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. In the first year excursion week you will see how logistics is applied in all sorts of companies; you will see the theory from the preceding weeks in actual practice – an eye opener! Because logistics is an international specialisation, considerable attention is paid to logistics in an international context.

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.

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.

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.
