Minor in Supply Chain Engineering | NC State ISE

Minor in Supply Chain Engineering

The Supply Chain Engineering Minor allows you to develop skills associated with the networks and processes that move materials and supplies into production facilities, transform them into finished goods and then distribute products to customer markets. This minor takes a multi-disciplinary approach to solving problems associated with logistics, operations, network design, systems and services optimization, planning/scheduling and alternatives analysis. Completion of this minor will prepare you for the global marketplace by providing a strong foundation and integrated framework from which to navigate decisions, influence production planning, and impact time to market.
