Aims & Characteristics

Programme Aims and Learning Outocomes

Managing logistics is an interesting but complex task. It involves the effective management of materials, information and finance in a network of suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and customers.


This programme aims to produce logistics engineers and professionals who are competent in the design, implementation, control and execution of logistics systems and related technologies, and to develop the ability of students to manage complex systems of business, logistics and technology for increasingly technology-enabled logistics businesses.



Programme Characteristics

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University possesses a broad array of expertise and talent that spans the whole spectrum of logistics. This programme provides comprehensive training in logistics, in areas ranging from logistics systems, facility design, logistics information systems, supply chain management to operations management. It also provides the essential general management and business skills that are needed to manage and run modern logistics companies.

Recognition & Prospects

Professional Recognition

The programme has been granted full accreditation by the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) as a professional engineering degree programme recognised by other Washington Accord signatories.

The Washington Accord is an international agreement between bodies responsible for accrediting engineering degree programmes.  Currently, it has 20 signatories, including the US, the UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and New Zealand.

Graduates will also be granted full exemption (Logistics Stream) from the Professional Qualifying Examination (PQE) leading to the Chartered Membership of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK).

Student Message

Many people have never heard of logistics, but it is everywhere in our daily lives – from small gadgets to the machinery at a building site. I am honoured to be one of the students in the Logistics Engineering with Management programme. In year one, we have interesting and useful Cluster-Area Requirements and leadership subjects that sharpen our skills and nourish our personal development. I initially felt nervous while I was getting used to life at PolyU. Luckily, Dr Choy, the Programme Leader, really cares for his students and was willing to spend time talking to us. Everyone I have met at PolyU has been so friendly, always willing to help you when you are in need. I now feel excited and energised about my life at PolyU. I’ve joined a number of programmes, such as the exchange tour to Beijing in the coming summer, different talks organized by famous speakers and serving as a student helper at PolyU events. These programmes have helped me get to know the campus and broaden my horizons. I would like to thank everyone I have met at PolyU. Without you, my life here would not be so fruitful. I look forward to receiving more treasured opportunities in the future.

Leung Hiu Yan

The curriculum of the BSc(Hons) in Logistics Engineering with Management (LEM) programme incorporates the study of logistics, engineering and business. It aims to provide students with a comprehensive education through a variety of learning opportunities, such as field trips. To sharpen students’ competitive edge in the job market, the programme also puts significant emphasis on the development of their presentation and organization skills. The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering offers many additional opportunities for students to broaden their horizons and apply the knowledge acquired through their studies to their daily lives and careers. During the summer holiday, I was pleased to be given the chance to join a study tour to mainland China. The trip taught me many practical skills including interpersonal, communication and problem-solving skills, all of which will play important roles in my future career.

Finally, I am proud to serve as the class representative for LEM. Meeting with professors and sharing students’ comments on the curriculum helps me build closer relationships with both parties and develop a strong sense of belonging to the Department. I am glad to be studying at PolyU and I believe my education here will equip me well for a brighter future.
