Special features Logistics

Design your own study pathway

Throughout the entire course of study, you will work closely together with students on real-life industry projects. Within these projects, you can work on your own individual learning pathway. You will discover which role suits you best and you will ready yourself for this role. You will learn how to develop and fine-tune your own role by broadening or deepening your knowledge within your field of interest.

Logistics Game

Serious Gaming is being used at BUas to gain insight into logistic processes. In the first year, you as logistics student get nine weeks to work on this game, called Blokko. Finance, planning, everything you have learned is dealt with in the game, including new techniques such as blockchain. The game is played across the campus by moving Lego blocks from one building to another.

Working together on the future of logistics

Cooperation with industry partners is essential to our degree programmes in order to keep education up to date and relevant. What’s happening in the logistics field, what problems are professionals facing, and what questions do they have? Together with leading companies you will work on complex issues and help shape the logistics of the future. A substantial part of your studies consists of real-life, practice-based assignments. These assignments are drawn from the logistics industry, but also from sectors such as events and healthcare. 

Some examples

For Bravis Ziekenhuis in Bergen op Zoom and Roosendaal students conducted a study on waiting times in healthcare. For DHL students researched how to innovate the logistics chain.  

Another example concerns the assignments carried out by students for the Breda-based festivals of Ploegendienst en Duikbootfestival. The students tackled subjects like mobility management, capacity management and site management. How do you get to and from the festival site safely, and what does that mean for the surrounding area? And for the timing or line-up of the festival? Festival visitors want quick access to food, drinks and toilets. How many facilities are needed and where should these be located? And what if something happens? Can the emergency services get there quickly and is there a crisis plan? Questions that need to be addressed if you want to create a happy and safe festival experience.
