Engineering and Supply Chain Management

Supply chains are a major source of competitive advantage for companies, and it is essential to keep up with its development. As supply chains become increasingly complex and technological, many companies find it difficult to keep up with the growing challenges faced in supply chains.

The Master in Engineering and Supply Chain Management is a new study cycle created to meet the growing demand for professionals who can design and optimise highly complex global supply chains through advanced and multidisciplinary training.

It aims to prepare professionals competent in applying scientific and engineering principles to the management of the processes of planning, implementing, and controlling the efficient and effective flow and storage of goods, together with related services and information, from the point of origin to the point of consumption, in accordance with customer requirements. 


Why choose this master?

First Master's Degree in Engineering and Supply Chain Management in Portugal, which follows the trend of the main international engineering schools (e.g. Georgia Tech) to create MSc's in Supply Chain Engineering.

The shortage of qualified professionals in the industry in the national and international market.

The course is based on the profile of the Engineer in the 4th industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), where among others the following needs are identified: New paradigms of planning and control of Supply Chains - Physical Internet ; Zero Emission Logistics and Sustainability; Digital Transformation; New Automation Systems; Computational Modelling; Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning; IoT; Big Data and Business Analytics; Circular Economy; Transversal Skills.

Learning is stimulated through a strong practical component, including the analysis and development of case studies;

It integrates the new paradigms of sustainable organisation and management into its plan;  

It allows to carry out the dissertation of the master's degree in a business environment.
