Programme Aims

This programme enables students to introduce modern and cost-effective reforms into the shipping, transport and logistics industries.


This is a multidisciplinary and specialist programme designed to attract students from diverse backgrounds. As such, it benefits from the range of professional experience that students can bring. The intellectual demands of the programme challenge students to integrate and synthesise what are traditionally disparate disciplines. There is also an array of Elective Subjects that allow students to specialise in areas that would normally be impossible to cover in depth within the time constraints of a first degree.
