Work placements

This course provides the opportunity to select either a project based at the university, or one at a leading logistics organisation.

Within the constraints of the maximum length of the course, it is also possible to extend the project for a full time student to work in an industrial or commercial setting (3 months is sometimes short for training and specialist skills acquisition to a level concurrent with acclimatisation to the industrial setting).

If a full-time student finds employment with a company at the start of the project stage, they may be able to transition to part-time status, thus allowing one year for project completion.

Networking opportunities

You attend a series of guest lectures and industry visits to enhance your learning experience and to make you understand how theories and technologies are used in industry. Guest speakers include supply chain professionals from manufacturing, retail, health, food and pharmaceutical industries.
