         Supply Chain Management, B.S.: 4-year sequence


The Bachelor of Science Degree in Supply Chain Management will prepare students for a career in the supply chain profession by providing specialized training in an increasingly complex and highly technical field. The program integrates selected areas of engineering, business, management, operations, and processes.

The supply chain encompasses the flow of products and information across all companies from the lowest level supplier through the end customer. Supply Chain Managers focus on designing, managing, integrating and optimizing financial and operational performance of the supply chain. Key activities include: launching products, forecasting demand, managing inventory, sourcing suppliers, processing customer orders, planning and ordering materials, scheduling labor, materials and equipment, lean manufacturing, managing quality, managing logistics and transportation, warehousing, spare parts, and returns.

The program addresses knowledge, skills, and applied research essential to supply chain management, including instruction to improve customer service, minimize costs, improve quality as well as the application of best practices and the effective use of technology. Students participate in hands-on, capstone courses and internships to provide experiential learning. Efficient management of the supply chain is critical to the success of a company. Graduates find their skills to be in high demand.
