Study objectives

The Logistics degree programme trains graduates to understand the economics and administrative tasks in the core field of Logistics and Supply Chain Management, as well as closely related areas. The degree programme is semi-technical and provides students with attractive, relevant and future-oriented skills in the field of logistics using modern teaching methods and in integrated context with other degree programmes.

Graduates will have the skills to solve problems in logistics at the interface between engineering sciences, business administration and information technology in an integrative and cooperative way. This means they can think like an engineer with a systematic approach, apply quantitative methods and models, and use these to solve practical problems as well as communicate easily with technical experts from a range of fields. Their abilities will be primarily useful in the efficient operation, analysis and improvement of existing logistics solutions in the area of Supply Chain Execution.

Course contents

  • Goods transport networks, material flow systems, business control systems (e.g. SAP)
  • Varied group work with presentation of results
  • Project work within companies
  • Visits to companies and trade fairs
  • Guest talks by economics experts

Career opportunitiesOpen areaClose area

There is a wide range of opportunities in logistics. Logistics specialists can therefore be very creative in their choice of career. You can focus on the specific area that interests you and pursue this in your career. But it is also possible to find a position that requires the entire scope of your course contents. Common career options differ broadly in their source: Logistics specialists are required as full time staff by many companies, but they also work as project consultants for companies. A few example positions:

  • Purchasing/material procurement, controlling, sales
  • Production planning and control, information technology
  • Engineering material flow components
  • Transport and logistics

The two core messages for logistics students: There are excellent prospects for getting an interesting job immediately after graduation. The average salary is significantly higher than for graduates of other fields of study.
