Program Overview

The area of Materials and Supply materials management has evolved with new technology, the use of the Internet, and the business-to-business e-commerce explosion. Lakeshore Technical College attempts to work with local companies to keep ahead of this curve. If students like working with people, computers, and data and are interested in working in an ever-changing logistics, manufacturing, service, or health care field, a career in materials/supply chain management may be ideal.

Whether students are planning to immediately begin careers, or are building on LTC credits to earn additional degrees, this program aims to prepare students to provide an uninterrupted flow of materials, supplies, and services. These are required to operate the organization, manage inventory levels, manage customer inventory levels, maintain quality control, develop productive working relationships with external constituents (such as vendors and retailers) and internal departments (such as the Marketing, Accounting, Engineering, and MIS departments).

While in this program, students will also analyze and negotiate contracts with suppliers, manufacturers, and/or distributors, develop solutions regarding capacity and production planning, resource allocation, and facility location, integrate technology into the supply chain to improve profitability; for example, utilize e-business, schedule the transportation and logistics of product/service to its final destination, and coordinate a simple project.
