Operations and Supply Chain Management

Are you interested in production and business development? And do you dream about sharing knowledge and collaborate with colleagues across continents and cultures? Then the specialisation in Operations and Supply Chain Management may be your way to your future career. The programme teaches you about development and operation of global production and logistics systems, project management, information technology, economy, human resource development, and organisation.

Engineer with an international perspective

Increasingly more companies are operating on the global market, which in turn increases the managerial demands in relation to development, production, supply chains, collaborations across continents and cultures etc. As an example, it is important, that the company is aware of the available resources in different locations, so they can determine the best place for their production.

In your semester projects, you and your project group will work with relevant issues within the programme’s field of study, that challenge you to use all of your collected knowledge to come up with possible solutions.

Interaction with the business community makes up a significant part of the study programme, which is why you are encouraged to carry out one or more semester projects in collaboration with external companies and organisations. This gives you an exceptional opportunity to combine theory and practice. Furthermore, many of the courses include practical assignments and business game.

This is a full-time study programme, which is characterised by problem based project work in groups. You will be working closely with other students most of the time, and you are required to be present at the university on a daily basis and spend a vast majority of your day there.

The Master’s programme entitles you to the designation Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering (Management Engineering with Operations and Supply Chain Management).

As a graduate, you are prepared for a career where you work with the developmental, operational, economic, and social relationships in a production or a service company.

Graduates from the Operations and Supply Chain Management programme work in a wide range of medium-sized companies as well as large, well-known companies such as LEGO, B&O, Siemens, A.P. Møller, Vestas, IBM and Microsoft. Your future job title could be project manager, production manager, consultant or software developer.
