Supply Chain Engineering

(Autumn and spring)

Tomorrow’s Supply Chain engineers face the challenge of creating the engine that powers the world’s economy: the global supply chain. Join our programme Supply Chain Engineering and learn how to work as a manager or consultant for international companies and/or projects.

This exchange programme is perfect for students who like to learn to become a creative, stable, intelligent, communicative and well-organized engineer who can design, link, implement and manage supply chain processes, in a cross-organizational, cross-cultural and interdisciplinary setting. 

Supply Chain Engineering

About the programme

This exchange programme prepares you to work as a manager or consultant in supply chain engineering.

The following courses are part of the programme: Supply chain design, Inventory Management, Supply Chain Planning & Finance, Supply Management, Marketing & Sales as a focus on supply chain management and Change Management.
Besides the courses, you will also convey theory into practice by working on a project for a real life company.

Real-life projects

During this programme you'll convey theory into practice. You work on a problem at a real life company with a project team for two days a week. For participating in the company project, you will need to take into account travel time of up to one hour, as some companies are situated outside of the city of Zwolle.

Credits back home

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you get study credits that can count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So coming to Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your studies. You make a ‘learning agreement’ covering your stay. Supply Chain Engineering starts every autumn (September up to January).

Be creative!

You learn about logistic processes; on their own and as an element in the well-orchestrated chain that generates value for the end customers. You combine logistics and supply chain management concepts with methods and techniques from the field of operations research, in translating business models into well aligned processes, focused on serving the end customer. You learn to apply consulting, communicative skills for successful interventions. You are trained to work evidence based in order to create new supply chains or to improve existing ones.
