Under NUS Provost Prof Tan Eng Chye's directive and encouragement, and with 10 years of experience running the NUS-GeorgiaTech Double Master Programme in Logistics and Supply Chain Management (DMP), the M.Sc.(SCM) programme was launched in 2011. The programme has since grown in popularity and reputation. It is an inter-faculty programme between The Logistics Institute – Asia Pacific (TLI–AP), Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISE) at Faculty of Engineering and the Department of Decision Sciences (DS) at NUS Business School.
The M.Sc.(SCM) programme is ideal for graduates with good honours degrees in engineering, mathematics, computing, business administration or other related technical disciplines, who are keen to advance themselves in a career in the logistics and supply chain industry. The programme admits a balance mix of local and international students including both full–time and part-time students.
The M.Sc.(SCM) programme is taught by top academics from TLI–Asia Pacific, ISE & DS and is endorsed by Singapore’s top economic planning agency, the Economic Development Board (EDB), the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) and SPRING Singapore, Singapore’s national productivity, standards and SMEs promotion agency. It is an integrated programme combining business and engineering aimed at developing graduates with a comprehensive skill set for planning, designing and operating modern supply chains in the Asia Pacific. Special emphasis is placed on applying decision and analytical methodologies to solve real world problems and hence the compulsory industry project which will enable graduates to work effectively in the logistics and supply chain industry. This is complemented with site visits to logistics and manufacturing companies.
On completion of the programme, M.Sc.(SCM) graduates will be well equipped with knowledge of global logistics, analytics and industrial engineering to take on a challenging career in the logistics and supply chain industry.
The M.Sc.(SCM) graduation requirements include three cores and five elective coursework modules and an industry-based project.
