About the course

This 4-year, English-taught professional bachelor's programme prepares you for a career in the international logistics industry.

In the right time at the right place

  • Can you manage warehouse inventories in an efficient manner?
  • How does ketchup end up in the supermarkets?
  • Will you be in charge of the logistics operations at an international sports event?

Logistics concerns organising and planning the flow of goods, information and people in the quickest manner possible for the lowest costs, and in which sustainability also plays a major role. In the Logistics Engineering programme, the focus lies on the technical and IT-driven aspects of logistics.

This programme focuses on competency-based learning. This means you will acquire the knowledge, skills and attitude required in your future career. Collaboration, communication and organisational skills are key. That is why you will regularly work on real-life projects together with fellow students.

Study programme

This programme takes 4 years to complete.

First year

In the first, you will gain foundational knowledge of the key areas in the logistics industry, from supply and purchasing management to law and transport management. In addition to lectures and seminars, you will complete projects, training sessions and group assignments. The excursion week is the highlight of the first year. You will experience first-hand how logistics is applied at different types of companies. Special attention will be paid to logistics in an international context.

Second year

In the second year, you will enjoy more freedom in your studies. You will expand your knowledge of logistics by becoming acquainted with intermodal transport, manufacturing systems and automation techniques. Additionally, at the end of the year, you will gain in-depth knowledge in the following areas:

  • Supply management
  • Production logistics
  • Transport
  • Warehousing
  • Care logistics
  • Event logistics

Third year

In the third year, working in professional practice and studying at Breda University of Applied Sciences are alternated.

You will go on a work placement twice for a period of three months each at a company of your choice. This could be a production company, trading enterprise, hospital or transport company.

For the work placement you can opt for a field connected to the theme you selected in the second year, or you can explore a completely different area. Examples of work placement assignments are:

  • Improving the customer service at a transport company.
  • Carrying out an analysis of a fleet of vehicles.
  • Carrying out an analysis of the flows of goods or visitors.
  • Setting up a purchasing plan.
  • Designing the setup of a warehouse.

You are encouraged to complete your second work placement abroad.

In the term between the two work placements, you will be based at the university, building in-depth knowledge of supply chains, e-commerce and entrepreneurship.

Fourth year

At the start of the fourth year, you will take a minor. You can choose to specialise further in a subject area, or go beyond the limits of your current field by exploring a completely different subject.

In the second half of the fourth year, you will carry out a graduation assignment for a company or organisation with complex logistical flows, for example. Once again you can opt for sectors where you undertook your work placement in the third year or otherwise a totally different area of logistics.

Career Prospects

Graduates are equipped to fill a range of positions, such as production planner or distribution manager at (inter)national:

Please be aware of the fact that many graduates start at the bottom of the career ladder - in assistant positions - and work their way up to management positions.
