Program description

Logistics Engineering

Are you in charge of supplying a warehouse most efficiently? Do you want to organise the chain from raw materials up until the final product effectively and efficiently? Or do you want to be responsible for the logistic processes in a harbour area?

Logistics concerns organising and planning the flow of goods, information and people in the quickest manner possible for the lowest costs, and in which sustainability also plays a major role. In the study program Logistics Engineering the accent lies on the technical and IT-driven aspects of logistics

In addition to acquiring specialist knowledge, during the program you will develop all sorts of competencies which you will need later for being able to carry out your work well. You will do this by, amongst other things, working on a project basis on ‘real life assignments’ from the industry. Alongside projects, you will follow lectures, guest lectures and seminars, courses, training and coaching sessions. You will also undertake a number of work placements and participate in excursions and study trips. The entire study program is very much practice-based. The total package is optimally linked to the demands of the profession and the possibility of continuing your studies further.

Program content

Year 1

In the first year you will learn what logistics means for various sorts of companies, what differences there are between companies and how you can survey all the logistics processes in a company or organisation. So you will become acquainted with subjects such as supply and purchasing management, law and transport management. For this purpose you will follow lectures, seminars, training sessions or guest lectures which are often linked to a group assignment.

Year 2

In the second year there is more freedom of choice. You will expand your knowledge of logistics by becoming acquainted with intermodal transport, manufacturing systems and automation techniques. In addition to this expansion of knowledge, at the end of the year you can gain in-depth knowledge with a specific accent:

Year 3

In the third year, working in professional practice and studying at Breda University of Applied Sciences are alternated. You will go on a work placement twice for a period of three months each at, for example, a production company, trading enterprise, hospital or transport company. For the work placement you can opt for the same accent as for the specific theme in the second year, but you can also explore a different area of logistics.

Year 4

At the start of the fourth year you will follow a minor: an in-depth minor in which you will further specialise in the subject area, or you will otherwise take a look just outside the limits of your subject area by following a minor to broaden your perspectives. In the second half of the fourth year you will carry out a graduation assignment for a company or organisation with complex logistical flows, for example.
