Supply Chain and Logistics Technology, B.S.
Supply Chain and Logistics Technology is a technically-based program using information technology to optimize the global flow of industrial goods and services from manufacturer to industrial user. Supply Chain and Logistics Technology focuses on the international supply chain from the source of raw material through the final consumption of the product.
Because supply-chain functions are part of all business activities, skills acquired with this degree offer unlimited employment opportunities.
Career options for SCLT graduates include supply-chain management with domestic and international manufacturing operations, service companies, third-party logistics providers, transportation companies, distribution centers, and other government and private businesses. Graduates are employed as industrial and transportation sales representatives; logistical analysts and consultants; operations managers; purchasing representatives; inventory control specialists; marketing directors; customer service representatives; and warehouse and distribution center managers.
The Supply Chain and Logistics Technology degree consists of 120 semester hours of university undergraduate academic credit.
Beginning fall 2022 the Supply Chain & Logistics Technology B.S. Degree Plan reflects a new CIP Code. The new code 52.1301 Management Science is a STEM related field as determined by the U.S. Department of Education’s Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) and approved spring 2022 by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) STEM Designated Degree Program List is a complete list of fields of study that DHS considers to be science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) fields of study for purposes of the 24-month STEM optional practical training extension described at 8 CFR 214.2(f).
Under 8 CFR 214.2(f)(10)(ii)(C)(2), a STEM field of study is one “included in the Department of Education’s Classification of Instructional Programs taxonomy within the two-digit series containing engineering, biological sciences, mathematics, and physical sciences, or a related field.
"STEM/STEM related classification will expand opportunities for our students to apply for scholarship funding, will allow our international students an opportunity upon graduation to apply for a STEM OPT extension for a 24-month period of temporary training that directly relates to their program of study in an approved STEM field, and will provide a competitive advantage for our students when applying for internships and jobs," said Margaret Kidd, Program Director, Supply Chain & Logistics Technology.
