Subject

Logistics

Our BSc Logistics with Supply Chain Management course is offered as either a three or four year course with integrated placement year. You will examine activities involved in planning, sourcing, making and delivering products and services. You will develop the techniques used to optimise these processes to meet a range of strategic objectives such as minimum cost, maximum service and shorter cycle times.

Logistics is the management of the flow of resources (physical, financial and information) between the point of origin and the point of consumption. This course continues to emphasise the development of analytical and problem-solving skills that has produced so many highly employable graduates to date. You will benefit from a number of industry field trips to organisations such as Jaguar LandRover and the Port of Hull.

We developed strong partnerships with industry, our Engineering Systems and Management group offers programmes which are tailored to suit the industrial environment. This focus allows our graduates to build skills which are essential to industry, moulding them into highly employable industry ready graduates.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

The stats cover quite a broad subject area, but over half of the graduates we're talking about here studied some kind of audio technology subject. It's not a surprise, then, to find that the most common job for graduates from this subject last year was as a sound technician in film, TV and music. Jobs in IT, as arts officers or musicians, in marketing, or in business were also popular — these degrees can be quite flexible and give you a lot of opportunities. Another degree that falls under this heading is in transport logistics (told you it was broad!), and those graduates did particularly well as our whole just-in-time retail economy really needs good logistics skills - and graduates with those qualifications are in serious shortage. But your prospects do depend on the particular degree you take, so if you have a course in mind, take a look at the information on the university's website.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
