Certificate in Supply Chain Engineering

The fundamental knowledge of the industrial engineering and engineering management profession encourages a systems viewpoint that permits us to reduce costs while at the same time maintain or further increase operational performance.

Summary

Enables students to build flexible manufacturing solutions for small- to medium-size companies, and develop methodologies for evaluating the manufacturability of new designs from an assembly perspective. This program relates to all manufacturing industries and all transportation and distribution service industries. 

The confluence of information technology and systems engineering has made the roles of industrial engineering and engineering management relevant in a wide range of industries. The supply chain contributes a very substantial portion to total product cost.  Managing it requires the optimization of the entire system and its various components, that include among others, transportation, inventory, warehousing, materials handling, and customer service.

Students in the Supply Chain Engineering Graduate Certificate Program will learn a wide range of leadership and management skills in addition to the following skills: 

  • Supply chain design, implementation and control, and supply chain analytics concepts. 
  • Distribution logistics (transportation modes, inventory policies, warehousing and order processing, and more). 
  • Management science (linear programming, Markov chains, queuing systems, and deterministic and stochastic inventory models, and more) 
  •  Project management (cost considerations, cash flow forecasting, financial and performance control, documentation). 
  •  Advanced engineering statistics (probability, statistical inference, randomized blocks, factorial design, Taguchi’s contributions and more)
  • Engineering cost and production economics (alternative investment evaluation, budgeting activity-based costing, quality costs, life-cycle management and more).

 

The NJIT supply chain initiative will help enable you to build flexible manufacturing solutions for use within small to medium-sized companies. You will help develop a methodology for evaluating the quality manufacturability of new designs from an assembly perspective. This program is related to all manufacturing industries and all transportation/distribution related service industries.
