I am going to use this golden opportunity to tell you about the study of Logistics engineering at JAMK university of applied sciences. I am Akangbe oluwaseun, a first year student of Logistics engineering.
Let me introduce you to what we do,Simply put we are involved in the process of planning,implementing and controlling efficiently the material flow ,information flow, and money flow in industries. This responsibilities makes us a very important part of all industries. We aim to have the right item in the right quantity at the right time at the right place for the right price in the right condition to the right customer.
The study of logistics engineering at JAMK focuses on three major areas of specialization. They are Logistics support,Logistics management and Logistics operations. I promise to talk more on these as time goes on.
When I first applied to study engineering in finland,my first plan was to study the ” TRADITIONAL engineering” such as electrical engineering or Mechanical engineering but i found myself studying a course that is very practical and uses engineering methods in solving problems. Already as part of the program of Logistics engineering,by the end of my very first year i would have studied technical drawing and Computer aided design(CAD),Systems engineering, Electrical Engineering,Production technology, Maintenance operations, ICT,Material handling, Warehousing operations. The beauty of it all is that,armed with this skills and competence i am ready for practical training in the summer where i would learn more from companies. Which is a kind of introduction to working life for me.So Future Logistics engineering student by the time you are through with your 4 years of studies here you would have gained enough skills and competence to survive in the competitive world out there. Remember this TO KNOW AND NOT TO DO IS NOT TO KNOW.
PLS feel free to ask questions/or write a comment. I would be glad to reply you. In my next blog i would talk more about daily life as a Logistics engineering student at JAMK.
