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.

The emergence and expansion of local and regional trade agreements, free labour flow and rapid growth of globalisation in general have necessitated reliable and sustainable transportation and logistics systems. Moreover, the remarkable increase in visits to and from the UK during the last ten years, growing UK trade and special events, such as the London Olympics held in 2012, all demand well-established transport systems, logistics planning and management expertise.

This programme is designed to meet the needs of home and international graduates who have not previously specialised in logistics and transport or those who are interested in expanding their knowledge and practical capabilities in this area.

The programme tries to explore the key notions of transport and logistics and discusses new approaches to the design and analysis of transport and logistics systems. In addition to the basic concepts of passenger and freight transport, and local and global logistics, the programme focuses on contemporary issues, such as e-business, transport systems modelling, and environmental issues in transport and logistics, thus ensuring it is up to date and fit for the current needs of employers.

The programmes is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). This means that students are recognised by this professional body as holding their professional qualifications to full professional status level 6 upon completion of the Master's programme. Students participate in CILT activities, including the CILT student conference. Students will visit industrial locations, have seminars given by guest speakers from industry and collaborate with business partners for dissertation projects.

In the final stage of the course study, all students will undertake a one week consultancy project organised by the university, which has been highly valued by previous students.

The aims of the programme are:

- To equip students with the latest knowledge in transport and logistics

- To develop students' ability to critically analyse problems that affect freight and passenger transport

- To expand students' ability to manage practical challenges in the transport and logistics sectors.

Course detail

Supply chain networks are the skeletons that underpin the business world. These networks are increasingly global in nature, with products consisting of parts manufactured in different regions of the world, assembled in other locations, and then shipped across continents to retailers and consumers. Such complex networks consist of manufacturers and their suppliers, shippers and carriers using various modes of transportation, distribution centers where the products are stored and sent to retailers which ultimately supply the customers. Supply chains involve many decision-makers interacting with one another, sometimes competing, and at other times cooperating out of necessity.

The Master in Supply Chain Management focuses on the analysis, design, management, and operation of supply chains in manufacturing and professional service industries. Using a broad definition of supply chain management (SCM), supply chain problems are being tackled in profit and non-profit environments. The former includes retailers, wholesalers, logistics service providers, manufacturers, and suppliers, while the latter includes the public sector and non-governmental organizations, for example in disaster relief logistics.

Format

You can choose two out of six specialization areas following your interests:

- Business Analytics in Supply Chains
- Location Analytics and Geospatial Data
- Retail Marketing
- Supply Chain Finance and Risks
- Sustainable and Humanitarian Supply Chains
- Transport and Logistics.

Water is a key resource globally, nationally and regionally. As the world's population increases governments are increasingly forced to act to protect and manage water resources more effectively, creating demand for scientists and managers to understand, monitor and manage natural and regulated water systems.

Why study Catchment Hydrology and Management at Dundee?

We offer an authoritative source of training for national and international students seeking to pursue careers within environmental and regulatory industries. Through a mixture of theory and practice this programme will provide you with training in aspects of applied hydrology, catchment management, environmental modelling (including risks such as flooding and water scarcity) and water law.

Facilities

The School of the Environment has recently completed a major investment in upgrading its hydrometric field equipment for use by SCM students. In addition to our already strong resource base in flow measurement equipment, covering ADCP, ADV, radar and more traditional impeller based instruments, we have now expanded our water level monitoring equipment to 25 instruments.

Fieldwork and problem-solving aspects of the course are being extended in 2012, with students being responsible for selecting, installing and operating their own sites and analysing the data from them. We have three experimental catchment facilites in Scotland, in the Cairngorms and the Scottish Borders, and students will gain valuable insights and experience through becoming directly involved in these projects.

Research-led teaching

Our experienced team of staff all engage in contemporary research and have considerable expertise in the science and regulatory frameworks affecting water management. Many of the academic staff on the programme are involved in the UNESCO Centre for Water Law, Policy & Science - the UK's only UNESCO Centre, based at the University of Dundee. The Centre is an exciting interdisciplinary centre providing many opportunities for water-related research in projects worldwide.

Field trips

We also provide you with many opportunities to put theory into practice with field trips to local catchments.

Aims of the Programme

This postgraduate degree programme will provide you with understanding and hands-on training in applied hydrology and catchment management. You will develop skills appropriate to a career within the water and environmental sectors, including technical skills in the use of hydrological and environmental modelling software, field skills in acquiring and subsequent analysis of hydrological data. You will also gain an awareness of the linkages between hydrology, ecology, legal and planning practice.

The programme will encourage you to think critically about the ways in which river catchments are managed. You will be trained in legal and regulatory aspects and management approaches balancing multiple stakeholders using case studies from around the world, part of a global network of basins built up by the IHP-UNESCO Centre for Water law, Policy and Science HELP programme. This management knowledge will be underpinned by an understanding of catchment hydrology, monitoring and modelling.

The course starts in September each year. The MSc lasts for 12 months on a full time basis and the PGDip for 9 months on a full time basis.

How you will be taught

Teaching on the course is delivered through a combination of lecture material and informal seminar-style discussion, which will encourage you to explore taught materials and interpret ideas individually.

Field classes are held in order to study monitoring and management strategies in realistic situations, with opportunities to meet the people involved in these activities.

What you will study

There are core modules (all 20 credits) in:

Research Training (Semesters 1 and 2)
Hydrological Monitoring and Modelling (Semester 1)
Catchment Management principlies (Semester 1)
Hydrological applications (Semester 2)


Plus you can choose two of the following option modules (20 credits):

Research in Practice (work placement) (Semester 2)
Applied GIS and Geospatial Data Analysis (Semester 2)
Fieldcourse (Semester 2)


Students enrolled on the MSc programme also complete a Dissertation (worth 60 credits) over the summer period. The research project may be completed in partnership with external environmental agencies.


All modules aim to provide you with as much application and hands-on practice as possible, both within the field and laboratory environments, as well as encouraging you to develop a wider range of research methods and skills.

How you will be assessed

Learning is assessed through a mixture of oral and written presentations, problem-solving assignments, feedback and a major research based project or dissertation.

Careers

Career prospects are good, due to a current shortage reported by environmental recruiters. A rising workload has been noted within Europe stemming from increased regulation in the water sector.

Globally, catchment hydrological management for meeting food security and water quality needs in the face of climate change is a major and growing issue. These drivers will increase substantially increase employment opportunities both nationally and internationally.

This course builds upon a previous course (MSc in Sustainable Catchment Management), which had an excellent record of students entering work in environmental agencies, consultancies and policy related areas upon graduation. The course also provides an excellent platform for further postgraduate study.

Contacts with employers

Dissertations may be organised using contacts within organisations employing graduate water specialists, and participants will have other opportunities during the year to make direct contact with employers. Staff are able to provide advice on many organisations within which graduates of other Dundee programmes are already employed, in conjunction with the University's Careers Service.
