Purpose of the Program

The objective of the Master of Engineering (Integrated Logistics Management) is to provide you with the capability to strategically review, plan and manage a logistics supply chain system with specific reference to financial, operational, control, integrated management criteria and its strategy throughout the programmed life cycle. 

There is a significant growth in the manufacturing and distribution sectors in South East Asia (and Asia in general), especially in China, India and Thailand, where manufacturing and logistics industries are booming.  This growth has increased the demand for integrated logistics professionals with a more advanced level such as this program.

Significant advancement of information and communication systems in recent years has changed the world towards globalisation of economy.  The design and operation of logistics systems require substantial planning and integration of services and support.  Due to the complexity and multi-disciplinary nature, the knowledge and expertise required to implement an efficient and effective logistics system should not be underestimated.  You will learn a complete range of logistics knowledge and skills covering areas such as the process from supplier to consumer, Third Party Logistic (3PL), distribution demands, reverse logistics, quality control, performance management, and total cost of ownership inventory management.  You will participate in syndicate groups that enable you to learn from industry case studies and presentations. 

You will undertake a capstone experience in the final year course: OENG1088 Master's Research Project (or OENG1089 Master's Research Project Part 1 and OENG1090 Master's Research Project Part 2). 

The program is delivered in face-to-face mode at the City campus.
