The development and application of high quality logistics practices are now recognised to be essential for the success of most businesses and organisations, in both the public and private sectors. 

Our programmes have been developed with a common core and specialist management options. We aim to develop a students' understanding of current strategic planning and management in the movement of goods, people and information.

Students will critically evaluate established and innovative concepts, and complex models in the areas of procurement, manufacturing storage, distribution and retailing.

These factors are considered with reference to a comprehensive understanding of the legal, social, commercial and environmental factors that may impact on logistics and supply chain systems.

We have worked with the Supply Chain Management Development Centre (SCMDC) in building an enviable reputation for the quality of both our training and consultancy services.

The range of clients who have taken advantage of these programmes include the UK Ministry of Defence (the Royal Logistics Corps, the Royal Fleet Auxiliary and the Army School of Catering) and international companies such as Peacocks, Bon Marche, Interbrew, British Airways, Corus, Ford and Hanson. This training and consultancy with private and public sector bodies ensures that our programmes remain relevant to the needs of the industry.

Our motorsport management course, the first in the world, has extensive links throughout the motorsport industry, offering students a unique opportunity to work on live projects with some of motorsport's top names.

All motorsport courses at Swansea Met are industry approved and we are one of the first universities in the UK to become a Motorsport Academy UK recognised Educator (HE).We have a good relationship with Silverstone race circuit, Prodrive and the organisers of the Wales Rally GB, presenting work experience opportunities for students. Graduate destinations include Silverstone, Prodrive, Bridgestone Motorsport and Mercedes World at Brooklands.

The School of Logistics and Manufacturing Engineering is home to the 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 Welsh Transport Students of the Year.

Studying in Swansea is not just about academic excellence although this is extremely important. It's about the whole expertience of living as a student in the area - the excellent night life, great shopping, friendly locals, low crime levels, stunning scenary, amazing beaches and excellent road and rail links.

kirsty-young

Kirsty Young graduated from BSc (Hons) Motorsport Management and is now based at Silverstone Innovation Centre, working for CMA Marketing.

CMA Marketing specialise in marketing for motorsport and high performance engineering companies (mainly for component manufacturers) such as Xtrac Transmissions, Lifeline Fire and Safety Systems and others similar.

What areas of engineering are important today?

All areas of engineering are important, especially within the motorsport industry. The technology is always cutting-edge and due to this advanced nature it is more often than not transferable into defence, medical and other sectors so it is crucial that it is maintained and continued.

Tell me a little about your job.

I have been working here for two years since I graduated from UWTSD. I am based at Silverstone Innovation Centre, working for CMA Marketing. We specialise in marketing for motorsport and high performance engineering companies (mainly for component manufacturers) such as Xtrac Transmissions, Lifeline Fire and Safety Systems and others similar.

What is the best thing about your job?  

The best thing about the job is that no two days are ever the same. It’s an exciting/ high pressure industry that is constantly changing so you are constantly having to keep up to date with all of the tech developments and changes, which keeps me on my toes.  It is also a nice community to work in, everyone knows everyone and it’s basically just a big family.

Which modules helped you the most?

I can’t pick out one specific module that has helped me more than another. It was the broad range of modules that provided me with a wide business knowledge that has given me a solid foundation on which to build my career. I feel that is a very important factor.

What was the best thing about your course?

There were several of aspects that made the course special. First it was a small course so we had a better learning experience and more time with the lecturers, which is always a plus.

We were encouraged to work on extracurricular activities/ projects with the engineers in the workshop which has provided me with an accurate representation of a real-life working environment in the industry.

The course also had great links with the industry. I met my current employer and was offered my job when I was in my first year of university and I feel had I been at another university it would have been much more difficult to find work.

What do you miss about University?

I miss the whole experience. It was just a lovely place to study. All the lecturers were so supportive and it was a great course where I learned so much.

Any advice for future students?

Make the most of the experience. Interact with the engineers, work on the projects in the workshop and always do as much as you can when on the course, as the more you do the more you are recognised and the easier it is to find a job at the end of it. You really do get out what you put in.
