Delaware Technical and Community College, in conjunction with Trinity Logistics and other area logistics companies, have created an associate in applied science degree program for Logistics, Supply Chain, and Operations Management.
The program is designed to educate students in the areas of procurement, transportation, processing, and storage of materials and information. The associates’ degree prepares students to aid in the design, improvement, installation, and operation of integrated systems of people, materials, and equipment. The program of study is available beginning the fall of 2016 semester at Delaware Tech’s Owens Campus in Georgetown, and the George Campus in Wilmington.
“The new Logistics, Supply Chain, and Operations Management degree program will provide students with the knowledge needed to acquire a career within the industry. It will also provide local businesses with more qualified potential employees,” said Denise Crockett, Director of Talent Acquisition for Trinity Logistics. Denise was one of the key players in the creation of the degree program.
Two years of planning went into the design of the new program. Courses for the degree include business, project management, supply chain logistics, principals of marketing, sales and sales management, and other industry related topics.
“It was a great pleasure working with Delaware Tech and seeing this program come to fruition. It was definitely a win-win for all parties involved,” Crockett said.
“This program will provide individuals with the business principles and technical foundation necessary to make informed logistical and operational decisions in a global economy. Through our business partnerships, such as with Trinity Logistics, I look forward to the work-based learning opportunities that are created for our students,” said Dr. Leslie Mergner, Instructional Director for Business, Entrepreneurship, and Logistics, Supply Chain and Operations Management for Delaware Tech.
We will be awarding three $1,000 scholarships to students choosing to pursue this track at Delaware Tech’s Owens Campus in Georgetown in the 2016-2017 academic year. Students must be enrolled full-time or part-time in the Logistics, Supply Chain, and Operations Management program, must have completed the FAFSA and demonstrated financial need, and must have a 2.5 GPA or greater.
