Transportation and Logistics Program Structure

All graduate students are expected to attend the Transportation and Logistics faculty workshop, a weekly series of research seminars and invited speakers. Students are required to complete a 12-credit thesis in addition to at least 18 credits of coursework.

Programs are designed with an advisor and/or the TLOG MSc program coordinator to meet the particular interests of individual students and to equip the students with research capability for completing an excellent thesis.

There are two streams: one emphasizing Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and an alternate stream emphasizing Transport Economics and Management.

The graduate program requirements will include methodology courses, for example in economics, statistics, or management science. Interdisciplinary programs are possible by combining work in Commerce with courses in Engineering, Community and Regional Planning, Economics, and/or Geography.

MSc students take a combination of Master and PhD level courses. A limited number of senior undergraduate courses will also count towards the degree program. Although the program of study is to be designed jointly by the faculty advisor and the student, the following courses are recommended:
