Logistics is the management of the flow of resources (physical, financial and information) between the point of origin and the point of consumption. This degree programme is one of a set of undergraduate programmes designed by Aston University and offered at Muscat University. This is a dual degree programme, leading to the award of an Aston University degree and a Muscat University degree.
Modules are designed to cover 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.
Activities are designed to be challenging, relevant and stimulating and many involve commercial material brought to the classroom or the students themselves going on industrial visits. Our practically based programme continues to emphasise the development of analytical and problem-solving skills that has produced so many highly employable graduates to date.
