Purpose of the Program

The objective of the program 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.

Engineers Australia is the national authority representing engineers in Australia. Under the Washington Accord, international recognition is offered by countries such as the USA, United Kingdom, Hong Kong (SAR), New Zealand, Ireland, Canada and South Africa. Engineers Australia is responsible for the accreditation of undergraduate engineering programs. Accreditation ensures academic institutions consistently meet national and international standards.

The current policy of Engineers Australia is to admit engineering graduates based on their undergraduate program to membership at the relevant career grade, and allow reciprocal privileges by equivalent professional bodies overseas.

In general, Engineers Australia does not accredit postgraduate programs (such as this one). However, you can be admitted to membership of Engineers Australia as:

  • A graduate from an accredited undergraduate program. The career grade and discipline will depend on your undergraduate degree; or
  • A graduate from a non-accredited degree and completing a competency report. The career grade and discipline will depend on your undergraduate degree; or
