Supply Chain Transportation & Logistics Master's Program Begins (Residency Week)

When: September 17-21, 2018
Where: University of Washington Campus and offsite field trips

Master of Supply Chain Transportation & Logistics courses are online, with the exception of SCTL 501 Logistics & Analysis, a one-week residency held on the UW campus in Seattle at the beginning of the program. Along with traditional in-class lectures and discussions, the week includes site visits to several local transportation hubs and supply chain facilities.
About this course: Logistics is the mathematics of managing goods along a supply chain. The complexity of logistics can be modeled, analyzed, visualized and optimized with a variety of mathematical techniques and software programs. Students learn fundamental frameworks for considering logistics analysis. Beginning with the key trade-offs between transportation and inventory cost, the course covers the major analytical frameworks of logistics including optimization and simulation. We also conduct a broad overview of the trade, transportation and logistics activities at the center of any supply chain operation, and highlight the relationship between infrastructure and trade.
