The H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology is launching a one-year graduate degree program for engineers, focusing on the design and synchronization of global supply chains. The Master of Science in Supply Chain Engineering will consist of a 12-month curriculum in analytic methods, supply-chain engineering and enterprise management, with an emphasis on creating networks between students and industry. Supply-chain engineers plan networks that move raw materials and supplies into production facilities, transform them into finished goods and distribute products to customer markets. The program is designed around small class sizes and experiential learning activities, according to Georgia Tech. It consists of eight required courses and two electives offered during the fall and spring semesters. In addition, a "capstone" industry experience, in which students apply their knowledge to a real-world supply-chain engineering project, will be offered during the summer.
