4 Accommodate student needs in relation to maximising their career potential by enabling them to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in their chosen subject area. Promote career aspirations by including study topics on general professional practice and study skills. This course should be of interest to students seeking logistics based careers in a variety of sectors, and there are opportunities for students to develop interests in additional business and technological subjects. It is expected that students graduating from this course will be well placed to enter logistics and/or general managerial careers in industry, commerce, applied research, and education. 13. Reference Points The major reference points are: The University of Portsmouth Curricula Framework Document The Subject Benchmark Statements. Framework for Higher Education Qualifications The QAA UK Quality Code for Higher Education.

Learning and Teaching Strategies and Methods These skills are acquired by reading books, articles, and case studies in learned journals, problem solving and appropriate use of material. Particular emphasis is placed upon practice of the techniques and processes in order to make recommendations and describe results. Programme Specification for MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management Page 3

6 Assessment Testing is through a mix of examinations and coursework. The project is assessed by dissertation and oral presentation. C. Practical (Professional or Subject) Skills, able to: 1. Reflectively formulate quantitative models for the resolution of problem or requirement specifications (B1, M5). 2. Give critical advice on the use of a given logistics model or technique (M6). 3.

Assessment These skills will be assessed through the various courseworks and through the final project. 15. Course Structure, Progression and Award Requirements This is a 1 year programme with the classroom-based units being taught during the standard academic year and the project unit taking place over the summer (June-September) period. A total of 180 credits are required to achieve the award. Standard University Regulations apply. The course (expect the project) is constructed from 30 credit point year-long units, where 30 credits represent 300 hours of study time and includes 48 hours of time-tabled activities. The project unit is a 60 credit unit representing 600 hours of study time. 16. Employability Statement Programme Specification for MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management Page 4

7 The course is aimed at the students who wish to undertake careers in the logistics sector. The examples and case studies used in the course are all designed to increase the students knowledge of the theory and practice of logistics and hence enhance their employability The final project allows students to investigate a significant logistics problem and propose results. This may (subject to availability) use data from a real-world logistics situation or involve liaison with companies with logistics problems. Seminars from logistics experts from academia and industry will, subject to availability, be arranged during the academic year and students will be encouraged to attend. All units have aspects which contribute to the development of employability skills and/or research skills for further study. 17. Support for Student Learning A Course leader manages the course. An extensive induction programme at the beginning of the year introduces the student to the University and their course. Each student has a personal tutor, responsible for pastoral support and guidance. University support services include - careers, financial advice, housing, counselling etc. A dedicated Student Services Centre. The Academic Skills Unit.

Support Staff are encouraged to attend short courses in areas such as minute taking, and specific IT packages. 20. Assessment Strategy Assessment is carried out for three of the taught units by means of mixture of coursework and examination. The fourth taught unit is assessed entirely by coursework. The coursework elements allow students to demonstrate their ability to critically choose appropriate techniques to solve logistics problems, apply the given techniques, and report the results in an appropriate manner. Programme Specification for MSc Logistics and Supply Chain Management Page 6

9 Most of the coursework contains an element of using general and specialist computer packages to solve the logistics models. The examinations test the students knowledge and understanding of the logistics discipline and their ability to solve quantitative models. A mixture of closed and open book examinations are used for this purpose. The project unit is assessed by means of a presentation which allows the students to demonstrate their ability to communicate the results of their analysis; and by a dissertation which allows students to demonstrate the ability to report their results in written format. 21. Assessment Regulations Standard university rules apply (see Assessments and Regulations Role of Externals Subject External Examiners who will: oversee unit assessment and usually attend Unit Assessment Boards; review unit assessment strategy; sample assessment artefacts; present report to Unit Assessment Boards. Award External Examiners (usually also a Subject External Examiner) who will: oversee and attend Award/Progression Boards; scrutinise and endorse the outcomes of assessment; ensure that the standard of the award is maintained at a level comparable with that of similar awards elsewhere in the United Kingdom. 23. Indicators of Standards and Quality A. Professional Accreditation/Recognition This course is not accredited by a professional body. B. Periodic Programme Review (or equivalent) The course was previously sited in the Department of Mechanical and Design Engineering and during its PDSQR in received a Broad Confidence outcome.
