DUAL MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAM IN ENGINEERING AND

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

1. INTRODUCTION

The GATECH-UTP Dual Master’s Degree in Engineering and Supply Chain

Management program offers the unique combination of a world-class supply chain

degree taught in a truly global setting.

The GATECH-UTP program builds on the top-ranked curriculum at the

Georgia Institute of Technology. One year of challenging coursework, cutting edge

research, and industry interaction provide to the graduates with the problem solving and

leadership skills that companies seek in an increasingly complex and dynamic

marketplace.

5. PROGRAM CURRICULUM:

Diversity in the student body is an important characteristic of the GATECH-UTP

program. While applicants are expected to have an aptitude for analytical thinking, a

previous degree in engineering is not required. Work experience from a variety of

operational and management responsibilities provides a valuable background for the

GATECH-UTP program. However, we do welcome exceptional students with little or

no work experience. We invite applicants from a wide range of backgrounds.

a. Profile of the incoming students:

Students of the Dual Master’s Degree Program in Engineering and Supply

Chain Management shall be people with interest in the formal development of logistics

based on design methodologies, interest in research with a critical thought capability,

creativity and inventiveness to address new problems, or to innovate by offering

solutions to actual problems related to supply chains, strategy, information systems,

transportation systems, and manufacturing.

They must also possess communication skills and a willingness to work in

teams to tackle complex problems involving different specialties. Finally, they must

have a level of knowledge of the English language that allows them to follow a text and

a course in this language. Apart from the general profile, they must have a strong

mathematics and statistics foundation, and also training in some key areas of modern

technology.

b. Profile of the graduates:

Graduates of this program shall be able to:

• Collect and analyze databases appropriately.

• Apply quantitative methods for modeling and analysis of global supply chains.

• Work in teams.

• Describe problems, recognizing their difficulties and develop and evaluate

potential solutions.

• Effectively present results.

• Determine the impact of solutions in the global, economic, environmental and

social context.

• Continue learning and to develop within their field.

• Effectively participate in organizations where they are involved.

• Have a broad knowledge of matters relevant to the domain of global supply

chains.

• Have an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.

c. Competencies to be developed by the student

• Application of the scientific method.

• Critical analysis of the literature on specialized technology.

• Evaluation of issues and the contemporary needs of industry.

• Ability to work in multidisciplinary teams.

• Ability to present their work in English in front of the scientific community in

national or international events.

• Greater scientific capacity to participate in doctoral programs fostered by

national and international bodies (e.g. SENACYT); and at the same time, the

academic work carried out will be commensurate with the demands of

international universities.

d. Group enrollment characteristics

Group size of the classroom should be at least 10 and at most 25 students; with

an ideal enrollment of 20 students.
