Course modules Supply Chain Engineering
Theme - 2 ECTS credits
The objective of the theme is twofold: first to integrate the knowledge acquired in the courses by organizing guest lectures and excursions to companies. Second to learn from different cultures through group collaboration. Social activities are organized to facilitate students from diverse backgrounds to integrate in the groups.
Project Supply Chain Engineering - 12 ECTS credits
During the project you will work in a group of students on challenging consulting assignments, carried out within an industrial, trade or logistics services company. You will integrate all the new Supply Chain and managerial insights the minor is offering you, together with project management, consulting and research skills.
Supply Chain Planning - 4 ECTS credits
This course brings you up to speed in Warehousing and Fulfilment and Demand and Supply Integration. We offer an excellent stepping stone for students who are relatively new to the subject, while creating a challenging atmosphere for students with a background in Supply Chain Management. We do this through a cutting-edge learning experience, making use of blended learning and an adaptive learning environment. This introduction to Supply Chain Engineering gives you a great in-company and in-university learning experience.
Consultancy Skills - 4 ECTS credits
This course helps you to develop effective consultancy and communication skills. The aim of this course is to challenge you to examine the assumptions and interpretations you have about yourself and others. It helps you to examine the way you communicate in order to become more effective in getting your message across as a consultant.
Demand and Supply Integration - 4 ECTS credits
After finishing this course you will know how to integrate the Demand and Supply processes, like Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP), in an organization. You will show a good understanding of forecasting and planning in a challenging real-life business case. Finally, you will be able to successfully present the research results as a convincing recommendation to your business client.
Warehousing and Fulfilment - 4 ECTS credits
This course helps you to understand the latest developments of Warehousing and Fulfilment and the relations and impact they have on the Supply Chain, in concept and calculation. You will understand the role of Fulfilment in e-business, the ICT relations in a formal business environment for the software, hardware and network architecture. So in the end you will be able to (re-)design the Supply Chain on a sustainable, conceptual, technical and business case level. For example, to benefit from the rapidly increasing opportunities E-commerce has to offer.
