The Logistics Program is designed to meet an increasing state, national, and international demand for professionals with technical or business education and experience in the area of logistics and supply chain. Logistics professionals will need a unique combination of technical and business knowledge and skills and have technical experience and degrees in engineering, mathematics or business.
Logistics is an interdisciplinary field of study which comprises the entire set of functions associated with the flow of goods, information, and payments among suppliers and consumers from organization of raw material to final recycling or disposal of finished goods. The integration of engineering and business content is done in a fashion that prepares an experienced professional engineer or manager for a leadership role in planning, developing, implementing and managing the firm's logistics and supply chain capabilities in the global marketplace. The overall purpose of the Logistics Program at UT Arlington is to provide graduates with the understanding needed to manage the firm's logistics and supply chain systems and infrastructure and to accomplish the organization's operational, strategic and competitive objectives.
