perspective - making them "think out of the box".

Apart from its interdisciplinary and interactive approaches in its programs, one of the foundations of Jacobs University is its internationality. The study program Supply Chain Engineering and Management reflects this as well: more than 25 students from 14 different countries are taught in English. Also, faculty and lecturers come from different cultural backgrounds, e.g. Finland, Germany, Britain, USA, Ireland, or Norway.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Students with a MSc in Supply Chain Engineering and Management will find a wide range of attractive career options, in the dynamic and interesting field of logistics and beyond. So far, the employment rate of the program's predecessor is close to 100% within the first 12 months after graduation. Frequently, students get job offers already during their last year at Jacobs University. About half of the graduates work in Germany.

Among others, so far graduates entered industries such as logistics departments of car manufacturers, the food industry, or the aerospace industry. They work for international operating railway transportation companies or business consultancies. In the very same way, graduates of SCEM are qualified to opt for a career in academia, in governmental institutions, international organizations, business associations, the media and non-profit organizations.

Due to their experience working and living with students from about 100 countries on Jacobs University’s international campus, graduates are well-prepared to take on responsibility in multicultural work environments. They have a specific advantage competing for jobs that require not only basic skills and qualifications in the field of logistics, but also inter-cultural skills, as well as practical problem-solving skills and methods meant to deal with challenges in a globalized world. Such jobs are increasingly offered in all institutions mentioned above, but specifically in international organizations, multinational corporations and governmental institutions.

To Windsor Law’s inaugural LLM class - a warm welcome! We are excited to have you here. Our LLM class is made up of students who come from Canada and from all around the world. They have great diversity and richness of experience that includes students who have practised law, who have advanced degrees in other disciplines in addition to law, and who all have far-reaching subject matter interests and aspirations for their LLM degrees that show commitment to the ideals of access to justice and/or transnational law.

Dr. Laverne Jacobs, Director of Graduate Studies, Windsor Law

The Windsor Law LLM Program

Our LLM program has two distinctly unique characteristics.
-An emphasis on rigorous scholarship centred on our institutional themes of Access to Justice and Transnational Law.
-An innovative experiential learning component that allows students in the LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning stream to complete a certificate in university teaching, and to engage in law teaching during the course of their study.

Students may choose from two streams: a one-year (12 month) regular LLM or a two-year (24 month) LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning. The central requirement for both streams is the completion of original publishable research. This major written piece of original research, or thesis, may be submitted as one single document or as a set of related publishable papers addressing a single research question and totalling approximately 100-125 pages.

Students enrolled in our innovative LLM with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning program have a unique experiential learning experience. In year 1, students will complete the University of Windsor’s University Teaching Certificate. In year 2, they will be designated as Teaching Fellows and have the opportunity to complete a teaching practicum at the Faculty of Law. Formalized university teacher training and law teaching experiences are unprecedented experiential learning opportunities among Canadian LLM programs. No other Canadian Masters Program in Law offers this.

Windsor Law’s LLM. offers students the opportunity to be integrated into a scholarly community. Given the small size of the program, students will engage closely with faculty members who are leading experts in their fields.

Academics

Windsor Law is a learner-centred community that values intellectual curiosity, interdisciplinary research and global scholarship. Successful LLM applicants will be able to draw on our Faculty’s strengths in its two main themes of Access to Justice and Transnational Law.

The Law Faculty’s two main themes provide large and flexible envelopes within which graduate studies may be undertaken. The admissions committee will make its best efforts to find a supervisor who shares the research interests of every suitable applicant whose proposed research falls largely within these themes. Suitable applicants will not be turned away simply because their research interests do not fit squarely within the confines of either stream. Most importantly, students will only be admitted if they can be assured a supervisor.

We pride ourselves in a small and well-nurtured graduate student community. We currently accept 3-4 students per year. Successful applicants will normally have received high academic standing (B+) in law school studies.

Curriculum

Windsor Law’s LL.M students take courses that help them to develop a strong research foundation and deepen their knowledge in a given legal or socio-legal field. Required courses include research methods, legal theory and the graduate seminar. Students in the LL.M with Certificate in University Teaching and Learning stream also enrol in courses focusing on topics such as law teaching with cultural competence, lecturing, course design and pedagogical assessment.

Our LL.M courses and seminars are designed specifically for graduate students in Law. Exceptionally, students may enrol in up to two additional courses, as either electives or to supplement their research. These courses may be taken from the JD program or from a cognate discipline for students interested in interdisciplinary research. Students will work with their supervisor and the Director of Graduate Studies to ensure an evaluation in non-LL.M courses that is suitable for a student in the LL.M program.

The MSc in Advanced Process Integration and Design started in the Department of Chemical Engineering (UMIST) over twenty years ago. Read more
The MSc in Advanced Process Integration and Design started in the Department of Chemical Engineering (UMIST) over twenty years ago. The programme was a result of emerging research from the Centre for Process Integration, initially focused on energy efficiency, but expanded to include efficient use of raw materials and emissions reduction. Much of the content of the course stems from research related to energy production, including oil and gas processing.

The MSc in Advanced Process Integration and Design aims to enable students with a prior qualification in chemical engineering to acquire a deep and systematic conceptual understanding of the principles of process design and integration in relation to the petroleum, gas and chemicals sectors of the process industries.

Overview of course structure and content
In the first trimester, all students take course units on energy systems, utility systems and computer aided process design. Energy Systems develops systematic methods for designing heat recovery systems, while Utility Systems focuses on provision of heat and power in the process industries. Computer Aided Process Design develops skills for modelling and optimisation of chemical processes.

In the second trimester, the students choose three elective units from a range covering reaction systems, distillation systems, distributed and renewable energy systems, biorefining, and oil and gas processing. These units focus on design, optimisation and integration of process technologies and their associated heat and power supply systems.

In two research-related units, students develop their research skills and prepare a proposal for their research project. These units develop students skills in critical assessment of research literature, group work, written and oral communication, time management and research planning.

Students then carry out the research project during the third trimester. In these projects, students apply their knowledge and skills in process design and integration to investigate a wide range of process technologies and design methodologies. Recent projects have addressed modelling, assessment and optimisation of petroleum refinery hydrotreating processes, crude oil distillation systems, power plants, waste heat recovery systems, refrigeration cycles with mixed refrigerants, heat recovery steam generators, biorefining and biocatalytic processes and waste-to-energy technologies.

The course also aims to develop students' skills in implementing engineering models, optimisation and process simulation, in the context of chemical processes, using bespoke and commercially available software.

Industrial relevance of the course
A key feature of the course is the applicability and relevance of the learning to the process industries. The programme is underpinned by research activities in the Centre for Process Integration within the School. This research focuses on energy efficiency, the efficient use of raw materials, the reduction of emissions reduction and operability in the process industries. Much of this research has been supported financially by the Process Integration Research Consortium for over 30 years. Course units are updated regularly to reflect emerging research and design technologies developed at the University of Manchester and also from other research groups worldwide contributing to the field.

The research results have been transferred to industry via research communications, training and software leading to successful industrial application of the new methodologies. The Research Consortium continues to support research in process integration and design in Manchester, identifying industrial needs and challenges requiring further research and investigation and providing valuable feedback on practical application of the methodologies. In addition, the Centre for Process Integration has long history of delivering material in the form of continuing professional development courses, for example in Japan, China, Malaysia, Australia, India, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Europe, the United States, Brazil and Colombia.

Career opportunities

The MSc course in Advanced Process Design and Integration typically attracts 40 students; our graduates have found employment with major international oil and petrochemical companies (e.g. Shell, BP, Reliance and Petrobras and Saudi Aramco), chemical and process companies (e.g. Air Products), engineering, consultancy and software companies (e.g. Jacobs and Aspen Tech) and academia.

MSc Aquaculture and Marine Resource Management

The MSc Aquaculture and Marine Resource Management (MAM) is a two year programme, which comprises of 120 credits (ECTS). Students learn to manage living resources in all types of water bodies, natural or man-made. The programme provides understanding of the biology and ecology of aquatic organisms and water bodies.

Programme summary

Oceans, seas, estuaries and lakes are major providers of ecosystem goods and services such as food, tourism and coastal protection. In many cases, exploitation levels have bypassed the carrying capacity of these ecosystems, leading to devastating effects on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. To preserve marine biodiversity and its ecosystem functions, innovative and sustainable solutions are necessary. Therefore, there is a need for young professionals who know how to take an integrative approach to marine ecosystems management.

The MAM programme starts with courses that give a common basis on aquaculture and marine resource management. In these courses, you will learn the principles of marine ecology and the governance of marine systems, the biology and ecology of aquatic organisms and the role of science in public policy processes. Within the Aquaculture and Marine Resource master programme, you can choose one of three specialisations: Aquaculture, Marine resources and ecology, Marine Governance. Graduates are skilled in techniques and methods for analysing and solving biological environmental problems in aquatic systems by looking at the organisms and the communities including ecological, management and social aspects.

Specialisations

All students acquire a thorough understanding of processes governing life in any type of water body. In addition, students can choose to put more emphasis on any of the following aspects: ecology, natural resource management, capture fisheries or aquaculture. Depending on the specialisation the topics differ.

Aquaculture
This specialisation deals with the culture of numerous aquatic organisms (such as finfish, shrimp, shellfish, ornamental fish, corrals, sponges and algae) in a wide range of culture environments (from sea enclosures to semiextensive ponds and high-tech recirculation systems). Production methods should be sustainable, guarantee the health and wellbeing of the culture organisms, be economically viable, socially accepted, and result in safe and healthy products. This can only be achieved through knowledge and skills in aquatic production ecology based on knowledge of biological, physical and chemical integrity of water bodies and insight in economic and social driving factors.

Marine Resources and Ecology
This specialisation focuses on the sensitivity of marine communities in relation to human interventions, including climate change, fisheries and habitat destruction. You will learn to address limiting factors in order to be able to contribute to an improved biodiversity, environmental quality and sustainability of marine ecosystems. To do so, it requires insight into the ecological processes that form the basis for marine food chains, the interaction between species and the functioning of the different ecosystems.

Marine Governance
The main focus of this specialisation lies on the sustainable governance and economics of marine and coastal systems. The goals and strategies of commercial enterprises, non-governmental and governmental organisations and international institutions are analysed, and their effects are evaluated in relation to both organisations and ecosystems involved.

Your future career

The interest in sustainable management of the seas and coasts is booming, while there are only few professionals available with an integrated and specialised training in this field. Numerous types of specialists are needed, including technical specialists, researchers, consultants and project leaders in commercial, governmental and non-governmental organisations.

Alumna Pascalle Jacobs.
"I had already graduated as a terrestrial ecologist before I started the Master Aquaculture and Marine Resource Management. I started the MSc Aquaculture and Marine Resource Management mainly because I saw a lot of potential in marine research. I did my thesis at IMARES and after my graduation they gave me the opportunity to work there as a PhD on a research project. In my research, I look at if and to what extent big amounts of young mussels attached to ropes or nets (mussel seed collectors) change the environment. These young mussels eat a lot so one of my research questions is if this grazing affects the amount of food available for other animals."
