Supply Chain and Logistics Technology Major

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. In addition to meeting the 42 semester hours of university core curriculum, students must complete their major core requirements, technology and appropriate track.

All majors and minors in the Department of Information and Logistics Technology must earn a grade of C or better in all major/minor courses. No grade lower than C will be accepted on any courses applicable to the major transferred to the University of Houston.
